Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?
“The 136th Supreme Convention occurred several weeks ago in Baltimore last week. As usual, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson delivered his Annual Report where he reported on the order’s accomplishments and continued commitment to bring Christ’s charity to millions.
“I am proud to say that Knights and their families responded to the challenge of supporting hurricane victims. We raised an astounding $4.2 million for disaster relief last year.”
“It’s about the lives that we change. We show that we care and that the poor and the marginalized and the broken are not forgotten. Through our time and money, we change lives in ways that only we can — because we make a fraternal difference.”
Culture of Life
“I’m pleased to announce that we have already placed more than 950 ultrasound machines and that we will meet our goal of 1,000 later this year. … What greater legacy can a council leave than to save the life of a child?”
“We will also remain at the forefront of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. … [as well as] pro-life marches from San Francisco and Los Angeles to Canada, Mexico and the Philippines.”
Prayer and Renewal of Pro-life Society
“I do not see how it is possible to build a culture of life in America as long as our elected officials harden their hearts to the cries of unborn children: I urge every member of the Knights of Columbus and all Catholics to join the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a nationwide Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life on each Friday from now to Sept. 28.”
