Click here to view the Monthly Vocation Testimony - May 2019


Father Patrick Bénéteau is the Director of Vocations for the Diocese of London.  He grew up in River Canard and issues monthly Testimonies related to Vocations to a number of Councils and Agencies throughout the Diocese.  These publications we used to issue in our Quarterly Newsletters, but with our interactive website along with the fact that almost all of our members have access to UKnight, we will post these testimonies as we receive and issue via email to our members.  

Field Agent Brother Martin Skipper

Since its founding in 1882, a primary mission of the Knights of Columbus has been to protect the financial future of families. Although times have changed, and the Order has grown to include top-rated life insurance, long-term care insurance and retirement products, its mission is essentially the same. Tens of thousands of families have benefited from Knights of Columbus Insurance in recent years. 


Members in the United States and Canada have exclusive access to our insurance program and products, including life insurance, retirement annuities, long-term care insurance, and disability income insurance.


Our Field Agent Martin Skipper is a Brother Knight who carries on the tradition of helping Knights and their families plan for their futures.  He is a member of St. John Vianney Parish and is also a proud member of our Council.


Brother Martin can be reached via email or at either of the telephone numbers provided.

Father Mike Parent Commemorative Stone in the Knights of Columbus Garden

Last year, our Council's Executive with the support of our General Membership, moved to purchase and have a commemorative brick placed on the walkway of the Father Michael Joseph McGivney Memorial statue at Heavenly Rest Cemetery.  Father Mike being our Council's Founding Chaplain continues to be our spiritual leader while taking an active role in the running or our Council.  Father Mike joined the Knights of Columbus 48 years ago and is also a member of the Dean Wagner 4th Degree Assembly.  He follows in the foot steps of our founder, a humble Parish Priest who joins hands with the men of his Parish to help those in need and provide spiritual leadership to his flock.


It is with the deepest respect, gratitude and affection that our Council recognizes Fr. Mike's contribution with this tribute.
