Hearing Loop coming to Sacred Heart Church

We are excited to announce that on October 21, 2021, a new hearing loop system will be installed at Sacred Heart Church. The system is the same of that at Holy Family and St. Mary’s Churches and allows people with hearing aids to turn their hearing aid to “T” or “telecoil setting” and have the sound from the church’s sound system transmitted through the loop’s wireless signal and into their hearing aid.

The loop is made up of various parts, including “a microphone to pick up the spoken word; an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a wire placed around the perimeter of a specific area.” At Sacred Heart, this area will include only the church proper – not the narthex, meeting room, sacristy, or Adoration Chapel.
