Audio recordings

St Mary's has an audio induction loop which provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by hearing aids when set to the 'T' (Telecoil) setting.

As well as being convenient for members of the congregation, the system enables us to provide recordings of key moments from the Mass for those who were unable to experience them in person. We hope you enjoy them here.
