As you already know, the only way we have been able to live-stream Masses has been to use Fr Mark's mobile phone. It is also clear that live-streaming will continue to be the forefront of the mission of the Church for many months to come. As a parish, therefore, we need a more permanent and secure way of bringing Mass to people's homes. To do this, we need to set up a 5G internet connection at the presbytery (there are no high-speed cable connections in our area of the city) and fix a permanent camera within the church. We have been given special permission by the Historic Churches Committee for this project to go ahead.
We realise that finances are difficult for everyone at the moment but if you know people who might be able to help, we have set up an online appeal to raise funds. For more details, click the appeal advertisement picture above or go to: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/rcwlvwest.
