It is now April. The month of the April is dedicated to the Holy Eucharist and devotion to the Holy Spirit. In honor of this, watch this video…
and then come to the pro life rosary and pro life idea breakfast.
Attention Knights for life:
We have a desire to unite together pro life minded Knights across the Assembly; therefore, the Blanchette Assembly 3044 pro life Knights will be gathering for breakfast and comrade to informally talk about pro life ideas. This will occur on April 16th ( 7:30 AM) at Denny’s in the Fox Valley shopping Mall. Following breakfast, we will proceed on to attend the Pro Life Rosary.
The Knights of Columbus (Council #1369) will conduct a pro life rosary beginning at 9:00 AM in front of the Planned Parenthood clinic located at 3051 E. New York Street in Aurora. This will be an ongoing monthly event, that will be held on the 3rd Saturday of the month. The rosary will take about 20-30 minutes. Afterward, you may optionally join the monthly protest. The protest will last until 10:30 am. By the grace of God, your mere presence and prayer could actually save a life. Achieve, at least, a partial indulgence! Parking is right next door behind the Blockbuster store. In Addition to this monthly event, there is also a weekly rosary every Tuesday afternoon (2:00 pm) at the same location. There is usually a priest or deacon in attendance for these services.

Attention: Knights for Life:
As you may already know, our Assembly 3044 will be leading the Holy Rosary on Good Friday in front of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora. I have coordinated this with Eric Sheidler and the Pro life action league. They will be leading the Stations of the cross. We will follow right after with the Rosary. I have informed the Diocese Pro Life office. They have published our event in their weekly news events email. I have also informed Relevant Radio. We are expecting a crowd of at least 400-500. That is how many showed up last year. I am working on getting a battery powered portable microphone to make it easier for the crowd to hear our Rosary. Kathy Durow has offered to lend me a system. She is the coordinator of the Adoration chapel at Sts. Peter and Paul. I will be evaluating the audio system very soon.
Right now I am in need of at least 5 brave Knights that would be willing to recite one of the 5 decades of the Holy Rosary. If we get more volunteers than the 5 needed, we can work in 5 teams to be heard very clearly. All that is needed is to recite the Our Father and 10 Hail Marys in public. Please send me an email or phone if you would like to participate. I will assign the decades to you by email. All you have to do is show up. It would be great to have one Knight from each council. This will be an awesome event!
