Signed Mass beginning of more outreach by archdiocese to deaf Catholics

By Natalie Hoefer • Catholic News Service • Posted May 19, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS (CNS) — The conversation before Mass was boisterous — words of welcome, friends greeting each other, catching up, talking of their excitement about the upcoming Mass and presentation.

The volume would have raised a racket — had it been verbal.

But the chatter was communicated in a flurry of fingers using American Sign Language.

The exchange took place at St. Matthew the Apostle Church in Indianapolis on a recent Wednesday, when the Indianapolis Archdiocese’s Office of Catechesis arranged for a special Mass, dinner and talk for the archdiocese’s deaf community.
