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.
