June 16, 2024 - “I Saw Heaven Opened...” (Rev. 19:11)
Rev. Derek Elphick

The strange and mysterious symbols in the book of Revelation depict the birth, struggle and growth of the New Church on earth. The joyful refrain, “I saw heaven opened,” ushers in the wonderful news that the Word, the Sacred Scriptures, can now be seen in heaven’s light in a way like never before. This is cause for celebration.

Hearing Aid Induction Loop and Assisted Listening System

If you attend worship services in person in the Cathedral nave and you have a hearing aid with an induction loop program, you can now get the minister’s mic sent directly into your hearing aid by switching it to the induction loop program. This program is usually but not always labelled ‘T’ for Telecoil. This system has been in place for a long time but, recently, Levi McFall has been working on improving it. He would love to get a list of people who use the loop so that he can get feedback on how to make it work best for them. If you need help understanding how to use the loop or if you are willing to give feedback about how the induction loop is working for you, please email Levi (

It is also worth noting that there is a second, radio-based assisted listening system in the nave which works regardless of whether you have a hearing aid or not. This also sends the complete audio for the service rather than only the mister’s mic. To use this system, just ask for a receiver at the front desk. It will come with a little speaker that rests on your ear like headphones.
