S+L is your home for coverage of the #KofCPA15 Supreme Convention

July 30, 2015
Knightsblog(Sebastian and Emilie preparing the script for the Knights of Columbus Convention taking place in Philadelphia next week.)
Just listening to the amazing accomplishments of the Knights of Columbus each year at the Supreme Convention is enough reason to celebrate.  The international lay organization is the largest in the Church, donating millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours to help those most in need throughout North America and around the world.
This year Emilie Callan and I will be spearheading S+L's coverage and we couldn't be more excited.  It's the 133rd Supreme Convention and it's happening in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love and America's cradle of religious liberty.  What better place to celebrate the Knights of Columbus, an organization which is grounded in the principles of fraternity, unity, charity and patriotism?  Look for these themes to get a lot of attention at the Convention.
The location is significant for another reason this year.  Philadelphia is preparing to welcome thousands of pilgrims for the World Meeting of Families, and a million more for the visit of Pope Francis in September!  This will be a primary focus of our coverage this year, which we hope will include exclusive interviews with the Bishops of the host cities of Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York.
Apart from the business side of things, the Knights Convention always provides an opportunity to greet new and familiar folks and to take the pulse of the North American Church.  We are living through a fascinating moment in Church history, and with the visit of Pope Francis to the US on the horizon what better time and place to explore the insights and sensibilities of some of the most active members of the Catholic family.  You won't want to miss this conversation!
Please join us for comprehensive coverage of the 133rd Supreme Convention of the Knights of Columbus beginning next week Tuesday, August 4.  For complete details please visit: S+L's KofC Convention webpage
We'll see you next week from the City of Brotherly love!.. And don't forget to share the experience on social media with #KofCPA15
