Faith in Action – C#8520 – West Kelowna

On Sunday May 26, Our Lady of Lourdes Knights of Columbus Council 8520 will conduct our fifth Monthly Hour of Healing Prayer Service at 7pm in the church.  

The service consists of hymns, readings, petitions followed by the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

The Service came about as the reaction of our Council to address the scandals taking place at all levels of the Universal Church. The Healing Service petitions God for the victims of abuse at the hands of clergy and laity.  – Faith/Community

Thomas Haney Council 5566 in Maple Ridge, BC, conducted Holy Hour on 4th Monday of each month in the Chapel with Knights and families attending. We developed our own program with Rosary, prayers, hymns and for the readings we used “Christ: Lord and Saviour” by Father John Baptist Ku, O.P.  Starting this month we will use “Into the Breach” by Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix.
