Bob Dannemiller, Chairman
For over 50 years, the Knights of Columbus has sponsored the Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose Program to honor the Blessed Virgin under her title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of America. The purpose is to honor Our Lady and to reaffirm our commitment to the sanctity of life. The Silver Rose symbolizes the commitment of the Knights of Columbus to restoring respect for the sanctity of human life from conception until death.
This year the Knights are “running” five Silver Roses across Canada and the United States. The Knights of Virginia will receive the Silver Rose on April 5 and depart on April 26, heading south to the Knights of North Carolina.
I am hoping to demonstrate the extraordinary work the Virginia Knights do each day in their devotion to the sanctity of life. Contact your District Deputy in advance of the February 28 state quarterly meeting so that we can include your council in this important effort.
