March for Life 2018

Hello all brother Knights and all men of good will .
See poster,  an information page for the annual March for Life in Halifax .
 As usual we encourage all men and women , esp. those who respect the true value of all Created Life and our Creator , to join with others of the same mind and Heart to support that Life in a peaceful and prayerful demonstration in saying NO to the  “Culture of Death ” mentality that is working diligently to capture the hearts and minds of this present age .
All places and dates and times are on the brochure we encourage you, to print off and post, and encourage  your neighbours to join you.
Thank you

Become an Agent in Nova Scotia

We are currently looking for Agents in Nova Scotia.  This may be just the opportunity for you, or it may be for someone you know who is not happy in his current situation.




Have you ever taken a moment to stop and ask yourself, is there a career opportunity out there for me?

1) …that will allow me to be my own boss?”
2) …where I can have unlimited income potential?”

3) …where I can have excellent benefits?”

4) …where I can become a respected member of my community?”

There is such a career where all this is possible…and much more. Consider a career as a field agent for the Knights of Columbus.  This is a career with a few very important qualifications and a long list of benefits that no single other
career can provide.

Qualifications:                                        Benefits:
High integrity                                         Opportunity to make a difference in members’ lives

Self-motivated                                       Individualized training program
Good time management                       Flexible hours once established
Entrepreneurial                                     Income potential of a professional

Goal oriented                                       Training allowance and production bonuses

Genuine concern for others                 Non-contributory, defined benefit pension plan

Desire to succeed                                Ongoing supervision and self-development

Incentive award trips to places like Rome,Hawaii, St Thomas, Cancun and Ireland

If you’re still not convinced that the Knights of Columbus provides and excellent opportunity, then consider a few other questions:

1) If you remain in your current position, where will you be three years from now? (Income, promotion, possibilities, etc.)
2) How would it feel to have your income be a direct reflection of your success at work?

3) What would it feel like to know that while earning as much as you desire, you are also helping people prepare for their future?

If these three questions make you stop and think, maybe we should talk.  My contact information is below.
