Candlelight Vigil at old St. Joseph's in St. Louis

After Celebrating Deaf Victories program at deaf club, the group travelled to the old St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf where abuses went on for more than 50 years and the fact that same school started in 1837 as sign language program school. It was switched to oralism in 1934.

The former students of St. Joseph's recounted their terrible experiences at the old school. Then the group lit the candles and said prayers.

We give thanks to Freedom School that now owns the school for letting us use their property to hold a candlelight vigil!
