Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and adults need a place where they can feel welcome and comfortable as they develop their relationship with God and God’s people. Often Deaf and Hard of Hearing persons feel “out of place” when they attend a parish that does not offer services in American Sign Language(ASL). The Deaf need to communicate with God and worship in a “Deaf Friendly” environment, one that uses ASL, the language of the Deaf. We offer a ministry with the Deaf and try to meet the spiritual and social needs of persons who are Deaf or experience a hearing loss of any kind.
In order to meet the various needs of the Deaf, we are blessed to have two office sites: one in the Pastoral Life Office in Camden and one in McDaid Hall, 15 Virginia Avenue, Westmont, NJ.
