Note Date: 1/24/2018 - Deaf Catholic Community at Facebook
Note from Fr. Mike Depcik:
Dear Friends, I am pleased to inform that, through the wonders of technology, we have started “livestreaming” our ASL Mass on Facebook We know that many dioceses are unable to provide a Mass in American Sign Language for Deaf Catholics. In response we are making an ASL Mass available online to watch. Every Sunday at 11:30 am we are livestreaming a Mass in ASL from Holy Innocent’s church in Roseville via Facebook.
The Mass can also be viewed as a replay on Facebook anytime afterwards. Attendees do not need to register on Facebook to “attend” this Mass, but it is a great platform for us to evangelize the gospel.
The Mass can be found at the following web address if you are interested: https://www.facebook.com/deafmass. Please share this news with the Deaf Catholic community in your area especially those who are not able to go to church due to health issues, etc. Because this is still a new project, we appreciate your patience and understanding with our mistakes and glitches in our videos or Facebook page. We are trying to make improvements and we welcome your feedback and suggestions. Thank you and God bless.
Come and see what we are about and feel welcome to add your ideas and suggestions. Your ideas can enhance and improve our spiritual and social union among deaf and hard-of-hearing Catholics throughout the seven counties of the Joliet Diocese.
