Watch a New Flim

The True Story of Christopher Columbus is a thorough examination of the life and legacy of the fearless discoverer of America. Produced by the Knights of Columbus and narrated by actor Chazz Palminteri, this film provides insight into Christopher Columbus' remarkable genius as a sea navigator as well as his deep desire to bring all nations to Christ.  If you missed Sunday night’s premiere on EWTN, you can now watch this documentary at KofC.org/Columbus and on our YouTube channel.

Through expert interviews and archival footage, we look at the origins of Columbus Day and the symbolic role that Columbus has for Catholic immigrants, especially Italian Americans. Finally, the film addresses the current indictments against Christopher Columbus with boldness and exposes the motives behind the attacks of revisionist historians.

“Courage and Conviction” shows why Christopher Columbus remains not only a man worthy of admiration, but a noble icon of what it means to be a Catholic and an American.

NOVENA FOR THE CAUSE OF LIFE - OCTOBER 4-12

The defense of life and the promotion of human dignity in every stage and condition are preeminent concerns of the Knights of Columbus and the entire Church.

From October 4-12, during Respect Life Month, Knights are called to join all Catholics in prayer with Pope Francis for an end to abortion, euthanasia and the many social ills that bring illness, broken families, unhappiness and premature death, especially for the most vulnerable.  We invite you and your family to join brother Knights and fellow Catholics around the world in a Novena for the Cause of Life beginning on Sunday, Oct. 4, and ending on Monday, Oct. 12.

Throughout these nine days, we will pray for an end to abortion, euthanasia and other social ills that result in broken families and unhappiness, and which threaten the most vulnerable. The novena calls upon the intercession of Our Lady and draws upon unique quotes from the teachings of Pope Francis regarding the sanctity of all human life.

During each unique day of the novena, you can reflect on a quote selected from the teaching of Pope Francis on the sanctity of life, pray a decade of the rosary, and conclude with St. John Paul II’s prayer from Evangelium Vitae. By reflecting on the teachings of Pope Francis and calling upon the help of Our Lady for 9 days, we can deepen our commitment to the Gospel of Life and support the most vulnerable through prayer. The prayers and reflection for the novena can be found at this link.
