The protection of all of those who participate in the annual March, as well as the many law enforcement personnel and others who work tirelessly each year to ensure a safe and peaceful event, is a top priority of the March for Life. In light of the fact that we are in the midst of a pandemic that may be peaking, and in view of the heightened pressures that law enforcement officers and others are currently facing in and around the Capitol, this year’s March for Life will look different.
The annual rally will take place virtually and we are asking all participants to stay home and to join the March virtually. We will invite a small group of pro-life leaders from across the country to march in Washington, DC this year. These leaders will represent pro-life Americans everywhere who, each in their own unique ways, work to make abortion unthinkable and build a culture where every human life is valued and protected.
We are profoundly grateful for the countless women, men, and families who sacrifice to come out in such great numbers each year as a witness for life – and we look forward to being together in person next year. As for this year’s march, we look forward to being with you virtually.

The Novena begins on today, September 11 and ends on November 3, Election Day. Our country needs prayers… let us flood Heaven and beg the Lord to have mercy on our country. Pray the rosary or the divine mercy chaplet every day until the election for God’s will be done.
We are sad to report our dear Field Agent, SK Gregory Rapelje retired from his office with Supreme Council as the Field Agent for North-West Wayne County.
Greg has been a close from of our council since before we moved to St. Mary, Cause of Our Joy! We will miss him as our Field Agent, but we look forward to spending more time with him as our brother Knight!
The K of C has announced that it gave $185.7 million to charity and donated 76.7 million hours of hands-on service in 2018. Contained in the annual fraternal survey, it demonstrates once again that charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus.
“Regardless of how or who the Knights serve, it’s the chance to help those who are unable to help themselves and to be of assistance to the sick or disabled that is at the heart of what being a Knight is all about,” said Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.
The Knights’ charitable giving comes from three sources: direct fundraising, the funds raised by thousands of local Knights councils in their communities and from the Knights’ insurance operations.
We also have a great youth program and a religious education department! If you’re looking for a church that’s a welcoming and warm would love to have you join our parish family! And we are always looking for strong Catholic men to join the Knights of Columbus! We have a small parish council, but would love to welcome you to it! Contact us today!
We will be after EVERY Mass on Saturday and Sunday with petitions. Almost every parish and KofC council in Michigan will be collecting signatures. All we have to do is collect 400,000 signatures and it will force this bill back to the Michigan House and Senate where they have already approved it. The governor will not be able to veto it. Together we can do this and end this barbaric practice.
