Veterans Day and Remembrance Day are opportunities to remember the sacrifices made by each and every member of the American Armed Forces and Canadian Armed Services — including so many brother Knights — who have served or who are serving now and who bear the wounds of war.
To these brave men and women we say thank you for your service. Please join us in a moment of silence to pray for each of them, especially those wounded and ill warriors still suffering for our freedom.
This Veterans Day we also remember our brother Knights who have earned the Medal of Honor for their heroic bravery while serving in the armed forces. In addition, we continue to support veterans through our Warriors to Lourdes program, sponsored in partnership with the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA.

Mary, Immaculate Virgin, Our Mother,
please pray to your Son, Our Lord,
for our warriors and our veterans,
for our countries and our continued freedom. Amen.

Learn how to place your council at the center of your parish life by participating in the next fraternal training webinar.
Our upcoming webinar, which will be conducted on Wednesday, April 8, at 8 p.m. Eastern time, will focus on ways to develop faith-based initiatives that are fueled by the charity, faith and fraternity of your council.
The webinar will focus on:
- Centering faith-based council programs in your parish
- Collaborating with your pastor
Opening our programs to our larger parish community is important, as it both engages current members and attracts new members of multiple age groups. As members of the world’s largest Catholic fraternal and family organization, we have a responsibility to dedicate our time, talent and resources to strengthening families and making our parishes beacons of the new evangelization.
