I am pleased to inform you I have been elected to be the chairperson for the Catholic Deaf Association (CDA) from 2022-2025. I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and share some of my background. Since 2017, I have been an active member of the CDA and in that time I have attended pilgrimages to Walsingham and in 2018, to Lourdes. In between the pilgrimages, the CDA arranges conferences in England and Wales, and this is a good way for Deaf people to attend. I am excited to be working with the members of the council to bring in new ideas for the future of the CDA. My email address is if you need to contact me. I will be happy to answer questions or queries that you may have. Joselyn Taylor
