The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend commits itself to advocate for the inclusion of deaf Catholics in their parish communities, by partnering with parishes to provide interpreters for Mass, building awareness and creating opportunities for Deaf Catholics to be part of the fullness of life in Christ's body which is the Church.
The Ministry for the Deaf is partnering with the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and St. Matthew Cathedral to offer Masses interpreted for the deaf on a regular basis. We contract with two agencies, Deaflink, a division of The League in Fort Wayne, and Community Services All Deaf (CSAD) in South Bend. Our office is grateful for the services provided for deaf Catholics.
