Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 

Dear Worthy Grand Knights:

This month we join you, our brother Knights and families, in observing the 135th anniversary of the founding of the Knights of Columbus on March 29. This Founder’s Day is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to rededicate ourselves to our Order’s principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism, and to continue to seek to form our good works in the spirit of Knights of Columbus founder, the Venerable Servant of God Father Michael J. McGivney.

We are writing to you with a special appeal, one that we believe would be dear to Father McGivney’s priestly heart and thus to his Knights. We seek your support for a statewide effort called the Protect Adoption Choice campaign.

 The Kansas Legislature is currently considering the “Adoption Protection Act,” legislation that would protect faith-based adoption providers like Catholic Charities from unjust litigation and government action (the House version is HB 2687 and the Senate version is SB 401).  There have been situations in other states where government agencies have forced Catholic Charities to shut down their adoption ministry because they will only place children in homes with a married mother and father. The Adoption Protection Act would proactively ensure that this will not happen in Kansas. This legislation simply allows faith-based child placement agencies to continue to operate according to their religious principles.  The bill does not infringe upon anyone’s legal right to adopt children; it simply affirms that faith-based agencies cannot be punished for adhering to their religious beliefs in their adoption ministries.

We are calling upon you, your spouses, the voting-age members of your family, and all brother Knights to get involved in the Protect Adoption Choice campaign now before the regular session of the Kansas Legislature ends on April 6. Failure to take action on this important issue could one day result in the closure of faith-based adoption agencies like Catholic Charities.

Please contact your state representative and senator as soon as possible. The following is a sample of what you might say:


 “Hello, my name is ___________ and I am a registered voter from ___________ . I respectfully ask you to support the ‘Adoption Protection Act’ (HB 2687 in the House and SB 401 in the Senate). This legislation ensures that faith-based adoption providers like Catholic Charities will continue to be free to serve children and families.  Catholic Charities’ adoption ministry has been forced to close in other states because of groups and government agencies hostile to our Catholic beliefs. Catholic Charities and other faith-based adoption providers should be free to serve the common good as they have for so long.  This legislation does not affect anyone’ legal right to adopt, it just protects groups like Catholic Charities.  Birthmothers and adoptive parents who want to use a faith-based provider should be free to do so. As your constituent, this legislation is very important to me. Thank you.”

 

To learn more, please visit www.ProtectAdoptionChoice.org where you can directly email your state senator and representative.  To find the phone number of your state legislator, please visit http://www.kslegislature.org/ or https://openstates.org/. Those without internet access can call Legislative Administrative Services at 785-296-2391 to be connected to their legislators.

Let us join efforts as members of the largest Catholic family fraternal service organization to defend the religious freedoms we value so dearly. We place this effort under St. Joseph’s care and pray for its success through the intercession of Father McGivney.

 

Vivat Jesus!
