Pastoral Ministry with the Deaf

Charity = Justice = Inclusion

Responding to the Vatican’s recent mandate to “offer Deaf persons integral assistance for their complete self-realization”, Catholic Charities’ Pastoral Ministry with the Deaf carries on the work begun early in the twentieth century by local Catholic pioneers in Deaf Ministry who first realized this great spiritual need. As the Pontifical Healthcare Council declared in its November 2009 recommendations, “Each large city should have a church/parish where the liturgy allows the active participation of people with hearing problems… and (the Church should) promote due respect for the dignity and rights of Deaf people, favoring their full social integration.”

"Providing for the spiritual and social service needs of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Catholics and their families in the Archdiocese of Newark."
