Deep within the heart of every man is a call to live with purpose and meaning; a call to lead, to protect, to serve and to defend.

Men today need a band of brothers - other Catholic men to share in that call, who walk together on the journey towards something better.

The Knights of Columbus is a trusted name, tried by time, present where men are, providing inspiring resources and support for strengthening your faith and living a life of virtue.

Knights lead with faith.  Knights protect our families.  Knights serve those in need.

When the world says men should step aside, Knights of Columbus step up.

We are Catholic men.  We live by principles informed by faith.  We are sons, fathers, husbands, and grandfathers.  Join us on life's greatest adventure to discover the man God calls you to be.

I stopped by to visit Change Point in Hot Springs today.  Today was Kelly Jo’s last day of volunteering in operating the ultrasound machine on Thursdays, her day off.  Her normal job is as an ultrasound technician at Children’s Hospital in Little Rock.  Kelly Jo has received a promotion at Children’s which causes her to work more of a regular schedule and eliminates her Thursdays off.


Six years ago, the Knights of Columbus council 6419 bought and donated an ultrasound machine to Change Point.  The personnel there encourage expectant mothers to have an ultrasound test performed with the idea that if an expectant mother sees the baby in her womb, they would be less likely to have an abortion. JoAnn Carter, the Director at Change Point, told me that last year they had a 100% success rate of convincing expectant  mothers to bear their child to term and so far this year has been a 100% success rate as well.  She said that in six years, they have saved 810 babies as a result of the machine.


Today, Kelly Jo was training a volunteer RN on the machine and I was hoping to catch both of them, and thank Kelly Jo for her service and thank the volunteer RN as well, but I missed both of them.  I did however get to meet another RN, Betty Smith,  who is on staff at Change Point.


JoAnn told me that today was a sad day because a young lady had come in to get an ultrasound test and it turned out that the infant was deceased in her womb.  So everybody was sad in that office today.  It is ironic that on Kelly Jo’s last day, she discovered a deceased unborn baby.


JoAnn told me that she has a service technician from Memphis come by twice a year to check out the machine and each visit costs Change Point $500.  So it is good that the Baby Bottle Campaign the Knights conduct at our local Catholic churches gives Change Point some operating funds.  Other local churches conduct Baby Bottle Campaigns, as well.
