CANA West is a Missionary Diocese inaugurated in 2013 with Bishop Dr. Knights support their Bishop and under his authority.

7 Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything." Sir. The Bishop formed a small committee who further recommended that in order to determine the level of commitment and acceptability, the person who is to be knighted must be:1. Committed and participating Anglican in good standing and of proven moral integrity.3.

Join up with me as we honor Jesus and build up his kingdom. On August 8th the first batch of 45 Knights and their Ladies of St. Knighthood is an honor bestowed on men and women distinguished for personal character and notable accomplishments for the good of humanity.
2 Timothy 2:3-7 3 Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. In the Church recipients are persons who have conducted themselves in an exemplary manner in the past, and have equally been available for services to the Church and to Church authorities.Knights are knights of the Diocese and not knights of the parish to which you belong.Your allegiance is to your Bishop not the priest who nominated you.Scripture as the primary authority for faith and practice in the Christian life and church. Be converted to Christ and Live the Christian life : obedience & holiness.It's appalling to see the behavior of some knights. Be committed to the Spiritual Disciplines of prayer, studying the Bible, simplicity, solitude, silence, fasting etc. Engage in Christian Mission: participating, giving to the Diocesan church planting initiative, Medical missions, etc. Enable Christian ministry, worship, and unity in your local congregations. Stand with and support the bishop and diocese of CANA WEST.Sir Samuel Opara-Francis (President)[email protected] Trinity Anglican Church Nashville, TN(615) 631-6473 Sir Solomon Kanu, Esq.
