March 10th Payer Rally at the Capital Cancelled. Note from State Deputy.
The New York Catholic Conference under the direction of the Bishops of New York, has canceled the “Catholics at the Capital” on March 10, 2015. This means that the Knights of Columbus Prayer Rally, which we have held in conjunction with this event, must also be canceled. The Bishops have opted for a reception, the evening before, inviting political leaders of New York State where our issues can be pressed.
Please note, it was not our decision to cancel the event but that of the Catholic Conference. As always, we wish our Bishops and the New York State Catholic Conference much success in their efforts to promote Catholic issues.
