Our Origin Story
The Ministry of Live Streaming at MMOC was born during the COVID-19 pandemic in May 2020. We recognized that, when you can't come to church, it is important to see your own church, your brothers and sisters in Christ, and hear your own pastor's homily. Our aim is to keep our parish united, and reach out to others, by televising events at MMOC.
All of our events are available on our YouTube channel. Some events are also broadcast on local cable station KQEG.
We televise Masses, funerals, baptisms, weddings, and other events taking place in our church. A small crew of live-streamers do their best to cover all these events.
For families who would like to have an archival copy of video, we can provide this on a USB drive.
We welcome you to join our ministry of outreach. This ministry is most appropriate for people who have some technical savvy. To learn more about what is involved, please contact Joseph van Oss.
Our Patron Saint
In 1958, recognizing the potential of the new medium, Pope Pius XII designated St. Clare of Assisi as the patron saint of television on the basis that when she was too ill to attend Mass, she had reportedly been able to see and hear the Mass on the wall of her room.
for documenting the technical steps of live-streaming, and
for arranging our broadcasts on KQEG. Thanks also to
Fr. Brian Konopa
for kind support and for being a good sport about being on TV so much.
Our AV system was provided and is supported by Audio Architects.
