Deafblind Awareness Week
Comment Email Print
 Deafblind Awareness week began yesterday with the opening of an exhibition at Westminster Cathedral. Around 23,000 people in the UK are deafblind. On Saturday, 27 November, a new ministry for them will be launched at The Cathedral with a special Mass celeberated by Bishop Bernard Longley, Bishop of Pastoral Affairs in Westminster Diocese and Fr Cyril Axelrod, a Redemptorist priest who is deafblind himself. Fr Cyril will offer training to volunteers to learn to guide and to communicate by hands-on manual alphabet with Deafblind people. He also gives pastoral care and the sacraments to the Deafblind community. For more information please contact: Lara Bennett on larabennett@rcdow.org.uk Tel: 020 7798 9152
