Silver Rose Ceremony 2018 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham, PA

Local KofC Council #15590 secured the rose for a stop at Our Lady of Guadalupe (OLG) parish in Buckingham, PA and a Silver Rose ceremony was held on September 8th, 2018. The Knights and local Squire Circle 5704 participated in the ceremony including a procession of the Rose to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It was an opportunity to venerate the Virgin Mary, show respect for human life and be a sign of unity among the fraternal order of the Knights.

The event was attended by approximately 50 parishioners and presided over by Deacon Alessandro Giardini who also gave the homily. Many attendees said it was a moving and meaningful event with an opportunity for individual prayer over the rose afterward. They look forward to another Silver Rose Ceremony should OLG have the good fortune to be selected again in the future.
