“Catholics must be committed to the defense of life in all its stages and in every condition”
(St. John Paul II, 1995).
The urgency of the threat to a culture of life in our world cannot be misunderstood. The Knights of Columbus vigorously defends the dignity of each human being at every stage of life. Councils and parishes can work to build a culture of life and a civilization of love through this important program.
Knights of Columbus Programs
Novena for Life
The protection of life is a sustained prayer intention of the 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. To commemorate and bolster this important cause, councils will promote a novena, nine days of sustained prayer, to build up a culture of life in our parishes, homes and wider community.
Celebrate the intrinsic worth and dignity of every single human being through the Special Olympics. Knights of Columbus councils can work with Special Olympics affiliates to determine how best to fund, sponsor or volunteer for events in the local community.
March for Life
The Knights of Columbus encourages others to choose life through public support of the pro-life cause. Knights can organize and participate in local, state, and regional Marches for Life and/or organize participation in bus trips to the national March in Washington, D.C.
