The National Chaplaincy for Deaf People (NCDP) has been providing pastoral care for Deaf people for over 150 years. The aim of the National Chaplaincy for Deaf People is to serve and work with Deaf People and the Deaf Community and to provide liturgical services and pastoral support across the 32 counties of Ireland.
The National Chaplaincy for Deaf People provides Sacramental and Pastoral outreach supports for the Deaf Community across the 32 counties of Ireland.
The Chaplaincy comprises a priest of the Dublin Diocese, who manages the service, three lay chaplains and an administrative support worker.
The chaplaincy coordinates our pastoral programme throughout Ireland with one chaplain based in Northern Ireland, one chaplain in the Southern region and one chaplain based in Dublin.
There is a strong focus on the work with the Deaf community in Dublin especially the Holy Family School for the Deaf, St Mary’s and St Joseph’s Boarding Campuses and in Deaf Village Ireland where the Chaplaincy offices are located.
The NCDP is funded by CIDP, the Archdiocese of Dublin and the Episcopal Conference of Bishops with each Diocese making a contribution to the work of the Chaplaincy.
