The protection of life is a sustained prayer intention of the Catholic Church, and in particular of the Knights of Columbus. Knights remain firmly committed to defending the right to life of every human being – from the moment of conception to natural death.

In response to Governor Pritzker's Abortion Bill, the U.S. Senate's failure to pass the Born Alive Protection Act, and bolster this important cause, Fr. Boecker Council 6090 will promote and co-sponsor a Novena, nine days of sustained prayer, to build up a culture of life in our parishes, homes and wider community. This Novena for Life to begin Sunday March 3rd. All members of the community are welcome to join us.

In keeping with our new programming model, "Faith in Action", Fr. Beocker Council will list all ministries which support this effort as a partners on our website and Facebook posts. Just respond with any link your ministry would like to use. Just message us.

In order to keep this as simple as possible, we will post the Novena each day on our council's website, and Facebook page, and invite everyone to follow along. We will also email you a daily reminder, which you may forward to your email lists and prayer chains. Just message us.

We are hoping to spread the word over email chains from each parish ministry, and word of mouth.
