New Technology Coming to Mary Mother

Mary Mother has received a very generous donation from parishioners Doug and Nancy Schmid in memory of their deceased son David, to purchase and install new technology in our worship space. This technology includes the following:
 
  • 2 – 16’ screens in the corners with projectors behind each screen
  • 3 cameras
  • 4 - 55”  monitors to replace the old monitors in the Atrium
The projectors and screens will be installed in each of the two front corners of the worship space as you are facing the altar. The screens will be angled towards the seating area so people on the opposite sides of the space can see the images on the screens. We will use the screens and projectors in lieu of worship aids and hymnal books. The three cameras will enhance the viewing of certain portions of Mass, including baptisms at the font and also enhance our live-streaming of Mass.
 
This new technology will be be useful when Mary Mother hosts Archdiocesan events, such as the School of Discipleship, conferences, Archdiocesan Youth Day, etc. and also for our own events. Youth and  Adult Formation look forward to using this technology for Parish retreats, youth ministry and other Faith Formation events.  We will also be updating the cabling in the church. This will allow us to stream Mass on the monitors in the Atrium. 
 
The install will start the week of June 21. Due to the installation, please make note of the following:
 
No Daily Mass
Monday, June 21 - Friday, June 25
 
We will also not be live-streaming Mass on Saturday, June 26.
