The Silver Rose...A Higher Purpose
The Knights of Columbus share the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe and promote respect for life by participating in this meaningful pilgrimage. The Silver Rose program demonstrates the unity between Knights of Columbus in Canada, the United States and Mexico, through a series of prayer services promoting the dignity of all human life and honoring Our Lady.
Each year, from early March through mid-December, Silver Roses are stewarded by Knights of Columbus councils and transported along routes from Canada to Mexico and the United States.
Every stop the Silver Rose makes throughout the pilgrimage is a rosary-centered occasion for Knights, parishioners and community members to pray for respect for life, for the spiritual renewal of each nation, and for the advancement of the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The Silver Rose made a stop at St Joseph on Sunday October 7. Parishioners had an opportunity to place intensions and prayers at the front of the church. Those intensions will be secured and make the trip to Mexico to Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Knights in Action
There were many events this past year where the knights played a role to benefit the community, to pray, to honor, to learn, to earn a new degree, to walk for the right to life, to thank others for their life long commitments, or to simply share time together with the breakfast crew. It is said that a picture paints a thousand words. So here are some pictures from this past year that tell the story of our council in not so many words. Thank you Knights for your ongoing commitment to serve others.
