Right to Life Upcoming Events 1/14/2019 - 1/20/2019
As Knights we have always supported Respect Life issues. This month is a month where we can show our support with the outward signs of our inward convictions by participation. Roe vs. Wade (1973) Supreme Court decision change our country by making abortions legal. It did not make abortions right or moral. Our progressive society has made their best efforts to not only make us think that abortion is normal, right and moral but that the science showing when life begins is debatable. It is not. Life begins at conception, that’s the truth of it.
So as Knights, with our Families, let us go out into the world and be visible outward signs of our full support for this Respect Life Issue, the ending of abortion. You have heard it said before, but I will say it again ‘without the right to life there are no other rights.’

Mass for Life Sunday 1/20/2019 Noon at the Robinson Center Performance Theater. Our Bishop Anthony B. Taylor will be the presider. The Eucharistic Procession ends in front of the Robinson. Attending Mass with the intention being for Life cannot get a greater outward sign.
Fifth Outward Sign
Attending the March for Life on Sunday 1/20/2019 at 2 P.M. The pre-march gathering area is the far west parking lot from the State Capitol (Wolfe St. and W. Capitol Ave.). The march is short, from the west parking lot to the front of the capitol building (about ¼ of a mile). Politicians, Pastors, and Guest Speaker will give us some encouragement. Respect Life Arkansas will pass a bucket for donations. The March and the Speakers will take about 1 Hour to 1 ½ Hours.
Brothers Knights, here are five great opportunities for you and your families to give witness as outward signs of your inward convictions. Please do one, two or all five. See you there.
