There are several interpreted masses for the Deaf Community throughout the Diocese of Joliet. Please check out for interpreted mass locations and times.
An ASL-interpreted Mass is offered on Sundays, at varies dates / times, at few designated parishes. There will be the first few pews on the main floor by the altar (in front of the interpreters) which are reserved for our deaf / hard-of-hearing parishioners and their families. 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.
