stritalogo2.jpg

Beginning with only eleven students and a staff of three Sisters of Charity, a young priest, Father Henry Waldhaus, embarked on a mission which would produce the first accredited high school for the deaf in Ohio. This year, St. Rita School for the Deaf is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Joining us to share some history of the school and discuss its mission is St. Rita Executive Director Gregory Ernst.
