Trilingual Community Mass

Hoy Sunday we will have our Trilingual Community Mass (Spanish, English and ASL) at 11:00 am. The liturgy process for tomorrow will be in the context of celebrating the historical legacy of Rev. Thomas Gallaudet & Rev. Henry Winter Syle, the Apostles of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Therefore, in our liturgy we will be using the exercise of silence a lot and during the peace we will say greetings by spelling our names in sign language. Remember, the opposite of exclusion is participation, so you will also see the incredible participation of our deaf sisters and brothers.

And the reflection of the sermon will be based on the healing of the deaf in the Gospel of Mark (7: 31-37) and we will also discuss our realities when we become deaf or hard hearing at the word of God. That is, selective deafness.

And then we will be enjoying some delicious sandwiches which we already have. What we need is that you bring: water, juices, soft drinks, and sweet cookies.

Do not stay, invite someone and come to worship in community. Blessings.


Fr. Luis
