Brother Knights: Mark your calendars now and RSVP for the Annual Chicago March for Life!  Spread the word around! Below is the information for the Chicago March for Life.  Please make plans to attend and everyone is welcome, so bring your family and friends. This is NW Indiana’s voice in the support of the unborn babies, so be there to be show your support.

The events begin with a mass at 11:00 am on Sunday, January 15, 2017 at Nativity of Our Savior Parish in Portage, IN with Bishop Hying before the buses leave for Chicago. I have attached a map to Nativity and the buses will leave shortly after the mass and a group picture and will return later that day.  Make sure to dress for the weather. There are 4 buses, so reserve your spot early by contacting Brian Huber with your RSVP and for info (219-406-6850  or This email address is being protected from spambots.

We're Marching for Life – Chicago!

The Knights of Columbus Council #9114 has joined forces with other Pro-Life organizations in the region to offer an opportunity to stand up for life at the March for Life Chicago event. It all kicks off with Bishop Hying celebrating the 11am mass at Nativity! So please join us Jan 15, 2017, 11:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Free box lunch and Free round trip bus transportation from Nativity of our Savior Catholic Church, Portage

Visit  for details and registration. Registration closes January 5, 2017. Four buses reserved. Reserve your seat early!

This is a great opportunity to show your support of Pro-Life if you can’t make the national march in Washington and it is a excellent way to prepare if you are going to the national March in Washington.

Please let Brian know if you have someone or a group/organization willing to sponsor additional buses, since these buses are filling up quickly!

Vivat Jesus!
