State Knights’ Pilgrimage Honoring Mothers and Family Life
OCTOBER 1, 2023
The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church Knights of Columbus Council #10381 is hosting the Missouri State Council Knights of Columbus Pilgrimage honoring mothers and family life at the Mothers’ Shrine on October 1, 2023.
Respect Life Sunday
Each October the Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life.
We recognize that respecting life begins with respecting all mothers. During our celebration, the Mothers’ Shrine will unveil the newly engraved names on our Mothers’ Wall of Life. Honor the loved ones in your life by submitting an engraving reservation before August 15, 2023.
All Knights of Columbus are invited along with mothers, children and anyone who is interested in attending! Members of the Fourth Degree Honor Guard are invited to participate (new regalia only).
The Knights will host a luncheon as part of this pilgrimage, and there is a $12 per person reservation payment required to the Knights.
The Mothers’ Shrine looks forward to hosting the Missouri State Council Knights of Columbus and all those who wish to participate in this Pilgrimage Honoring Mothers and Family Life!
