I've visited megachurches with professional musicians and they are nice, but not really where I would choose to put my stewardship dollars. I have also had talks with people who are completely put off by my parish's mediocre sound system to the point where they don't want to attend. It is an okay sound system, but you wouldn't mistake it for a music hall. Again, it would be nice in a world with limitless funds but I have trouble making it make-or-break priority. Agreed. It's not about the sound system. That said, it's an important means of getting the message across and if it's stopping people, it would be a good idea to get it changed/improved.Sound systems of this kind apparently cost tens of thousands of dollars. One of our local parishes is in the same position and is currently taking up collections to fix it.CCSand
