One Life, One Rose
Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose Program
For the past 68 years, Silver Roses have traveled throughout Mexico, Canada, and the United States sponsored by the Knights to celebrate the Culture of Life to show respect and support for all people, from conception to natural death. Silver Roses on pilgrimage are then brought together following each pilgrimage to form a Spiritual Bouquet for the Blessed Virgin Mary at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico.
Our Lady of Grace Parish has been part of this tradition since 2014 each Thanksgiving and the following day, sponsored by our parish council. Please join us in praying to Our Lady to strengthen our efforts to restore The Culture of Life in our society. This year the Silver Roses will be on display before the 9:00 am Mass Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 22 as well as the following day, Friday November 23. A decade of the rosary will be prayed after communion followed by the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
For the second consecutive October, Knights at OLG have raised over $1,200.00 for those with Intellectual Disabilities. If you haven’t had a chance to make your donation to the our “Tootsie Roll Drive” as it’s known, contact Terry Morgan at 201-913-7225 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org, to learn how 100% of donations go directly to Helping People with Intellectual Disabilities locally, or your donations may be placed in the collection basket in a clearly marked envelope KOFC/Tootsie Roll Drive.
