I Give Catholic
iGiveCatholic – December 1, 2020
This year’s special online campaign is “Streaming,” as we seek to pay ourselves back for the livestreaming equipment we installed in May and continue to enhance today. What started out with a parishioner on a cell phone streaming via his Verizon account to our Facebook page became three cameras and an AV system that today streams through a new Internet service provider hired in June. It also streams to a screen in the basement of the church, increasing our capacity as we continue to social distance. The components are:
- A stationary camera in the center at the rear of the church focused on the altar - $1,499.00
- Two tilt and pan cameras on either side about 30’ and 45’ in front of the altar, respectively - $4,024.19 each
- Two spotlights illuminating the front of the altar - $1,385.49 each
- A 9-port switch with 4 Power-Over-Internet ports for the cameras - $944.38
- A network video recorder - $5,525.00
- An HD Streamer and SD Recorder - $1,499.99
- Two iPad Pro controllers, one for controlling the camera and one of eight shots and the other for setting up the next shot - $990.00 each.
- A laptop computer to monitor the Facebook feed and comments, transfer the edited mass to our web site, and in the future, contain any graphics we create - $549.00
- A 32’ LCD television for real-time monitoring - $104.00
The total cost of the project to date has been $30,539.07, which includes labor for installation.
When we installed the new sound system several years ago, it was with the intent that it be able to be enhanced to livestream video and sound to parishioners who were unable to be present, including the homebound, those in assisted living, people vacationing, and even serve as an evangelization tool. We never dreamed it would become a critical need for our church to maintain engagement as a result of a pandemic. We are very pleased with the feedback we have received from parishioners, as well as non-parishioners here and across the United States. If you are among those who have come to appreciate our online masses and other presentations, please help us restore our reserves so that we may be prepared for future emergencies.

First Saturday Street Ministry
Due to concerns about the COVID-19 Virus, the 1st Saturday Street Ministry has been suspended until further notice. We will update the site when we have new information.
On the first Saturday of each month, QHR parishioners help the Sisters and Friars feed the poor in KCKS and KCMO physically and spiritually. Parishioners supply the food and prepare 80- sack meals. You are invited to participate in the street ministry by helping to distribute meals and pray with people on the streets.
The items on the above link need to be delivered to QHR (SE corner) between 1:15 and 1:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month. These items are needed to create sack meals which include 2 sandwiches, fruit, chips and bottled water. Anyone who would like to participate is welcome. Even if the sign up slots are full, you may still participate. Meet us in the SE parking lot by 1:1:30 or join us at 3:00 at the Poor of Jesus Christ Franciscan Sisters' home.
The sisters are also especially in need of help EVERY Tuesday and Saturday at 3:00. Meet them at their home 2226 Troup Ave, KCKS (next to Blessed Sacrament).
