Is your family getting a new TV or computer for Christmas? Do you have a big screen device that’s not being used? 
We are looking for a large screen TV or monitor to use at our Lakeview location so we can stream video to the basement when we need overflow seating. This would be especially useful during the summer when so many lake residents are in town. If you’ve ever been to Mass at St. Francis on Memorial Day or Labor Day weekends then you know what I’m talking about! So if you have an extra flat screen that we could mount on the wall and use for viewing purposes, please consider donating it for this reason. Thank you for your consideration!
We can be contacted at 231-937-5757 or king-francis@ctknsf.org
