Knights of Colum­bus Call for National Unity, End to Racism

Supreme Knight Ander­son says path for­ward begins with prayer.

The Knights of Colum­bus has called for a novena – nine days of prayer – for national unity and an end to racism amid the unrest fol­low­ing the death of George Floyd.

We ask all peo­ple to come together in sol­i­dar­ity to forge a path for­ward — free of dis­crim­i­na­tion and hate — for our nation,” said Supreme Knight Carl Ander­son. “The Knights join Pope Fran­cis in urg­ing all to express their anger and cries for jus­tice in non-​violent ways to end the sin of racism.”

The novena is set to begin on Trin­ity Sun­day, June 7, which was cho­sen by the Knights as the day to start the novena because of its inher­ent theme of unity.
