Good afternoon, Brothers.
Per the attached, we cordially invite you to attend the joyous blessing of the new ultrasound machines placed at the Pregnancy Resource Center of Metro Richmond (PRC) as a result of the St. Bridget Knights of Columbus Council 5476 “Jennifer Stivers Campaign To Save the Lives of the Most Vulnerable”. The event is scheduled for 3:00pm, Sunday, March 29th, at the PRC.
His Excellency, Bishop Barry C. Knestout, Bishop of the Diocese of Richmond, and the Reverend Monsignor William H. Carr, Pastor of St. Bridget Catholic Church, will be on hand to bless the new machines and the mission of the Pregnancy Resource Center to save the lives of the unborn. Tours of the facility will be provided by PRC Board members and staff beginning at 2:00pm, followed by a brief program and the blessing at 3:00pm.
The St. Bridget Knights made this initiative its core priority for 2019, and our fundraising was extremely successful. Including the funds matched by Supreme, the initiative raised over $87,000, allowing the PRC to purchase three new ultrasound machines, including one being placed at its new medical center in the South Side of Richmond. Our Council Brothers and Parish were very generous in their financial support, and the National Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Program matched our local contributions dollar-for-dollar. We hope you’ll come join us and celebrate this blessed achievement!
Thank you for continued leadership and support of our Council and its initiatives, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
God bless, and Vivat Jesus!
Bart Leahey, Grand Knight
