September Culture of Life, by S.K. Jeffrey Patino

Monday, September 29, 2014

Greetings Brother Knights,

One of our newest additions to your council's Culture of Life awareness programs.

This animated feature is a wonderful way to share the value of life with our little ones. Thanks to the vision of our Southern California brothers we now have the opportunity to share this entertaining, and very well done family adventure of microscopic proportions. We will help you learn how you can start your own council's value of life project with Skiff & AJ.

The goal of the value of Life project is to place one of these DVD's into the hands of every Kindergarten through third grade Catholic student in the state. Now that is an ambitious plan! We think that when you see this animated production you will agree with us. That this is an amazing opportunity to share God's gift of life with our little ones, in a way that speaks to them. Through their favorite thing to do, watch cartoons. When you see this animated feature you will fall in love with it! not just because it really is a well done animated adventure, but because from the very first moments you will see the potential for this program at many levels. You will be able to see how this great DVD will be able to teach young children the true value of Life. ( adults too.)

Public Responds to Knights' Initiative and Add $1 Million to Christian Refugee Relief Fund

Monday, September 22, 2014

Knights' twin efforts to help those suffering religious persecution in Iraq includes $2 million in aid and a prayer campaign for peace.

In just over three weeks, the Knights of Columbus Christian Refugee Relief initiative has raised more than $1 million in public donations for those suffering persecution in Iraq and the surrounding region. Combined with the $1 million donated by the Order, the fund now stands at more than $2 million, which will be distributed to support humanitarian assistance to refugees fleeing from the ongoing persecution.

Expanding its support for persecuted Christians — and those from other religious minorities in Iraq — the K of C is also adding a spiritual dimension to its response to the humanitarian crisis, urging Knights and their families, as well as the public, to recite the “Prayer for Those Persecuted in Iraq,” written by Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore.

The prayer, available at https://www.kofc.org/en/resources/communications/prayerforiraq.html, asks for a spirit of “perseverance and courage” for those under attack, and asks the “God of all the nations” to “look with mercy on your servants in Iraq who are persecuted for their faith.” It pleads that wisdom may be given to “leaders of nations to work for peace among all peoples.”
