“Without my faith, I would be nothing. It has allowed me to be grateful for my life,” affirms Grand Knight Tom Peterson of St. Juan Diego Council 12175 in Seattle. Continuing to serve his community despite the challenges of having Lou Gehrig’s disease, Peterson gives a powerful witness to the dignity and intrinsic value of every human life. Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly has urged all Knights in the United States to likewise offer pro-life witness by participating in the 2023 March for Life in Washington, D.C.
 
Supreme Knight Urges Participation in March for Life

Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly invites Knights of Columbus and their families to join him at the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 20, 2023 — not only to celebrate the reversal of Roe v. Wade, but also to send a clear pro-life message to lawmakers and resist efforts to codify legal abortion in federal law. The supreme knight also encourages Knights across the United States to support and participate in pro-life events at the state level: “Every Knight has a part to play, and every council should get involved.” WATCH NOW | MORE RESOURCES
