Each year, from early March through mid-December, Silver Roses are stewarded by Knights of Columbus councils along routes from Canada to Mexico. 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 program is a Supreme Life Program for which all participating councils can get credit for the Columbian Award [SP-7] and Star Council.
Councils have an opportunity to participate in the Silver Rose program this year without the need to arrange a time for their parish. All they need to do is to promote this to the council and parish and invite them to participate online. A summary flyer for this program is available for download.
Councils participating in the Columbus Diocese Supreme Silver Rose Program will be participating virtually through GoToMeeting and need to do the following:
- Check the flyer linked above for GoToMeeting information.
- Collect information either before or after the event regarding the number of Knights and others from your families and parish who participate.
- Complete and submit Fraternal Programs Report Form 10784 either online (fillable PDF file) or download, print, and fill it out and send it via email to Supreme at email@example.com and complete the State Program Report as a LIFE program online at ohiokofc.org. Be sure to retain a copy for filling out the Supreme Columbian Award Application Form SP-7 at the end of the fraternal year.
- If you have any questions, contact your District Deputy, OR Rod Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
Share the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe and promote respect for life by participating in this meaningful pilgrimage. We thank Council 1056 for hosting this special evening. We hope your council will pray with us.
