Beginning next week, we need devoted pro-life warriors to join us in prayer outside the Southwestern late-term abortion center in Dallas.  Any commitment is appreciated, but we especially need the support of the Knights of Columbus during the evening vigil hours (12 midnight to 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 11: 59 p.m.) of the following days:

  • Tuesday, October 4
  • Wednesday, October 5 (only midnight to 7 a.m. needed)
  • Thursday, October 6 (only midnight to 7 a.m. needed)
  • Sunday, October 9
  • Wednesday, October 12
  • Sunday, October 16 (only 7 p.m to midnight needed)
  • Monday, October 17
  • Tuesday, October 18
  • Wednesday, October 19 (only midnight to 7 a.m. needed)
  • Friday, October 21 (only midnight to 7 a.m. needed)
  • Tuesday, October 25 (only midnight to 7 a.m. needed)
  • Wednesday, October 26 (only midnight to 7 a.m. needed)
  • Monday, October 31

If you or your council can help with any of these times, or would like to adopt another time during the campaign, please contact or 972-267-LIFE (5433) as soon as possible.

Any Knight who completes at least 4 hours of nighttime prayer during the campaign will qualify for recognition in the Order of the Hours.  As I mentioned in my letter earlier this month, the Order of the Hours is a new program developed by your Brother Knight (and 40 Days for Life-Dallas Event Coordinator) Reg Plattto recognize your unwavering commitment to advancing a Culture of Life.  Knights who offer up 24 hours of prayer, complete 4 hours of nighttime vigil, or agree to be “on standby” to cover open hours will receive one of three designations to recognize their commitment.  The Order of the Hours is enthusiastically endorsed by Dallas Diocesan Deputy Roger Scott and State Pro-Life Chairman Tom Clark, who urge all local Knights and Knights Councils to participate. You can find more information about the Order here or by contacting Reg Platt at or 214-392-4098.

Finally, I hope to see you at the Kickoff Rally next Tuesday, September 27, at 6:30 p.m., at Harry S. Moss Park, 8000 Greenville Ave., Dallas, featuring the powerful testimony of former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Trevino!
