Silver Rose

The Silver Rose program is now continuing as scheduled. Councils should continue to abide by any Local, Civil or Diocesan guidelines currently in place. Participating Councils should contact the appropriate District or State leadership, such as the State Community Director, for their Jurisdiction’s route details and guidelines.

A Higher Purpose

Share the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe and promote respect for life by participating in this meaningful pilgrimage. The Silver Rose program demonstrates the unity between Knights of Columbus in Canada, the United States and Mexico, through a series of prayer services promoting the dignity of all human life and honoring Our Lady.

Each year, from early March through mid-December, Silver Roses are stewarded by Knights of Columbus councils along routes from Canada to Mexico. Every stop the Silver Rose makes throughout the pilgrimage is a rosary-centered occasion for Knights, parishioners and community members to pray for respect for life, for the spiritual renewal of each nation, and for the advancement of the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

A Message From State Community Director Ken Prokop Regarding the Silver Rose Program

Worthy DD's and Contact Person,  

       The Silver Rose Route is about to begin in our State. IT is very important that the route stays on schedule as presented. There are NO extra days in the schedule. Councils may have more than one service if necessary {English, Spanish}.

       Please fill out the Log sheet after each Service. I'm requesting that you text me at 402-369-0471 so that I can make sure of its current location. The Prayer Service Booklets need to stay with the Silver Rose as it travels to each location. There are NO extra booklets. You may go to the Supreme website and find/print it ahead of your service. You may also click the button below to download the PDF from our website.

       Lastly please understand that the day/days that are assigned to your District or Council are necessary to move the Silver Rose across our Great State to minimize long travel times. It will be handed off to Kansas on the 12th of Sept. south of Hebron, NE.
