The Orthodox Christian Deaf Association (OCDA) was formed with the blessing of Archbishop Alexander (Golitzin) of the Diocese of the South in April 2020. It is under the 501(c)(3) umbrella of Holy Nativity of the Lord Orthodox Church (OCA) in Shreveport, LA. The purpose of this pan-Orthodox organization is to connect Orthodox deaf Christians of all jurisdictions together in order to foster fellowship, create useful resources, both educational and liturgical, plan special events, and to introduce the greater deaf community to the Orthodox faith. For this to happen, OCDA also needs hearing Orthodox Christians who are versed in ASL to join and assist in developing the OCDA.
