(10/12/2018) Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose Program
The Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose Program began in 1960 as a project of the Knights of Columbus Columbian Squires of North America to honor the Blessed Virgin under her title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas. The program has continued since then as a project in several Knights of Columbus jurisdictions. Each year, several Silver Roses "honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe and reaffirming our commitment to the sanctity of human life" are carried by Knights from Canada, through the United States, and into Mexico to arrive at the Basilica in Monterrey, Mexico on December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
This year, six Silver Roses are traveling through the United States in honor of our Blessed Mother. One of the Silver Roses arrives in Maryland on October 3, 2018, and will remain in Maryland for three weeks, until October 23, 2018, when it will be delivered to Knights in the District of Columbia. Please join the Knights for the Prayer Service honoring our Blessed Mother and reaffirming our commitment to the sanctity of life.
On October 12th, the Marian Devotional Prayer Service will be hosted by Holy Trinity Council 3413 at the Columbian Center. Please come and join council members and their families for this event.
