Jack’s Story


‘I am grateful for added technology that can assist my hearing aid through induction coils and infrared systems to hear the Word of God and homilies in other Churches.

This means I can go into a looped cathedral or church and fully participate in the Mass or other service provided. Most importantly, it enables me to hear the Word of God which is important to faith development and knowledge of God.

The Church community can continue to strive to help Deaf and Hard of Hearing person by:

  • Recognising and acknowledging them at Mass and at parish activities;
  • Provide a loop system in each church and meeting room; 
  • Encourage them to be part of parish activities; 
  • Talk to them even if it means using pen and paper.”
