Silver rose travels across diocese with Knights

PEARL – The Knights of Columbus in the Diocese of Jackson again hosted the Silver Rose for the month of September. The silver rose is a pro-life program sponsored by the Knights honoring our Lady of Guadalupe.
Knights in parishes across the diocese host rosaries and prayer services using the rose as a focal point. The rose made stops at numerous schools and parishes including Madison St. Joseph and St. Anthony as well as Jackson St. Richard schools, Pearl St. Jude and Madison St. Francis parishes.
The program started many years ago with one rose that traveled from Canada to Mexico.
In 2015, six roses have been making different journeys, most starting in Canada and making winding trips across many states where Knights’ councils host similar prayer services and rosaries.
The one that stops here starts its run in Manitoba, moving south through the central United States and along the Mississippi before turning to Texas.
The program ends on Dec. 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, when all the roses are presented in the Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico.
