To My Brother Knights All

Hopefully many of you have been wondering about whether there will be another March for Life in January 2021. The answer is yes, but in a different way. On Saturday, January 30, 2021, at 11:00 AM, there will be a “March for Life Car Rally”. It will start at the Utah State Capitol parking area and proceed down State Street to Sandy, UT. Approximate time to drive from the State Capitol to Sandy will be 2 hours

I ask that those attending this rally be at the State Capitol by 9:30 AM so that we can gather together in one area to organize our vehicles. The Knights, with their family and friends, will assemble together as one big group with our Knights of Columbus Sign in the first vehicle. Please try and car pool for the rally and decorate your vehicle with Pro-Life signs or other appropriate, non-offensive, signage. A suggestion is to have children in the Catechism classes make signs for the rally. Our support as Knights of Columbus for this March for Life Car Rally is paramount in support and protection of the unborn child.

Pro Life Utah will have flags for sale and all proceeds from the sales of these flags will help purchase the ultrasound machine that will go into the Ultrasound van. You can also give donations as well during this time. Radio Station K Talk, 1640 AM, will be broadcasting the guest speakers during the car rally.

Please try and get this information into your Parish Sunday bulletin. As more information is forthcoming from Pro Life Utah, I will pass it onto you.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 801-602-4405.

Notes from Faith in Action FAQ:
On April 6, 2018, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson announced the introduction of the Faith in Action program model.
Q: What happened to the substance Abuse Awareness Poster Contest?
A: While popular in some areas, this program had very low participation rates. As with all things, our programs must evolve to make room for other programs that have more involvement and engagement. With that in mind, the choice was made to remove this program as a Supreme-recommended program. However, this does not prevent councils from continuing to promote the program or its intent to our youth.
