We are now "In the Loop"!
A Hearing Loop for hearing aid and cochlear implant users has been installed in the main sanctuary. Loop listeners are available for those without a compatible hearing device.
What is a hearing loop and how does it work?
Hearing Loops allow people who wear hearing aids to directly receive the sound from the Church's PA system in their own hearing aids without having to pick up a separate listening device.
Do you use hearing aids or a cochlear implant?
If you wear hearing instruments you will need to find out if your hearing aids or CI have this wireless receiver called a T-coil or telecoil built in, in order to benefit from the hearing loop in our church. Pushing a button on a hearing aid accesses the T-coil program. This T-coil program has to be activated by your audiologist. Talk to your audiologist to find out if your instruments can have both a T (no background noise pick up) and an MT program (blended micro-phone & T-coil program) for improved hearing at church.
The Hearing Loop was provided for by generous parishioners. If you are interested in making a gift to the Hearing Loop fund please contact Laurie at Laurie@csmsg.org or 314.721.1502.

Nevertheless, in their work as attorneys they handle many public interest cases against the establishment.
