Denver’s century-old St. John’s Cathedral installs new tech to help congregants with hearing loss

From Denver-

The clergy at St. John’s Cathedral in downtown Denver don’t want anyone to miss out on a sermon.

For that reason, the church is taking steps to make it easier for congregants with hearing loss to listen by purchasing a new system to help reduce background noise in the 107-year-old cathedral, including echos and organ notes that waft through the church.

St. John’s, located at 1350 Washington St., had the new hearing loop installed this week by Denver-based Assist2Hear. The system works by transmitting an audio signal to hearing aids or headset receivers.

“The hearing loop is to serve a portion of our congregation that has trouble hearing the sermons,” said Seth Reese, communications director for St. John’s.
