FR. TODD FUND DRIVE FOR E-GLASSES

The Stevens Point Knights of Columbus are spearheading an effort to fund special eyewear (eSight) to help Fr Todd Mlsna, the Chaplain of Council 1170 and Associate Pastor for St Peter, St Stephen, Holy Spirit and St Joseph Parishes.

The following was written by Fr Todd:

Jesus asked the blind man in the gospel of Mark: "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man answered him: "I want to see." If I were to be asked this same question by our Lord I would say the same thing. Well, God might have just answered my prayer with the gift of electronic glasses from E Sight eye wear. I would have never thought this would be possible.

On April 26, 2018 the possibility became real when I had my E Sight experience. I came to this experience with a skeptical opinion, but I left in gratitude to God and the team at E Sight. I saw things I had never seen before. I have had bad eye sight all of my life, but on that day, things came to my view I never thought possible. First, I was able to see the eye color of my driver. Second, I was able to see a JC Penny sign from a hundred yards away with the help of the glasses. Finally, and my favorite was being able to read the first five numbers on the 20/20 line of the eye chart. What a miracle. With your help E Sight will change my life as it has the lives of many legally blind people. The possibilities are endless as to what I would be able to do with the glasses if a pair were to be mine. Thank you in advance for your help with this appeal. With your help I would be able to see. What a gift that would be. Thank you for whatever you can do big or small. Together the gift of sight will be experienced. God bless you.

The cost of these glasses is approximately $10,000. If you can help us raise the funds for Fr Todd please send your contribution to: Knights of Columbus Council 1170 Charity Fund, 401 W Clark St., Stevens Point, WI 54481. Please do not make checks directly payable to Fr Todd so that the donations do not become taxable income to him. Note Fr Todd in the memo space on your check. Any funds raised over the amount needed Fr. Todd would like them to be disbursed to help others afford this technology. If you cannot afford to contribute, we would appreciate your prayers for our success.

Thank you The Officers and Members of Stevens Point Knights of Columbus Council 1170

THANK YOU LETTER FROM FR. TODD

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped me make to my goal, so that I can purchase my E Sight glasses. Thanks to your generosity I will be able to get my glasses on June 25th. Any funds left will help others get this technology. Any additional donations will pay it forward for someone else. We want to bring the campaign to a close by June 17th Fathers Day. Words are not enough to express my gratitude. I am very humbled and touched. The speed with which this happened is simply amazing!

Thanks for your help.

Fr. Todd
