We are a community of people - Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing- who welcome and encourage each other to grow in faith and experience love. With this faith and love, we bring Jesus' Good News to the Church and the world using our wonderful gifts.
The goal of the Deaf Ministry is to break down the communication barriers between Deaf and hearing individuals. We want Deaf individual’s full inclusion in the Catholic community. To reach this goal an interpreter needs to be accessible to Deaf individuals for:
- Religious Education
- First Communion
- Religious Church Functions
- Bible Study
- Catholic Conferences
If you are Deaf, hearing with family or friends that are Deaf, a Catholic Church or a Catholic Retreat Center and you need help with getting an interpreter for any of the above services, please contact us.
