One thought on “Service Leaflet for Quinquagesima at St. Stephen’s Church, Philadelphia (1951)

    Morning,

    Rev Price’s program for the hard of hearing gains even more significance as a coda or sequel, perhaps, to St. Stephen’s early work with the profoundly deaf beginning in 1859, with the service in sign language there, celebrated by Rev. Thomas Gallaudet, to a community of about fifty deaf—the first in Philadelphia, following the first in New York, I think, by only a few years. SS served as the church for the Episcopal deaf Off and on, even after All Souls’ was founded in 1886.

    Much of this is in the two histories of All Souls’ that you posted. So thanks! There’s a third History out there that I read and thought I’d saved but can’t find. Driving me crazy…..😞

    Really keen on bringing more of the history of Philadelphia’s deaf to light. bishop white, of course, is right at the center of formalizing education for them….

    Cheers, Suzanne
