October 2017

My Brothers,                      [Click HERE to download the newest application/registration for the 2018 March For Life - with REVISED cutoff dates]

A reminder: It is necessary for our Indiana State Knights of Columbus Ultrasound Project to receive a $250.00 donation per year from EVERY council in order to keep up with supplying all the Pregnant Care Centers with LIFE-SAVING machines. With every baby saved, a woman is also saved from a LIFETIME of grief and guilt. It is a “win-win” situation. We understand the difficulty of raising that much money. Some councils are able to give more. Do your best to give something! We just dedicated our most recent machine to Knox which brings the Indiana total to around 18!

Have you signed-up for the trip to the National March for Life? Check the link above or put your DD to work getting you a registration form for our 9th Indiana K of C. Don’t take my word for it, ask our State Officers - all of whom have gone with us in the past - including S.D. Marty McCoy, PSD Steve Ziemba, Paul Zielinski, Craig Hanusin, Scott Schutte and Bob (No relation) Zielinski. Two State Wardens have gone with us also, Ron Doxsee and Tim Brown. Get your reservation in as soon as possible!

October is Pro Life month and there are a myriad of things that your council can do to support our programs. Check the website for ideas. 

Roses can be purchased in quantities, usually at a discount price, and given-away after Mass or at businesses and simply asking for any donation. Check your local Right to Life people for the location of the Life Chain and join-in. Have your council choose a day to stand vigil and pray at an abortion facility during the National 40 DAYS FOR LIFE. No abortion facility nearby? Then stand vigil and pray at a church, or a memorial or even a town square so that you can bring attention to the public. Do you like to ride? How about “Biking for Babies”? Contact Mater Dei Council in Indy and ride a leg of their journey with them or commit to a donation for their effort. There is a National Rosary effort to be conducted on October 14th at 12 noon in each respective time zone. Organize that rosary and dedicate it to all life issues: abortion, euthanasia, cloning, capital punishment, infant stem-cell research, suicide, and the fastest growing crime in our nation, human sex-trafficking.

There is plenty for us to do! Check the website. Choose an activity and also, PRAY.

Vivat Jesus!
