The St. Martin’s Deaf Community

The St. Martin’s Deaf Community

The St Martin Deaf Community is a Catholic Deaf Ministry comprising both the hearing and non-hearing parishioners. Founded on July 16th 2017 by Rev. Fr. YAO KOUAME RENÉ DAN, SMA, the Community’s vision is to build a foundation for an inclusive Christian Community through evangelization and empowerment. Its mission is commitment to facilitate the integration process through Mass interpretation, Education and Empowerment.

The community seeks to bridge the communication gap and facilitate the process of integration between the hearing community and the deaf community at the parish through the recognition and the usage of Kenyan Sign Language (KSL) as a means of communication.

Membership is open to everybody and registration is done at the Parish Office at the Mary Mother of God, Embulbul
