We Choose Life

June 6, 2009

We have been noticed……

My report to the Knights of Columbus website, via Knights in Action, rendered fruitful results.  The report I submitted, (I also published a copy of which to this blog) bears a picture of us prior to the march and was chosen by the editorial staff of “Knightline” magazine as the picture that symbolizes the march as a whole.

I got several text messages confirming that they have seen this copy of the magazine.

View it from this link and please do find the picture on page 2.

Then I also got feedback that the same picture and report was published in the May 2009 issue of monthly published “Columbia Magazine”.

Check it out on page 7 from this link.

I also got text messages from brother knights from the assembly about this article. Oh well, I am glad I have found the right way (finally) to report our council’s projects.

In response to the call of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) for all Catholics to unite and show our stand on the infamous bill in Philippine Congress, the Reproductive Health Bill 5043, the Knights of Columbus in the Philippines held a tri-State (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao Territorial Jurisdictions) Simultaneous “Walk for Life”.  Tambo Council No. 6167 together with other councils in Padre Pedro M. Dandan Assembly of the fourth degree (ACN 0991) and disctricts (P23, 24, 25 and 26) have sent delegates to form the Diocese of Paranaque congregation of the said event held on 21 March 2009. 


 The event started with a Holy Mass, presided by Most Rev. Honesto Ongtioco D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Cubao and State Chaplain of Luzon Terrotorial Jurisdiction, at the san Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila followed by the “Walk for Life” march towards Liwasang Bonicafio where a short program was held.

 In the program, the guest speakers were Mayor Alfredo Lim of the City of Manila, Dra Acosta (a former senior officer of the Department of Health), Luzon Deputy Alonso Tan, a read message from Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, Monsignor Pedro Quitorio and Most Rev. Honesto Ongtioco.

We choose life and We defend life.
