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.
But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ
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.
