Seton Clinical Enterprise, an operating division of the Seton Healthcare Family, and The John Paul II Life Center will collaborate in providing effective and efficient holistic healthcare services in the Catholic tradition.
“The collaboration focuses on the delivery of quality healthcare services to people of all socio-economic groups, with a special concern for the poor and vulnerable and a respect and compassion for the dignity of human life,” said Mark Hazelwood, President of Seton Clinical Enterprise. Seton brings deep healthcare administration experience to the relationship.
“Patients served by our collaboration can expect care that values protection of human life from its very beginning and the dignity of the person with a profound regard for the covenant of marriage and for the family,” said Tim Von Dohlen, President and Co-Founder of The John Paul II Life Center.
The John Paul II Life Center offers patients Natural Procreative Technology (NaProTechnology) — effective medical treatment based on women’s natural cycle for the underlying causes of women’s gynecologic health issues that may result in infertility.
The Vitae Clinic, a part of The John Paul II Life Center, offers NaProTechnology through the services of Dr. Jeremy Kalamarides, DO who has been a student of Dr. Thomas Hilgers, MD. Dr. Hilgers, a tenured professor at Creighton Medical School in Omaha, Neb., and founder of the health science of NaPro Technology, is internationally recognized for his outstanding achievements in the field of natural fertility regulation and reproductive medicine. In 1985, he founded the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction, where he serves as director and senior medical consultant in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive medicine and surgery.
“We are very excited about this joint effort and look forward to maximizing our collaboration and taking this model across America to develop culture of life medical centers offering NaPro Technology,” said Von Dohlen.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 13th when the Diocese of Victoria Knights of Columbus will host the First Annual Knights Ride for the Warriors to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.
The Wounded Warrior Project is a national project dedicated to providing financial support to veterans with emotional and physical needs. Many of you have seen the TV commercial of Trace Adkins promoting the project… It is designed to get military personnel wounded in combat back into society despite their handicaps. They are first handed a backpack of items at the hospital after their injury and then provided with hunting, fishing, skiing, cycling, and hiking trips, etc. to get them back into their daily routines again, when they get home. To find out more about this project go online to http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
This is an opportunity for all to give by attending this local event whether you are a bike rider or not. There will be lots of food, music, drawings, auctions, etc. for all to enjoy. All proceeds from this event will go from the Knights of Columbus directly to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The event will take place at Brenda’s on Highway 90 East in Flatonia. The day starts early with a bike run to Moravia, Cistern, High Hill, Moulton, Praha, Shiner and Muldoon. Riders can visit local watering holes, famous painted churches, and other historic points of interest. Check in starts at 8:30am and the bikes will leave Brenda’s around 10:00 am.
With the purchase of a five dollar commemorative wrist band, you can enjoy the bike ride, music provided by DJ Krazy Kirby and live music by Max Rios and the Waysiders. A gun draw, bucket draws and best bike contest in the afternoon will provide additional fun and excitement. For those that like to shop, a live and silent auction will provide the opportunity to find something really unique. When you get hungry, hot dogs provided by Oak Manor Nursing Home and pulled pork sandwiches made by the Flatonia Knights of Columbus will be sold. Brenda’s will be selling cold beverages throughout the afternoon and evening.
If you are unable to attend, but would like to donate your time or money to the event, contact Kirby Farek at (361)772-0054—-In addition, if any individuals and/or groups would like to donate items for the auctions or help with the auctions, contact Laura Zouzalik at 512-695-6452.
