Fr. Lowry, St. Edward Catholic Church pastor, leads knights and community members in prayers during the Chain of Life March at the Henderson County Courthouse. Now more than ever we need to be united in prayer to end abortions.
As councils in District 131 are make plans for pro-life activities during the Lenten season, it is also time to reflect on all the recent activities and acknowledge the outstanding support from the council priests. Fr. Bowlin, Council 8806 in Gun Barrel City, led Silver Rose services in the St. Jude parish and continues to employ the intersession of our Blessed Mother to end abortions. After recovering from the COVID virus, one of Fr. Jesudoss’s first public activities was to lead the parish of St. Therese and knights of Council 11978, Canton, Texas in services with the Marion Icon. Fr. Fenton of Mary Queen of Heaven and Council 12253, Malakoff, Texas presided over beautiful Silver Rose services. As the Pro-Life Director for the Tyler Diocese, Fr. Lowry is involved with all aspects of the program, and continues to be involved in all pro-life activities sponsored by the knights of Council 10524. He led multiple Silver Rose services at the two St. Edward campuses in Athens. As seen below, he led the Chain of Life March and rosary in front of the Henderson County Courthouse. That Chain of Life March grows bigger every year with his leadership attracting participation from the surrounding communities, members of other faith groups, and the knights from the local councils. Sir Knights from Assembly 2570 provided all the logistical support for this event. In addition, the knights of Council 12253 conducted a prayer service and rosary service and recited the rosary on the steps of the Van Zandt courthouse in Canton, several weeks after Chain of Life March in Athens. The knights of Council 10524 want everyone to be reminded of the real toll of abortions and set up to two displays in Athens to visually represent the lives lost as a result of abortions during one month in Texas. It is always the right time to pray to keep the heart beating of an unborn baby.
