OUR TOP STORY
Christmas comes early. Due to the incredible generosity of an anonymous donor, we are going to have a completely revamped sound system. The “reveal Sunday” will now be November 25.
On the reveal Sunday you will notice several things. First, and most obviously, the sound will be clearer. Less obviously, we will have installed a “CopperLoop”. This is an amazing technology that will allow you to literally tune your hearing aid into the sound system. We will be “training” you all during those first few weeks, and will print instructions in all of our bulletins moving forward. This is only possible because of the generosity of a parishioner.
