Over the past few months, we have become increasingly aware of the limitations of the sound system in the cathedral. Parishioners and visitors alike are finding it very difficult to hear the officiant or homilist during services. We have a solution, but we need your help.
For major services, such as Christmas and Easter, our property department rents six speakers, stands and cables to bring the sound system up to acceptable levels. This has created a remarkable difference in sound quality, and parishioners comment how much clearer they can hear the liturgy and homily. Did you know that it costs approximately $800 to rent the speakers and equipment each time?
Our desire is to enhance the sound for you 52 Sundays of the year – not just on special services. The following is the quote we have received to purchase the speakers and equipment:
6x QSC K10.2 Speakers: $6000
6 K&M Speaker Stands: $900
Installation & PA tuning: $500
Grand Total: $7700 + HST
Unfortunately, our budget does not have room for this expense. So, we are calling on the cathedral community to assist us. If you feel moved to help improve the sound quality in the cathedral permanently, we hope you will consider donating. Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated.
Money raised over the cost of the speakers and equipment will go towards purchasing additional fans for the Nave and Chancel.
