INTERPRETERS TO `SIGN' PAPAL TALKS IN U.S.

Even the hearing impaired will be able to "listen" to Pope John Paul II when he visits in October, the Archdiocese of Baltimore announced.

Volunteer sign-language interpreters will relay the pope's speeches, including his Mass at Oriole Park on Oct. 8."The Holy Father wants to bring his message of faith and hope to everyone, and we are committed to doing that for thousands of people in this region who are hearing impaired," said Cardinal William H. Keeler, who commissioned the service.

Five sign teams will accompany the pope throughout his daylong visit.
