Parish Life at St Clare's

There is no better way to live your Catholic faith in these challenging times than by becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus at St Clare of Assisi! If you are a practicing Catholic man 18 years of age or older, you are already qualified!

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in 1882 by Father Michael McGivney, the Order is dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in parishes and communities.

In British Columbia and the Yukon the Knights number nearly 12,000 men and counting! Our Council at St Clare’s will afford you the opportunity to add your time, talent and treasures to those of other faithful, like-minded men in our parish to help our parish flourish.

You will always be supported as you contribute to areas of parish and community life that most interest you. Our core committees focus on Church, Council, Community, Youth and Families and provide an excellent vehicle for every willing Catholic gentleman to become more involved in the parish and their faith.

Contact our Grand Knight for more information about becoming a Knight or simply ask a Knight you know.

God Bless!

John 6:52-53

Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?”

So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.

John 15

No longer shall I call you servants, for a servant knows not what his master does. Now I shall call you friends, for I have revealed to you all that I have heard from my Father.

St. Teresa of Avila

Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which to look at Christ’s compassion to the world, yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good, and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.
