Girl pray for the sprituality


We believe that Deaf people have the right to celebrate their faith in their own language, to participate in liturgical celebrations, develop and celebrate their own spirituality and discover meaning in life.


Whilst people are staying home, JPC have been providing videos in faith to support the community to stay connected in their faith through their language of Auslan.  Please check out our Faith & Reflection Video Series as well as our Prayer Series Videos.


Due to the coronavirus covid-19 global pandemic, JPC have suspended Mass services at the centre.  As an alternative, we are providing Auslan Interpreters for the live streamed Mass from St Patrick’s Church.  Join us in watching the televised Mass on C31 (channel 44) each Sunday at 11am.  Alternatively you can watch live at from 11am each Sunday.

CURRENTLY SUSPENDED – 3rd Sunday of each month: On the third Sunday of each month, JPC holds an Auslan accessible service. We are providing the 3rd Sunday Mass via our website homepage and Facebook page

2nd Sunday of each month:  at present, we are no longer providing Auslan access to the Mass at  St Francis Melbourne (Lonsdale St, Melbourne).
