KofC Phoenix: S+L in Arizona for Knights of Columbus Convention

August 3, 2009
kofc-logoI am writing from sunny Arizona where I am currently getting ready to host Salt + Light Television’s exclusive live coverage of the 127th Supreme Convention of the Knights of Columbus.
From August 4-6 thousands of Knights from Canada, the USA, and around the world will gather with more than 80 Bishops and Cardinals for the annual convention which celebrates the charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism that lie at the core of the Knight of Columbus.
For this year's coverage we will be partnering with CatholicTV in Boston. I will be hosting with Kevin Nelson and producers Michele Nuzzo and Alicia Ambrosio will be on the convention floor bringing you interviews, analysis and constant updates. You can check out our broadcast schedule HERE.
There is another important element of this year’s convention that you will want to keep your eye on. Tomorrow (August 4) Supreme Knight Carl Anderson’s latest book goes on sale. Entitled, Our Lady of Guadalupe: Mother of the Civilization of Love, Anderson and his co-author Monsignor Eduardo Chavez explore the incredible impact of Our Lady of Guadalupe over the past four centuries. The book not only examines the history of the 16th century apparition, but also demonstrates the relevance of Our Lady of Guadalupe on our contemporary Church.
The book’s publication coincides with the The First International Marian Congress on Our Lady of Guadalupe, which will take place immediately following the Supreme Convention in Phoenix. Sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, the Festival will bring together prominent Catholic speakers and world class musicians, including members of Quebec's Famille Marie-Jeunesse community, as they celebrate the importance of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Though we won't be broadcasting the Marian Congress live, we will be present filming highlights for a future program on the event.
Our production team is excited about being present for this incredible week of faith and fellowship. We hope you enjoy our coverage of the 127th Supreme Knights Convention.
