On a warm Tuesday afternoon on June 8th the 68th Ultrasound dedication took place at Immaculate Conception Parish in Three Rivers. This was a unique dedication blessing of a 31ft mobile unit that included a lifesaving Ultrasound graciously sponsored and lead by Pope Paul VI Council #4141, Three Rivers.

As the dedication proceeded the love of Christ became a common theme in the scripture readings and comments. Dcn. Mike McCloskey asked for support to name this mobile life saving unit the “Love Bus” as a following of the love of Christ and not to be mistaken by the love buses in the sixties.

Fr. R. Mathias lead a wonderful blessing of the Love Bus and Ultrasound that was followed by a check presentation to Dawn Bowen, Executive Director, Pregnancy Helpline Center. A plague presentation by Deputy Grand Knight John Stedman and Financial Secretary Larry Lalsh followed with congratulatory remarks by State Life Director, Ed Strach and State Warden, Jim Kraus.
