The participants of the school were workers and the hearing impaired people from the Center of Pastoral Ministering for the Hearing Impaired “Nadiya” (Lviv archeparchy). The hearing impaired people took part in a theoretical and practical course on the topic of evangelization. The experience they gained from this course will undoubtedly help them to battle isolation within their community of hearing impaired while at the same time help them integrate into society through the Church. The acquired knowledge from the course will help to realize the next evangelistic projects of the Center for Women with Hearing Impairment as well as the creation of a spiritual pantomime and gesture theater.
