Throughout the year, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops (FlaCCB), a Diocesan Respect Life Director, or the KofC Supreme Council might email an “Action Alert” – a call for Knights to act in our civil duties to contact our Senators or House Representatives and let them know our position on pro- life bills. It is important that we, as citizens, do this in charity, unity, and fraternity, to speak for the voiceless unborn. Please act as soon as you receive the e-mail and forward it to your Council’s Brother Knights, to family and friends.
