Hello Deaf Community and Friends,
Have you been missing something in your life? What is life all about? Who are we and why are we here? The answer lies in God. God loves you and wants you to know his love for you. We have a fantastic opportunity for you, to take time from your day to day life to reflect with others, to listen to talks, to pray and open yourself up for a life changing encounter with Jesus Christ, Lord, Savior and Healer.
The Des Moines Diocese along with Our Lady's Immaculate Heart Catholic Church in Ankeny, Iowa is happy to host the next Deaf CEW (Christian Experience Weekend) on October 4 -6, 2019 for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing person to attend. We will have 3 Deaf Priests: Fr. Shawn Carey from Boston, Massachusetts and Fr. Paul Zirimenya from San Francisco, California, and Fr. Christopher Klusman from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We will also have a Deaf Deacon, Patrick Graybill from Rochester, New York.

Please consider coming yourself! Bring a friend! This retreat is lead by All Deaf People! Don't miss out on a great opportunity to meet others who want to talk about their faith.
