Welcome to the official website of
Knights of Columbus
Saint Paul the Apostle Council No. 9652
at Kingston, Ontario, Canada!
We, the Knights of Columbus, Council 9652, St. Paul the Apostle, strive to deepen our relationship with Christ and each other by promoting God’s work. We support our Bishop, Priests and Community by holding fast to our mission as Catholic laymen.
We provide support to widows and children of deceased members who die an untimely death, and foster fraternal spirit.
Join Pope Francis and Knights worldwide in deepening your commitment to the Gospel of Life and in supporting the most vulnerable through prayer.
We invite you to join Catholics around the world in a novena for the cause of life from Oct. 4 to 12. Throughout these nine days, we will pray for an end to abortion, euthanasia and the many social ills that bring sickness, broken families, unhappiness and premature death. The novena, prepared by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council, calls upon the intercession of Our Lady and draws from the teachings of Pope Francis regarding the sanctity of all human life.
Each day of the novena, you are invited to reflect on a unique quote from the teachings of Pope Francis on the sanctity of life, pray a decade of the rosary and conclude with a prayer from St. John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae.
Join us in prayer by following the daily petitions found here, and can be downloaded by clicking the image below offline use.
You can also sign up to receive an email on each of the nine days of the novena. Click here for details.
