There are three monthly signed Masses with the deaf community that are offered in the diocese. One is offered the first Sunday of the month at St. Isidore in Bloomingdale at 12:30 p.m. The second Mass is offered the third Sunday of the month at St. Mary Immaculate in Plainfield at 11:30 p.m. The third Mass is offered at St. Thomas the Apostle in Naperville the 1st Sunday of the month at 9:00 a.m.
There are other parishes that have interpreted Masses with varying regularity in the diocese. For look up the listing of the parishes from the Joliet Diocese where there have interpreted or signed Masses, press one of the buttons below.
It is important to know there is a difference between an interpreted Mass and a signed Mass. An interpreted Mass is when the interpreter does everything and a signed Mass is when the priest signs and the deaf participate fully in the liturgy.
