Deaf Southern Star: 2016 (Vol. 38, No. 4)

Some of the items featured in the St Dominic’s Catholic Deaf Centre’s ‘Deaf Southern Star’ (Vol. 38, No. 4, 2016) newsletter:

  • Jackie Overall has been asked to be a Minister of the Eucharist for her Johnsonville church community. Well done Jackie. 
  • As the Catholic Deaf Centre prepares to enter its 27th year as an official Centre for Catholic Deaf people in New Zealand we are very much aware of the idea of moving forward while looking back. This is the back-ground to our Catholic Deaf Conference which will be held over Waitangi Weekend (3rd—5th February) in 2017. The conference theme: Celebrating 800 Years of Dominican Life and our Irish Catholic Deaf Heritage is a definite acknowledgement of our past. With a strong Catholic Deaf Ministry foundation, it is time to look to the big new challenge which is facing not only our Catholic Deaf communities, but also the wider Deaf communities. This new challenge is to embrace those Deaf and hearing-impaired young people who are mainstreamed and do not go to Deaf schools.
