News for Knights of Columbus
VOLUME 41 │ NUMBER 7 │ FEB. 14, 2023
Many stories and legends surround St. Valentine, but Catholic tradition has been consistent about at least one thing: The 3rd-century Roman saint whose feast became a day to celebrate romantic love was martyred for the faith. Today, in the face of a sometimes contrary, even hostile, culture, the Knights of Columbus continues to support Catholic spouses in their vocation and proclaim God’s beautiful plan for married love.
A Celebration of Married Love

Knights of Columbus throughout Poland and their wives gathered in Skaržysko-Kamienna for “Husband and Wife Day,” an annual event that brings married couples together to pray, renew their vows and meet other Catholic couples. “The work we do through the Knights of Columbus and our willingness to serve others translate into how we live our family and marital lives,” said Krzysztof Zuba, state deputy of Poland. “We pray that our marriages will be stronger, happier and everlasting.” WATCH NOW

Rebuilding With ‘Radical Love’After vandals attacked the Women’s Care Center in Peoria, Illinois, in May 2021, the pregnancy resource center needed immediate assistance. Itslobby was incinerated, its baby supplies lost, and its ultrasound machine damaged by heat and smoke. St. Clement Council 12407 in Dunlap came to the rescue with tens of thousands of dollars in donations, as well as hands-on help. “All I can say is we would not be here without the Knights of Columbus,” said Anne Kube, president of the center’s board of directors. “They have been our ‘Knights in shining armor.’” READ MORE To learn more about the Order’s initiative to support pregnancy care centers, visit kofc.org/ASAP.

‘Not for Sale’

To combat the scourge of human trafficking, the Knights of Columbus has partnered with Arise, an organization that provides care, safety and education for victims of slavery around the world, offering them an opportunity for healing and hope. In 2020, Arise opened an office in the Philippines, where an estimated 784,000 people are victims of trafficking — including 100,000 children. WATCH NOW
