Do you have difficulty hearing the readings and sermons on Sundays?

Do you have difficulty hearing the readings and sermons on Sundays?
The parish has invested in a hearing amplification system that works with or without a hearing aid!  We have 12 lavaliere receivers available. They are worn around the neck, with a speaker placed over the ear. The device has volume control buttons to adjust to your hearing needs. Sit anywhere in the church with a direct line of sight to the altar… And you will clearly hear priests, deacons and lectors… all at no charge, just return the equipment at the end of Mass. 
Just stop by the Hearing Assist station in the gathering area before Mass. The ushers will help you sign out a device. 
If you have questions you may call Mike Sliclen at 614-519-6972; or Dan Schreibeis at 614-578-2363
