Culture of Life

Brother Knights;

Please see some of our recent activities to Support Life.

40 Days of Prayer 

Council 13341, Cosmas and Damian, participated in the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil on both Tuesday, April 9, 2019, and on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at Planned Parenthood in Sarasota from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  40 Days for Life is an international, peaceful campaign that is designed to prayer to end abortions around the world. For the 1st time, the Sarasota/Bradenton areas took part in a Spring Prayer Vigil that was adjoined by 377 other sites around the world.  This local prayer vigil encompassed 12 hours/day, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, from Wednesday, March 6, 2019 (Ash Wednesday) through Sunday, April 14, 2019 (Palm Sunday) at Planned Parenthood located at 736 Central Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236? The Holy Spirit was really working overtime as we had over 50 parishioners participate on both days, and a total of 160 hours were prayed to end abortion in our country and around the world. Many of these parishioners were members of the Knights. 

Our Crew


Special Project to help Sarasota Community Pregnancy Center

On Saturday, April 20, 2019, four Brother Knights of Council 13341 completed a sod removal project on  the front lawn of the Sarasota Community Pregnancy Center, which is the Pro-life center located adjacent to Planned Parenthood Property.  The mission of this center is to save mothers and their babies, which made it a “Culture of Life Activity”.  Now that the sod is removed, new sod can be installed, and then this area can be landscaped to make it much more attractive for clients. Due to the efforts of these brother knights, this area is now well prepared for the next phase of this project.
