Deaf Ministry supported by BAA

Gifts to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal support a range of ministries that are reaching out in love and service in our diocesan community. For some 25 years, this has included Deaf Ministry.

Every Sunday at 10 a.m. at St. Paul’s Co-Cathedral in Saskatoon, Roberto Godoybaca provides sign language interpretation of the Mass for the deaf community.

“This is a very important service to bring to our deaf people,” says Roberto. “Without it, they would not feel they also are a part of the body of Christ.”

Coordinator Jacqueline Saretsky, works with priest chaplains and parish volunteers, provides spiritual care to those in hospital.

Funded by the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, the office of Hospital Chaplaincy provides Catholic spiritual care at Royal University Hospital and Saskatoon City Hospital in Saskatoon, answering Our Lord’s call to visit and care for the sick (Matthew 25:36). Priest chaplains are available to provide sacraments, and offering comfort, a listening ear and prayer to those who are facing illness, sickness, trauma, or death.
