Silver Rose Prayer Service to restore the Culture of Life in our society

posted Dec 26, 2015, 4:59 PM by Christopher Parent   [ updated Mar 2, 2017, 7:28 PM ]

The Suffield Knights Council 6281 are hosting a prayer service on November 16, 2016 at 7PM at Father Ted Hall at Sacred Heart Church followed by a reception with food and drink. Please join us in praying to Our Lady to strengthen our efforts to restore the Culture of Life in our society. This is an occasion for prayer and spiritual renewal centered on the rosary.

The Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose has been a Knights of Columbus tradition for 56 years. In 1960, groups of Columbian Squires in Mexico, Canada and the United States decided to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe by carrying a rose across North America from Canada to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico. In 2001 Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson, at the 119th Supreme Council Meeting in Toronto, addressed the effort in culture of life terms, referring to the Our Lady of Guadalupe - One Life, One Rose Program. He urged that it be expanded to every North American jurisdiction.

In recent years the program has expanded from three to six silver roses traveling the western, central, and eastern corridors of North America, with Knights of Columbus from Canada to Mexico carrying the roses from destination to destination, and finally to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico.
