Special Message from
Bishop Scharfenberger

on Returning to Mass  



Sunday Liturgies will be Live-Streamed at 9:00am 
via Facebook and YouTube

                    Facebook Livestream

  • Need a Facebook account in order to access the livestream.
  • Facebook page is or you can just search SMSandSGA
  • If you have a Facebook account you usually get a notification when there is a livestream occurring.
  • Can watch the livestream at 9am on Sunday’s and will see it on the page when it begins. 
  • We don’t livestream every funeral - only if requested by the family  - but the livestream begins in the same way at the time of the funeral.
  • The video will be archived to the page so you can watch the video even after the livestream has ended.  Might take a few minutes afterwards for the video to be available to view.
  • If not visible on the homepage of Facebook you should click the “video” tab and can see it there.

                     YouTube Livestream

  • You do not need a YouTube login to access the livestream however it makes it easier if you choose to create a login and subscribe to the YouTube Channel.
  • YouTube page is or you can search Church of SMS and SGA.
  • If subscribed to the channel you would get a notification via email or on the YouTube page when a livestream is occurring.
  • Can watch the livestream at 9am on Sunday’s and will see it on the page when it begins.
  • We don’t livestream every funeral - only if requested by the family - but the livestream begins in the same way at the time of the funeral.
  • The video will be archived to the page so you can watch the video even after the livestream has ended.  This is different than Facebook because it takes until the next day (sometimes not a full 24 hours but at least the next morning) to be able to view the video on the YouTube channel homepage. 
  • If subscribed to the channel you can more easily find the video and watch the livestream even after it has ended because of receiving that notification.  For those who are on the homepage it will not be visible until the next day.
