2024 Silver Rose Chair for Utah: Michael Leith.
Knights on Bikes might be able to provide escorts...don't forget to coordinate that!
Utah District Deputies, Grand Knights and Silver Rose Coordinators,
As you know, each year, from early March through mid-December, Silver Roses are stewarded by councils along routes from Canada to Mexico. This year the Rose will be in Utah from June 9 through July 6. Please review the attached letter detailing scheduling for 2024 and respond as necessary for scheduling your District/Council Silver Rose events.
Every stop the Silver Rose makes throughout the pilgrimage is a rosary-centered occasion for Knights, parishioners, and community members to pray for respect for life, for the spiritual renewal of each nation, and for the advancement of the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe. 
We encourage all Knights, their parishes and communities to participate in Silver Rose events.  Parish events can be anything from a simple basic service to a full service with music and a Knights of Columbus Honor Guard.  Please take advantage of this opportunity to be at the forefront of standing for the dignity of life in our society.
Vivat Jesus,
Michael Leith

What are the Knights of Columbus?

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Please contact us for more information about becoming a Knight!
