As Knights of Columbus, we are called to do something to reverse the trend toward the culture of death. All of us have a duty to defend life at all stages and build a culture of life – and we have. By advocating a constant pro-life message, by supporting pregnancy centers and alternatives to abortion, and by educating our fellow citizens on the necessity of protecting vulnerable human life, our impact is being felt.

What we choose to do, or not do, about abortion, euthanasia, human cloning and embryonic research impacts lives for generations to come.

At Holy Name of Jesus Council 14081 we actively support Morning Star Pregnancy Centers both financially and with our time. Every year since our inception we have become a sponsor for Morning Star’s Annual Fund Raising Banquet. This year the banquet will be held on Thursday, April 22nd in the ballroom of the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey. If you have never attended one of these banquets or haven’t come in several years — you won’t want to miss this one. You will be inspired and challenged.

We also support Morning Star’s Annual Walk for Life project each year in October by cooking pancakes and sausage for all the walkers.

Underway presently and throughout lent is the 40 Days for Life Campaign. This is a pro-life project designed to bring together the faithful in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting and community outreach. Go to and click Vigil Schedule.

Our faith tells us that all human life is sacred, from conception to natural death.

A people of Life and for Life
