    within the Life of the Church

"Welcome one another, then, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God."    Rom 15:7
The Deaf Apostolate provides pastoral care, sacramental preparation, religious education, and a regular schedule of Masses in American Sign Language with the Catholic community who are deaf or hard of hearing. Fostering faith formation and providing full access into the life of the church are the primary goals of the Apostolate. The Apostolate is supported in part by the Annual Catholic Charities Appeal, foundations and donations. The Deaf Apostolate is in touch with over 900 families with Deaf members. 

Come join our Catholic Deaf Community.  Join us for our weekly Masses in ASL and the other activities that renew and enliven our Catholic faith!
