|Many years ago, our department sponsored American Sign Language (ASL) classes. Recently, in May of 2021, we re-started this program. Our first class met at St. Thomas More in the months of May and June. The class was a beginner’s class (one that Linda Hopkins and I both participated in….it was a joy). Recently, in the fall of 2021, we held a second class that “built upon” the May/June class. This class was more advanced and was held at St. Peter’s.
Along with our teachers, Robin Sizemore and Rhonda Scott, Darrell Dieterich has volunteered for both sessions to help teach the class. We’re grateful that he agreed to be interviewed for this issue of TOGETHER. – Lisa Wagner-Carollo, Deaf And Disabilities Ministries Coordinator
