On behalf of the staff of the Saint John Paul II National Shrine, I would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Many of you will be joining Catholics from across the country in Washington, DC for the 45th Annual March for Life. As part of an effort to support and promote a culture of life, we would like to welcome our Brother Knights to The Nation’s Capital by hosting a free Open House for all Knights and their families on Friday, January 19, 2018 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
After marching in support of life, join brother Knights from across the country for conversation, hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies. While you are here, take some time to pray for life and tour our beautiful Church and Chapel. Spend time in prayer before a first class relic of our patron and experience our moving exhibit on the life and legacy of Saint John Paul II.
While you are in Washington please visit your Shrine. The Saint John Paul II National Shrine is located right across the street from The Catholic University of America in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington, DC. Free parking is available, and we are a 15 minute walk from the Brookland Station on Metro’s Red line.
Admission is free but please RSVP at http://jp2shrine.org/knightsrsvp so that we can better welcome you, your family, and your Council to the Shrine.
We look forward to welcoming you.
