Welcome (Respect Life)

RESPECT LIFE

This important suite of services and programs show the strength and solidarity of all Missouri Knights of Columbus and our role as Pro-Life leaders.  Each one is important for the forwarding of the cause.  Check out each of the programs below.

 


Meet Life Campaign

The mission of the "Meet Life" campaign is to reduce abortions in Missouri through the placement of ultrasound technology in local Pregnancy Centers along with mass media advertising to direct women to those centers. These efforts would provide opportunities for mothers experiencing unplanned pregnancies to bond with their unborn babies and encourage them to carry their babies to term.

To find out more information about this incredible program, please visit the following website:

So, how are we progressing towards this amazing goal?

One of the easiest fund raising opportunities for this program is a baby bottle campaign.  For more information, click here for more information on how your Council can do this.


Roses for Life

The symbol of Life - The Rose!

By distributing Roses and collecting signatures & donations, the Missouri Knights show their strong Pro-Life committment. The signatures are sent to the local/state/US legislators to remind them to stay (or convert to) pro-life. The program is held in January of each year, usually on the Sunday nearest the Jan 23 Roe-V-Wade decision.

P.A.L. Requirements

Written by Jeff Slama. Posted in P.A.L. Requirements

Pro-Life Award Pin Requirements:

To be Pro-Life, we must be Pro-Life, from conception to natural death, so we must remember those who have been forgotten and left to die, thus the visits to Hospice and Nursing Homes, etc. Four items must be for the unborn, plus one or more for the Living. So many abortions are performed when tests indicate Down Syndrome, or some other defect that the work of those in the Special Olympics must be commended.

Forms may be submitted at any time in the fraternal year.

P.A.L. Award Pins, whenever possible, will be sent to your District Deputy for presentation. While we encourage ALL to support the Pro-Life Work, only one pin will be presented per person. This form is available on the Missouri State Council Web Site: MOKofC.org.

Private Pro-Life events, such as saying the rosary or offering a private Mass Intention are NOT to be counted.

All Applications must include participation in five (5) Pro-Life activities in a 12 month period. Four out of these 5 must have to do with the unborn, such as:

  • Pro-Life Masses
  • Pro-Life Counseling
  • Pro-Life Parades
  • Volunteer Work at a Women’s Center
  • Pro-Life Rosaries
  • March for Life
  • Pro-Life Awards Dinners
  • Run for Life
  • Pro-Life Fund Raising
  • Private Donations to Vitae Caring Foundation

The fifth qualifier can either be one of the above or can be an activity such as Special Olympics, Hospice, entertainment for Nursing or Veterans Homes, Prison Concern Activities, etc.
