The Knights of Columbus would like to invite the Parish to brunch following the 10:30 Mass this Sunday. The proceeds will go to help fund the KofC Ultrasound initiative.
The Knights of Columbus established its Ultrasound Initiative to equip medically certified pro-life pregnancy care centers (PCCs) with modern technology that will enable expectant mothers to see and hear their babies in utero. When a state or local council raises half of the cost of purchasing an ultrasound machine for a PCC, the Supreme Council will match that amount, enabling the PCC to buy the ultrasound machine.
Ultrasound technology provides a “window on the womb,” said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson. “Even from the early stages of pregnancy,” he continued, “a mother can see her developing child, hear her baby’s heartbeat, and recognize the miracle of the new life within her.” Since this program began, we have received numerous reports of mothers who have decided to carry their babies to term after seeing the ultrasound images.

- THE Conference for Disciples + Stewards + Evangelists + Catechists. Our Diocesan Stewardship Conference welcomes Curtis Martin, founder of FOCUS campus ministries and Father Jarrod Lies, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi parish, who will inspire us and give practical help in changing our faith from ‘maintenance’ to be ‘missionaries.’ When asked, “Who are you following?” we respond “Jesus!” By participating in this year’s conference, you will come to know how to encounter and follow Jesus and how to share this encounter with your family, parish and community.
