Our Lady of Refuge has installed cameras and is Live-Streaming the Sunday 8am Mass each week. The videos can be viewed live or at a later day/time via links to the Parish YouTube Channel on the Parish website Livestream page: https://olorcc.org/livestream
Our next step is to install projectors and screens. These will provide a much better technology for displaying music, presentations from the Archbishop, and other video presentation needs. We intend to begin simply by projecting the song lyrics at appropriate times during Mass. Based on your feedback, we will discuss how to progress after that.
We will be installing a pair of retractable screens, one on each side of the altar. The projectors will be mounted up against the ceiling, just in front of where the ceiling steps up, to avoid being a visible distraction from most locations within the church.
The equipment has been on order for several months. We are hoping that it will arrive and be installed in October, but we won’t be surprised if it doesn’t arrive until later. This type of technical equipment has been in short supply since the beginning of the Covid pandemic. We will start using this equipment as soon as everything becomes available and is installed, but we are communicating now so that you won’t be surprised by this new addition to our church.
We are excited to utilize this new technology to enhance our worship while keeping the solemnity and focus on the Mass.
