October 2019

Start preparing to host the Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Marion Icon, for the 2020 Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose, for the mid-winter District Deputy’s meeting as well as all of the other Council events that are planned during the next six months. Please let your District Deputy know now if your Council would like to host the Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Marion Icon during the remainder of 2019 and if your Council would like to participate in the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose during the 2020 Pilgrimage so that your Council can be included  in the schedules for these events.

District Deputies, please follow up by asking your Councils whether they intend to host the Marion Icon during 2019 or if they would like to participate in the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose during 2020. The Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Marion Icons are currently available on the west side of the Cascades and in the Yakima Valley. 

Contact Federico Lopez, Hispanic Membership Co-Chairman if your Council is in the Yakima Valley and Dan Pradera, Hispanic Membership Co-Chairman if your Council is on the west side of the Cascades if your Council would like to participate during the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose. Contact Federico Lopez or Scott Hulse, State Warden, if your Council would like to host the Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Icon. Contact your Parish Pastor before scheduling these events!

The Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose will be southward from the Canadian border along the I-5 Corridor and through the Yakima Valley and Walla Walla during 2020. The Supreme Council has not released the schedule for the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose; however, the Washington State Council will probably receive the Silver Rose from our Brothers in the British Columbia/Yukon State (Provincial) Council sometime after April 1, 2020.

We will try to have the Silver Rose available for a Sunday Mass at a Parish in the northwest corner of our State depending on whether we receive the Silver Rose  from our British Columbia/ Yukon Brothers during a Saturday Mass. District Deputies are responsible for negotiating the schedule for the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose in the areas that they are responsible for. This means that District Deputies in adjacent Districts should be talking to one another. Parishes with Catholic schools should be a priority during weekdays since the Silver Rose can be included during the weekday Mass with the Parish Pastor’s permission. The Silver Rose will be available for a Sunday Mass in the Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia area, a Sunday Mass in the Chehalis-Centralia-Longview-Vancouver area, a Sunday Mass at the northern end of the Yakima Valley and a Sunday Mass at the southern end of the Yakima Valley, where we will turn custody of the Silver Rose over to our brothers in the Idaho or Oregon State Councils.

Thank you to all who have or will participate in the Marion Icon Prayer Program and the Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose. These events provide us with a very public opportunity to reaffirm our devotion to Mary, Mother of Jesus, Mother of Our Church, Patroness of the Unborn, Protector of the Disadvantaged and Mother of ALL the Americas.

Vivat Jesus!
