On Divine Mercy Sunday, a celebration and Silver Rose prayer service was held in District 101, hosted by St. Hubert Council 11658 in Harrison Township. The Silver Rose was escorted to St. Hubert parish by State Faith Director/Silver Rose Director Bob “Ace” Bagley and the Knights on Bikes. Many Brother Knights and 4th Degree Color Corps members joined the St. Hubert parishioners for a beautiful and solemn Mass, and stayed for the Silver Rose prayer service.

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.
