I was so proud of our parish's Knight of Columbus Council yesterday. They raised over 800.00 from a pancake breakfast to contribute towards an ultrasound machine for a local family health center. In a nearby city, a similar center has one donated by K of C funds and they credit the machine with saving 18 babies. The moms came in contemplating an abortion and when they were able to see the images of their unborn children on the ultrasound, they decided to give them life.
We are a small, country parish with many families struggling in these tough economic times. The amount that the Knights raised is truly the widows mite.
A couple of our boys worked with Kevin from early morning to late afternoon cooking food, serving and cleaning to help make this pancake breakfast possible. They wanted to work to help unborn babies and they worked HARD. Good job men.
