Pharrell William’s Happy in ASL from Camp Mark 7

It may not be preaching, but Camp Mark 7’s viral video production of Pharrell William’s “Happy” in ASL is one of the most persuasive and spirited works I’ve seen from the Deaf Catholic community. I’m posting it here to spread the love, and also to show Fr. Thomas Coughlin in the video doing his thing with young deaf people. My daughter Lena and I just returned from a full week at this remarkable place, momentous for its role in Deaf Catholic history and culture as well as the Deaf community in general. Thanks to Fr. Tom and Fr. Matthew Hysell, too, for amazing interviews at camp. I can’t wait to write more of the story of this wonderful place and the people who make it what it is.
