On Sunday, May 26, 2024 the Silver Rose made a visit to Holy Redeemer Parish in Jenison, MI. Bishop Fulton Sheen Council #7487 brought Silver Rose to Holy Redeemer Parish from the Knights of Columbus State Convention on Mackinac Island. The beautiful service was well attended and the Honor Guard was present.
The tradition of the Silver Rose originated in Monterrey, Mexico in 1960, when Brother Knights there came up with the idea to run a rose to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The rose was chosen to commemorate Juan Diego and the miracle of the roses. Over time, this tradition evolved into the Silver Rose, with eight roses now traveling different North American routes that include Canada, every U.S. state, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, and Mexico.
This tradition not only honors Our Lady of Guadalupe but also symbolizes the Unity of the Knights of Columbus and reaffirms our dedication to the sanctity of human life.
