Thank you for sending us your news. We have included a report AND/OR photo of the project in the October update of the Knights in Action web page, posted at http://www.kofc.org/knightsinaction. The report will appear online only; it will be visible on the Knights in Action homepage for approximately on month, and filed for publication in the magazine at a later date. Due to the volume of reports received and the limited number of pages available to us monthly in the print edition of the magazine, it will likely be several months before it appears in print. Thanks again.

This Aug. 15, on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Knights around the world are encouraged to pray for their respective countries as part of an Orderwide Day of Prayer for Peace and Reconciliation.
Supreme Knight Carl Anderson called for the Aug. 15 observance during the 135th Supreme Convention in St. Louis. Citing the recent increase in political violence, including the shooting of members of Congress last June on a baseball field outside of Washington, D.C., he said:
“Violence and the rhetoric of violence have no place as a style of politics in America or any other country. … I call upon all my brother Knights and their families to again seek the intercession of Mary, Queen of Peace.”
