Answering critiques from several parishioners that they couldn’t hear the Mass at St. John the Baptist, the parish recently purchased a new wireless microphone system for the Mission Church in Colrain. A new mixer had to be purchased as well so the lectern microphone would remain operable. The cost came to about $575.00, and we thank everyone who helped with the purchasing, set up and installation of the equipment. We especially thank the ladies of the Christmas Fair Committee for designating their remaining funds for this purpose. Now there is no excuse for not hearing and laughing at Fr. Tony’s jokes!
