Livestreamed Mass

This weekend we will try livestreaming with the new equipment to our YouTube page. I tested it on Thursday. The camera quality of the iPhone is better than the webcam that we will use. 720p from the iPhone to Facebook might actually be better than 1080p from the webcam to YouTube. I really hope that the audio quality when we're speaking will be significantly better. Audio does tend to matter more than video. Thank you for your patience as we muddle towards giving you the best that we possibly can.

We cannot broadcast music due to copyright, but the Weekly page provides a link to the Spotify playlist for each Mass.

Attend a Private Mass

An individual, couple or family that is hesitant about coming to a public Mass is encouraged to attend my private Mass on Thursday at 1:30 pm or Friday at 11:30 am. Call the office to reserve a spot. It'll just be you and the priest (along with the heavenly host and Jesus present in the Eucharist).

Communion in the Car

After watching the livestreamed Mass on Saturday at 4:00 pm, come to the church at 5:00 pm, and I will bring you "Communion in the car." Call the office if you plan to attend.
