Our Mission

We, the Deaf Catholic Community of the Diocese of Rochester, are called by God to celebrate and share our gifts with one another and the entire People of God, to actively participate in every aspect of the Church’s life, and to reach out to those Deaf and Hard of Hearing Catholics who hunger for the word of God and a community of faith.
