Bringing a Strong Pro-Life Message to Arizona Rosary Celebration
The Dioceses of Tucson and Phoenix have been fortunate to participate in the symbolic "Running of the Silver Rose" during the Arizona Rosary Celebration in Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona. Over the years, this activity involved the Knights of Columbus Columbian Squires and youth of the diocese.
If available, the Silver Rose arrives in Arizona, and with the assistance of Tucson and Phoenix Knights, is a part of the Arizona Rosary Celebration. Unfortunately the scheduling of the Silver Rose does not always coincide with the Rosary Celebration.
The association of roses with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is historic, and the presentation of the Silver Rose recognizes her role today in the protection of the unborn.
