PRO-LIFE ACE WINGS

As Practical Practicing Catholic Gentlemen, we are called upon to be Pro-Life from conception to natural death. This must include those who are forgotten and left to die. Since it is now legal in California to kill a baby in the womb and the law allows assisted suicide, to obtain the ACE Wings Award one must complete items that deal with our most vulnerable from life’s beginning to its natural end. Volunteering for Special Olympic events is included because many abortions are performed once it is discovered that the baby might have Down Syndrome, or some other defect. People who work in the Special Olympics are also to be commended.
Saying the Rosary privately for Pro-Life, or offering up a private intention at Mass, does not qualify for the ACE Wings Award. If a member requests a set of wings for a qualified spouse, council is billed (includes shipping) for the wings. Forms may be submitted at any time during the Fraternal Year.
ACE Wings are to be presented to the recipient by the District Deputy, Grand Knight, or if necessary, by mail. Anyone earning the ACE Wings Award is encouraged to continue to support Pro-Life events annually. However, only one ACE Wing Award can ever be awarded to a person in their lifetime.
Note: Council may award only one award to a Pro-Life individual in the community per year. If the Recipient is not a Knight leave the member number blank. Awards will be sent to the District Deputy for presentation to the Recipient
