Technology - Livestreaming Masses
Holly Michelcavage ext 109

Arrive 15 minutes prior to Mass.

The cameras to livestream Mass are already fixed on the wall. There is a desk set up in the choir room that has the coordinating equipment needed to operate the cameras (computer, monitors to see what's on the camera, joy stick to operate movement). It's pretty simple if you're comfortable with a computer - we train and there are notes for assistance.

Turn on the camera approximately 10 minutes before Mass starts. Zoom in and zoom out.

You will still be able to participate in most of the Mass - and most importantly - receive Jesus in the Eucharist!

Turn off camera after Mass has ended.
