Friday October 27 - Day of Fasting for the Holy Land & Upcoming Retreats

Brother Knights,

Supreme Knight Kelly is encouraging all Knights to participate in a day of prayer and fasting Friday October 27 to help bring peace to the Holy Land. We share his message below:

Brother Knights,

As the conflict in the Holy Land continues to escalate, Pope Francis has called on all Christians throughout the world to unite in prayer, fasting and penance to help bring about peace. In his weekly message, the Holy Father implored those in the Holy Land to, “Lay down weapons and heed the cries for peace from the poor, the people, and the innocent children.”

I urge all Knights of Columbus and their families to join me in answering our Holy Father’s call on Friday, October 27. In addition to your own prayerful intentions, an hour of prayer will convene at 6 pm (Rome time) in St. Peter’s Square on Friday for peace in the world.

Together in prayer, we can ask for Christ’s divine mercy to bring resolution to this conflict.


Patrick E. Kelly

Supreme Knight
