Who We Are: St. Joseph's Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (SJCD) is a non-profit organization established in 1895 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.

What We Do: SJCD currently provides for the spiritual and catechetical needs of individuals and families in the Catholic Deaf Community, with Sunday and Holy Day Masses regularly celebrated and/or interpreted in Amercan Sign Language (ASL). 

Who We Serve: SJCD provides services to Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Late-Deaf and Deaf-Blind people, as well as their hearing family members and friends, in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, with a specific mandated service area of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. However, SJCD welcomes people from any county and any location.

Where We Are: The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered in ASL each Sunday at 10:00 am at the former St. Leonard Church, which is now part of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish and is located on the same campus as Our Lady of Guadalupe School, 40374 Fremont Blvd, Fremont, CA. Click here for Area Map
