Dear Brother Knight,

As you may know, on December. 1 the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health concerning a law in Mississippi which bans abortion at 15 weeks. In taking this case, the Supreme Court will determine whether states can have more freedom to limit abortion and not be bound by the judicial edicts which have governed abortion laws for nearly 50 years.

As men and families of faith, we are called to offer prayers for the attorneys presenting this case, for the justices who will decide it, and for our country, which will be impacted by it. The bishops of the United States, together with leaders of other Christian communities, have launched the Pray for Dobbs initiative.

On November 18, there will be a virtual National Prayer Event at 8 P.M. EST, and we urge all Knights and their families to sign up. By doing so, you can join in prayerful solidarity with Christians across the United States. You will also have the opportunity to hear about additional opportunities for prayer and reflection.

Please join us in prayer and fasting for the unborn, for a positive result in the Dobbs case, and for our country.


Knights of Columbus Supreme Council
