Deaf-blind Catholic priest Cyril Axelrod launches his third book

Fr. Cyril Axelrod, the author of And the Journey Begins, launched its sequel, Still on that Journey, at Park Inn by Radisson, Newlands, on Wednesday 16 February 2022.

Turning 80 next week, he was born deaf and has ministered to deaf and deaf-blind communities across the world, including South Africa, China and the UK.

In 1980, Axelrod was diagnosed with Usher Syndrome, which leads to progressive blindness, and became completely blind in 2000. Axelrod uses his hands to interpret the sign language used by a speaker or through his communication assistants.

Fr. Axelrod is not a “former” Catholic priest, he is a retired priest who is still ministering. He is still a priest.
