Hungarian worship software to project lyrics in church
This project was started on the summer of 2005, and has been used since that Christmas in our church
(Budapest, Hungary, Mátyásföld, Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Ecclesia, other links: Virtuális Plébánia and Mátyásföldi plébánia). This is a computer program which can utilize a computer projector to help singing and praying the service participants by showing religion lyrics and pictures.

The program is completely free, but we would like to get an email from possible users to know about them and to help them installing the system, or to let them know about updates.

You can also post some reply in our forum. Although there are mostly hungarian posts, you can write english posts, too.

The program is for Hungarian catholic churches, because its language is Hungarian, the complete documentation is Hungarian, and the lyrics-collections are mainly from the Hungarian catholic and protestant song treasury. But of course it is free to use for any other target: e.g. the Taize-songs or some Gregorian or pictures, or if somebody import other lyrics or write in free texts...
