Orthocath is a webblog written by a man who has become an Orthodox Christian, left the Church for some reason, and then come back. His parents were both deaf, and he learned American Sign Language. Additionally, he is sensitive to the Orthodox Church’s response and efforts toward the deaf community. In the following blog posts he shares and develops this:

Orthocath: Orthodox Christians Who are Deaf and Blind

Orthocath writes,
