The Supreme Office of the Knights of Columbus are promoting a novena to Blessed Michael McGivney beginning today. Please join in if you feel called.
(The Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network organizes a novena to Blessed McGivney each year, but this year we will do this in the lead up to his newly established feast day of August 13).
Pray the Blessed Michael McGivney Novena March 20-28
Knights, their families and others are encouraged to pray the Blessed Michael McGivney Novena from March 20 until March 28, concluding the day before the 139th anniversary of the founding of the Knights of Columbus. The novena includes daily reflections about the life and priestly virtues of the Order’s founder, Father Michael J. McGivney. Each day includes petitions invoking his intercession and concludes with the prayer for his canonization.
Daily recorded videos of the novena will be posted on the Knights’ official Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube accounts and can also be accessed on the Father Michael J. McGivney Guild website.

Just a reminder that tomorrow Friday, March 12
is the feast of our network’s patron, St. Gregory the Great. On that day, please
consider praying for his intercession for our network, and the growth of the
Latin Mass in the Knights of Columbus.
As noted from our website:
Our Patron is Saint Gregory the Great, who was Pope in the late sixth and early seventh centuries. He is known as the Father of Christian Worship because he made a general revision to the Mass, as celebrated in Rome at that time, bringing it into the form it retained for almost fourteen hundred years. This form, as codified by the Council of Trent, is sometimes referred to as the Tridentine or Traditional Latin Mass. St. Gregory thus provided us the Order of Mass with the prayers, antiphons and readings even in the more recent Ordinary Form. Furthermore, because of his association with Gregorian chant, he reflects the rich liturgical tradition of the Church.
To learn more about this great saint, please see Dom Prosper Gueranger’s entry for his feast day:
St. Gregory the Great, pray for us!
