Among the many ministries and services offered at Saint Dominic Village of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston is the St. Dominic Deaf Center. Located in a beautifully manicured and serene environment, this special ministry is dedicated to the deaf and funded by the Diocesan Service Fund (DSF).

The Deaf Center exists to provide programs and services that aid the deaf community within the Archdiocese and is headed by Rev. Len Broniak, CSs.R.

Mass is offered at the St. Dominic Deaf Center in sign language with a voice interpreter along with Marriage and Baptism preparation, funerals, missions, classes in the Sacraments for children, hospital and home visiting and the provision for interpreters at other parishes.

Rev. Broniak says: “We are the Catholic voice for the deaf community. We try to get equal access for them as much as we can.” –quote taken from Texas Catholic Herald article by Annette Baird

St. Dominic is one of only two places in the Houston area offering a sign language Mass—the other is at St. Justin Martyr Catholic Community in west Houston.

This ministry is one more reason why it is important for individuals and parishes to support financially the Archdiocese’ DSF.

For more information locally you may contact Rev. Broniak at 713-741-8721 or
