A Silver Rose on a nine-month pilgrimage will be the centerpiece of a special prayer service to be held at St Bernadette on October 17th & 18th, 2019. This program is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe and express both international unity and dedication to the sanctity of human life.
The journey of the Silver Rose begins each year in March and ends on December 12th, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. During that time, Silver Rose travel from town to town along eight routes throughout North America. We are fortunate to host the Silver Rose in October. Several of those routes begin in Canada and end in Mexico. One route ends in Washington, D.C., and another ends at St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, CT, where the Knights of Columbus was founded.
All members of the parish community are encouraged to join the Knights of Columbus to pray for a civilization of love and a culture of life in our own country and throughout the world. Additional details regarding the prayer service will be provided in upcoming bulletins.
