Autobiography of Fr. Tom Coughlin

This post is an ASL autobiography of Fr. Tom Coughlin, O.P. Miss., who became the first born-deaf priest in the United States. He started the Dominican Missionaries for the Deaf, which is in San Antonio, Texas. (http://www.dominicanmissionaries.org/) Unfortunately, I do not have the name of the English language interpreter in the video, but my source is the YouTube channel of Mr. Adam Mortel. If I have violated any copyright in sharing this post, I am happy to take it down. However, it seemed relevant to the blog. Anyone interested in Fr. Tom might also enjoy his presentation in 2003 at Gallaudet University entitled “The Art of Overcoming Obstacles to the Roman Catholic Priesthood” here: http://videocatalog.gallaudet.edu/?video=2102
