The next time we sing at Immaculate Conception Church in Sparks (which should be for this year's Eucharistic and Marian Conference), it should be easier for the congregation to hear us, and us to hear ourselves. From Fr. Norm King's remarks in the July 15 ICC bulletin (emphasis mine):
We will soon have new microphones for our choirs installed, along with monitors for them. Parishioners have told me that for persons having difficulty hearing at Mass, sitting in certain areas of the worship space can make quite a difference. You might try pews to the right and left of the altar, away from the baptismal font near the entrance to the worship space.
