We are thrilled to share that two very special Knights of Columbus documentary projects will be airing on U.S. television networks in the coming weeks — “Warriors to Lourdes” and “Everyday Heroes.” Both of these films capture compelling personal stories of individuals who have found strength through their faith and for whom the Knights of Columbus have played a special role. 

These moving films are an excellent way for the Knights to help show the world who we are as an organization. While most people have heard of the Knights of Columbus, there are many who are not well-acquainted with the breadth and character of the Order.  We welcome your assistance in promoting these two documentaries. We invite you to share our social media posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

 
 
Warriors to Lourdes

There is an invisible wound of war that is only beginning to draw public attention. In addition to mental and emotional suffering, moral injury represents the spiritual dimension of trauma.

This important and timely topic is brought to life with searing emotion in Warriors to Lourdes, a new documentary film produced by the Knights of Columbus.

This 28-minute film highlights the transformative experience of the annual Warriors to Lourdes pilgrimage for wounded, ill and injured veterans seeking physical and spiritual healing. Through very personal accounts of men and women in uniform, along with those of military chaplains, the film showcases the life-changing impact of this spiritual pilgrimage. These stories reveal that sometimes the greatest acts of courage occur not on the battlefield but inside the human heart.

Schedule of airings and the movie trailer can be found here.

 
Everyday Heroes

Throughout history, humanity has been enthralled by the idea of Heroes. From Hercules to Superman, the heroic narrative in literature, the arts and culture has been passed from one generation to the next.

But heroism is not some unattainable ideal. It is not reserved for only mythology. Heroism is a worthy goal that lies within our grasp.

That is the central message of Everyday Heroes, a new documentary film featuring the witnesses of remarkable Brother Knights whose courage, faith and commitment to charity embody the mission of the Knights of Columbus. 

 

From the college football star who selflessly put the needs of others before his own to the Special Olympics athlete who gives witness to the dignity of all human life — these stories demonstrate how the betterment of our world ultimately begins with the individual human heart.
