Respect for Life Program, called the Silver Rose Program, to Occur on Aug. 28 at St. Patrick’s in Joliet

A Silver Rose Program will be held Aug. 28 at St. Patrick Parish in Joliet, starting, in English, at 6 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. in Spanish.

A Higher Purpose
Share the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe and promote respect for life by participating in this meaningful pilgrimage. The Silver Rose program demonstrates the unity between Knights of Columbus in Canada, the United States and Mexico, through a series of prayer services promoting the dignity of all human life and honoring Our Lady.

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 program is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Reverend Gordon Michels # 12014. For more information, call Jerry Bené at 815.927.0056.
