As part of the Centenary Celebrations Archbishop Porteous has kindly arranged for a large article in the August edition for the Catholic Standard.
He will also ensure that every parish in Tasmania will have a message in their newsletter to promote the Centenary and that the Knights will be included in the Prayers of the Faithful on the weekend of the 27th at every Mass across Tasmania.
Parishes will also receive KSC Centenary Prayer Cards to distribute for 26/27 August. This will include a modified Knights Prayer for Parishioners and a "thank you" blessing and prayer from the Knights thanking all Tasmania Catholics who have assisted the Knights in their service over the last 100 years.
