Television for added worship space
Council: 1873 - HOULTON
Our Parish Church, St. Marys’ has an ethernet system installed. There is also a video camera installed to permit streaming Mass. When the State reduced attendance from the increase that we had of 100 people back down to 50, we needed a way to have a larger attendance at Church. A line was routed from the ethernet to what we call St. Anthony’s’ Hall to provide video to a television. We can accommodate an additional 50 people in St. Anthony’s’ Hall. The television receives real time video from the video system installed in the Church. This allows 50 additional people to see Mass live and receive Communion at the Church. The television was purchased with funds provided by the Council and an additional anonymous donation from another Knight.
