Knights of Columbus Silver Rose Prayer Service - Thursday, July 29, 5pm
The Knights welcome all parish members to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe, express the unity of the Knights of Columbus with our parish, and reaffirm our dedication to the sanctity of human life. It is to the Blessed Mother that we turn in prayer as we work to end the culture of death that grips our society. As we think in terms of ‘One Life, One Rose,’ it is most appropriate that we turn to Our Lady of Guadalupe who made known her will through Juan Diego and the miracle of the roses. Please join us for this special event. If you have any questions, please contact PGK Bob Knapp at

Our Lady repeatedly asks us to stop offending God, repent, and make reparation for the wounding of the hearts of Jesus and Mary. We invite you to help spread Her message and promote Her powerful Psalter as She requests. You can do this by joining us monthly for 1½ hr to help plan rosary promoting activities, prepare for leading community Rosary prayer, and/or make rosaries to spread the devotion for individual, family and/or community prayer.

This fascinating tour of the Mass will renew your faith and deepen your love for and devotion to the Holy Eucharist. For more information or to register, contact Barbara Brown at
