Today's Events

Start Time: 12:00 AM
Location: NJ
End Time: 11:59 PM
Monmouth County faith communities and their local Knights of Columbus councils will be uniting in one common goal this January: to spread the news that all life is precious. The Cohort 14 parishes of Our Lady of Fatima, Keyport; Holy Family, Union Beach, and St. Clement, Matawan, will host “Celebrate Life 2020!” a series of pro-life events set for Jan. 15-25. They are being joined in their efforts by St. Benedict Parish, Holmdel. Events include a nine-day Novena for Life, with each parish hosting three evenings of prayer, which will conclude Jan. 23. A prayer service will also take place at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 25 on the grounds of St. Joseph Church, 376 Maple Place, Keyport. Plans for that evening include a pro-life guest speaker, mini-march for life and showing of the movie “Unplanned.” The novenas, which begin at 7:30 p.m., are scheduled to allow time for faithful to attend the Jan. 22 Rally for Life in Trenton and the Jan. 24 March for Life in Washington. Those unable to attend can participate remotely, stressed Our Lady of Fatima parishioner Gregg Savoy. “People can take home personal home novena kits, which contain battery-operated votive candles, the ‘Gospel of Life’ by St. John Paul II, prayer cards and Rosary rings,” Savoy explained. “We are planning to live-stream the march and speaker as well.” The pro-life program is open to any members of the community who respect the sanctity of life, stressed Savoy, of Jesus The Lord Council, Keyport. “This is an outreach for those Catholics separated from the Church, and also people of the community we can evangelize.” For more information, see “Celebrate Life 2020!” on Facebook or contact Gregg Savoy at
