Knights of Columbus

My faith is very much at the center of my life. I come from a faith-filled family that instilled in me a great love of God. My devotion was nurtured by my parents who are a great example of our living faith. Faith is of such great importance that they continue to make sacrifices so that myself and my two siblings can attend catholic schools. My parents planted the seed of faith and Holy Cross school and Parish became the strong roots and foundation that have enabled me to ...

Growing up, I was fortunate enough to be part of the Catholic faith and attend a Catholic school. It was during these times that I grew into the person I am today with the support of teachers, priests, and peers.

I learned the sense of community that I experienced as a young kid at Holy Cross Parish. I met new families and friends and attended church events like pancake breakfast and the Salmon BBQ, where I talked and played with other kids. Moreover, I would frequently visit the church on w...

Talk to Knights of Columbus September 2019

Good evening brothers, I hope you are having a good week. My talk for this evening is Seven Days to Happiness. As you know our lives can be challenging every day with so many demands on our precious time, struggling with financial constraints, and trying to maintain good personal relations with our family, friends and colleagues, it is easy to develop a negative outlook on life. The Bible tells us that cheerfulness keeps us healthy; Proverbs 17:22 re...

A donation drive at Holy Cross Elementary School in Burnaby turned out to be a success as 67 bicycles – including 27 bikes for kids – were given away May 4.

According to organizer Graham Darling, those sets of wheels will be given away to people in the community with low incomes looking for an inexpensive way to travel.

“This is currently the only event of its kind in the Greater Vancouver area,” said Darling.

The Knights of Columbus offered the event in partnership with various organizations...

When a huge, superhero-themed festival hit the streets of Burnaby in June, members of Holy Cross Parish saw an opportunity to evangelize.

They joined the parade with a float featuring a cross crowned with thorns, wearing a red cape and labelled “HERO.”  They also carried banners of the Knights of Columbus and symbols of the various activities and charitable works the parish offers.

Parade organizers estimated a total of 50,000 people participated in the festival.
