Ultrasound Initiative

[sharethis-inline-buttons]

Knights of Columbus Council 8077

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton ministries unite with the Knights of Columbus

The Ultrasound Initiative sponsored by the Knights of Columbus supreme Council has provided over 1000 ultrasound machines to pregnancy centers around the world. Council 8077 is proud to lead this initiative at our parish. However, a task this size will be much more successful with the help of the entire parish. Father Edward Lucero and the ministries at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton have agreed to help with this initiative.

Overview

The Knights of Columbus works together as an organization to purchase ultrasound machines for qualifying pregnancy centers. After the state and or local counsel raises 50% of the cost, the Knights of Columbus supreme Council will provide the other 50% to complete funding for purchase of an ultrasound machine.

A Higher Purpose

Saving lives by helping each abortion minded woman to choose life by viewing their unborn children on ultrasound machines at pro-life pregnancy centers is a successful way to save our children. This initiative is funded by the Knights of Columbus state and local councils with matching grants from supreme Council’ culture of life fund.

Roy Champeau Council 8077 ultrasound initiative

Working with ministries of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Parish, Council 8077 is raising $17,000 to purchase an ultrasound machine to be placed at a pro-life pregnancy center where it is most needed.

How can you help

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, the day before Mother’s Day, we will celebrate all mothers at a fundraising event. The dinner will be at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic church. Tickets are $30 per person; a table of eight can be purchased for $300 which will include a full-page ad in the event program. Live music will be provided for your entertainment. There will also be a raffle and auction items to include dinner with Bishop Weisenberger. Bishop Weisenburger has graciously excepted our invitation to attend and speak at the dinner.
