The Fourth Degree is the most visible arm of the Knights of Columbus. With the Knights’ signature chapeau, brightly colored cape, white gloves and sword, Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus represent the highest membership into our organization. On February 22, 1900, the first fourth degree exemplification was held in New York City. The ritual added patriotism to the three original principles of the Order: charity, unity and fraternity.
Any Third Degree member in good standing is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to our nation through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups called assemblies.
The next Fourth Degree exemplification ceremony will take place on February 22, 2014. Contact Mike Rynne (email@example.com) as soon as possible to arrange for your participation if you wish to take the Degree and join other Knights for a special dinner. Visit this web site to find upcoming degree ceremonies if you still need to take your second or third degree before February 22.
A time to relax and reflect with fellow Knights and family members.
