National Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage in Washington, DC - 17 September 2022

From our friends at the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny:

Dear Friends,

Please consider making plans to attend this event in Washington and Arlington,  to show our support for our friends in the Washington area and to protest  recent cancellations of  the Traditional Mass:

Join us on Saturday September 17, 2022 at 9 AM for the National Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage. 

We will mark the 15th anniversary of Benedict XVI’s liberation of the Traditional Latin Mass, and make a public act of sorrow/support of what we will be losing as the Diocese of Arlington and Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. impose devastating new restrictions on the celebration of the TLM. 

The Arlington Diocese restrictions go into effect on September 8, while the Washington Archdiocese’s draconian implementation of the papal decree starts 13 days later on the 21st.
The pilgrimage will begin at 9 AM on Saturday, September 17 at the Cathedral of Saint Thomas More in Arlington, VA, will end when we reach St. Matthew’s Cathedral in DC, and should take about two hours. 
For updates, we now have an instagram, twitter, and Facebook page (all of which can be found @tlmpilgrimage on the respective apps), and we now have a website being 
Please share, as we want this to be as large as possible for such an occasion.

Votive Mass for Defense of the Church this Friday August 26

Brother Knights,

With a widespread communist persecution breaking out against the Church in Nicaragua (and elsewhere), we wanted to encourage Knights, Councils and others in our network to consider asking their priests to offer a votive “Mass for the Defense of the Churchthis Friday August 26.

Since this Friday August 26 is a Feria day, a votive Mass (1962) can be offered for just these important situations and intentions.  The vestments are traditionally purple/violet and the Mass would not displace the actual intention scheduled at the parish for that Mass.

As many know, the Knights have long championed the Church’s liberty and were key in helping to support the Mexican Catholics during Calles’ persecution in the 1920s – one that gave many martyrs including six Knights:

If your priest is able to offer this votive Traditional Latin Mass (found in the 1962 Missal), the laity propers can be found at this parish’s website:

Additional upcoming Feria days to offer Masses are September 6, 7, and 13, 20 and 26.

Blessed Michael McGivney and the Mexican martyrs, pray for us!

Vivat Jesus!

Second Feast of Bl. Michael McGivney

Today, Saturday August 13, is the feast day of Knights founder, Blessed Michael McGivney. 

His feast day falls between his date of birth, August 12, 1852, and his date of death, August 14, 1890. 

We encourage Knights to try and attend a Traditional Latin Mass today. Although he is not on the 1962 calendar, August 13 is a ferial day and a votive Mass for Any Necessity can be offered for Blessed Michael's canonization. 

To learn more about Blessed Michael, the Knights of Columbus has set up a resource page:

Annual Novena to Bl. McGivney Begins Tomorrow August 4 - August 12

Brother Knights,

Please join us for our annual novena for Blessed Michael McGivney’s canonization, the founder of the Knights of Columbus. The novena begins Thursday August 4 and it concludes Friday August 12, the day prior to his new feast day of August 13th. 

Our suggested intention is for the protection of the Traditional Latin Mass, the Mass of Bl. McGivney.

Additionally, in last summer's edition of Columbia, the Supreme Chaplain encouraged Knights to attend Mass on that day (even if his feast is not celebrated at Mass). We would add to that and encourage members of our network to try and attend a Traditional Latin Mass on that day. 

Novena prayer is below. 


2022 Novena to Blessed Michael McGivney - August 4 – 12 (Feast day August 13)


God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of  the  widow  and  orphan,  you  called  your  priest, Blessed  Michael  McGivney,  to  be  an  apostle  of Christian  family  life  and  to  lead  the  young  to  the generous  service  of  their  neighbor. 

Through  the example of his life and virtue, may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of  charity  and  building  up  his  Body  which  is  the Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast.  

We   humbly   ask   that   you   glorify   Blessed Michael McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request).Through Christ our Lord. Amen

Intention: Protection and growth of the Traditional Latin Mass within the Church and throughout the Knights of Columbus



Deus, pater noster, protector pauperum atque defensor viduarum et orphanorum: vocasti sacerdotem tuum, beatum Michaelem McGivney, familiari vitae christianae apostolum, iuvenibusque ducem ad adiuvandum proximum. Per exemplum vitae virtutisque eius, Filium tuum propius sequamur, Iesum Christum, ut mandatum caritatis perficiamus ad corroborandum corpus Eius quod est Ecclesia.

Fiat nobis inspirationi famulus tuus ut confidentes tuae caritati pergamus curare indigentes et incuria captos.  Humiliter petimus ut inter caelites connumeretur beatus Michael McGivney presbyter in terra secundum voluntatem tuam. Concede propitius gratiam hanc ______(pete quod desideras)  per Christum Dominum Nostrum. Amen.

Introducing: How to Build Caskets for Stillborns and Miscarried Babies

Brother Knights,

Many families - including Knights - have been affected by a stillborn or miscarriage. It is a difficult, sorrowful, and often traumatic time for the parents and is only compounded by having to make for the funeral arrangements, including the purchase of a small casket.

Several Knights in our Network have also suffered in these circumstances and were inspired to act to help lessen the burden on other families who experience a stillborn or miscarriage.

After reading a January 2019 Knights of Columbus online article, several Knights of the Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network decided to develop a manual on how Knights or others (with little woodworking experience) can build small and dignified caskets and provide them free of charge to parents who recently suffered from a stillborn birth or miscarriage.

This was a collaborative project of Knights across several councils within our Network working together - demonstrating the potential of being a member of the Traditional Knights Latin Mass Network. This also ties into our mission as many parents of babies who are stillborn or miscarried have requested a Mass of the Angels.  This is a special Mass which can be said in the Traditional Latin Rite for babies who died with the grace of baptism.

To learn more see link below.

Manual: How to Build a Casket for a Stillborn or Miscarried Baby

Challenge: We also challenge Knights to use the manual and try to build one. 

The manual can also be found on our webpage:
