KOC to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe with Silver Rose


CRANSTON — The Knights of Columbus of Rhode Island will participate in a North American effort paying special tribute to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, through the Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose-One Life, One Rose Program. The effort involves the journey of five Silver Roses from Ontario, Canada, through the United States to Monterrey, Mexico. The journey for one of the silver roses includes stops in Rhode Island.

One of the roses will tour Rhode Island today through Nov. 23. The journey will begin at La Salette Shrine in Attleboro, Mass., today at 2 p.m., when the Massachusetts Knights of Columbus will transfer the rose to their Rhode Island colleagues during an afternoon of praying the rosary for life.

A Silver Rose prayer service will be held at several parishes and halls across the Diocese of Providence during the following six weeks, until the Knights turn over the rose to their Connecticut colleagues during a ceremony at Ender’s Island in Mystic on Nov. 23.

“Through the Silver Rose Program, the Knights of Rhode Island show our support for the church and its bishops and priests as we pray for the continued strength to do so in these troubled times,” said James Gilcreast Jr., state deputy, chief executive of the Knights of Columbus of Rhode Island. “The Silver Rose also symbolizes our commitment to restoring respect for the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death.”

“The ‘Running of the Rose’ is a perfect program for the Knights of Columbus,” said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson. “Through it we honor not only Our Lady of Guadalupe and express the unity of the Order, but we also reaffirm the Order’s dedication to the sanctity of human life. It is to the Blessed Mother that we turn in prayer as we work to end the Culture of Death that grips our society.”

The local Silver Rose prayer service schedule is as follows:

Sunday, Oct. 20, at the Immaculate Conception Church, 111 High St., Westerly, 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.

Saturday, Nov. 23, St. Edmund’s Retreat Center, 1 Ender’s Island, Mystic, 4 p.m.

Anyone interested in booking a Silver Rose prayer service or who would like additional information about any scheduled prayer service should contact Mike Krzywonos, Culture of Life director, R.I. Knights of Columbus, at 401-474-2285 or by email at mikrzywonos@gmail.com.
