National Chaplaincy for Deaf People

The National Chaplaincy for Deaf People has been providing pastoral care for Deaf people for over 150 years.

There is a strong focus on working with the Deaf community in Dublin, especially the school, residences and the centre for Deaf people in Deaf Village Ireland. There is also a focus on supporting the Deaf Community throughout Ireland through the provision of chaplaincy services that combine spiritual and pastoral care.

Pastoral & Chaplaincy Services

We participate in school and adult prayer, faith formation. We invite Deaf people to exercise ministry and service in the church

We respond to the pastoral needs of the Deaf people by making ourselves available to advocate, support and liaise with church, statutory and voluntary organisations

We strive to increase the awareness of the presence of Deaf people within our parishes, communities and dioceses.
