Event Description
The Knights of Peter Claver, Inc. follows in the footsteps of our Patron Saint – Peter Claver, who dedicated his life to fulfilling the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy by ministering to those in need. As the Knights of Peter Claver, Inc. reignite our SPIRITUAL works of mercy, our goal is to exercise our hearts, minds, and hands by continuing social justice initiatives, as well as establish National Days of Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.  In doing so, the chart identifies a theme for each month—a guide to exercise our hearts, minds, and hands as we engage in a Spiritual or Corporal Work of Mercy each month of the year. We ask each district/state, local unit, and/or individual member of the order to select a day in each month to perform a Spiritual Work (SW) or Corporal Work (CP) of Mercy based on the month’s theme. Please capture these good deeds so we can promote this faith commitment through our Claver Pride Committee.

  • March: National Day of Preaching Repentance [Admonishing the Sinner] (SW-1)
