The Pittsburgh Diocese is home to two nationally recognized educational programs for children with special needs – St. Anthony School Programs and DePaul School for Hearing and Speech.

A special collection to benefit these two organizations will be taken this weekend (Jan. 20-21) at all Masses.

St. Anthony School Programs provide Catholic special education to children with development delays and autism in five elementary / intermediate classrooms, two secondary classrooms and two college-age programs.

DePaul School for Hearing and Speech provides Listening and Spoken Language education to children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
