Running of the Silver Rose
This Project was started by the Columbian Squires, the youth branch of the Knights of Columbus, in 1960.
Squires ran a real rose from Canada through the United States to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The project continued in subsequent years, but with a silver rose crafted by an artist in Mexico.
In the 90’s the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council took over the project, and there are now 4 roses that start in Canada, travel through the United States, and arrive in Monterrey for the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12.
The rose that will arrive in Del Rio on November 12, is the rose that travels down the west coast of the United States.
