Welcome to the Love Bus and the 68th Ultrasound Dedication!
Thu, Jun 17, 2021 9:28 AM-
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.
Special thanks were expressed by Jim Highfield to the Livingston County Ultrasound Initiative and the following councils that supported this initiative to Defend Life.
