Deaf Liturgy

Mass, the Bible and the Sacraments

The Emmanuel Centre is currently working with the Archdiocese of Perth’s Centre for Liturgy to develop a series of liturgical resources for our Deaf community – watch this space!

However, there are several online tools that we just have to share right now:

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community Catholic Ministry:

The Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference website encourages Church agencies and faith communities to discover and celebrate the beauty and strength of the Body of Christ by promoting participation of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, including their families and friends in the life of the Church.

The Auslan Bible:

A project by the Bible Society to make The Word accessible for all Deaf christians. We hope it will be a wonderful resource for you!

Mass For You At Home:

Online Mass with Auslan, produced by the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong in partnership with the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference

Sacraments with People with Disability:

These guidelines have been published by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference under the guidance of the Bishops Commission for Pastoral Life with the assistance of the Australian Catholic Disability Council.
