What is the 4th
It's The Patriotic Degree of
Religiously Devoted, Patriotically Proud
For most men who follow Jesus, there comes a
time when duty extends beyond our own lives, beyond how we lead our
families, and into how we serve our fellow man. That's what the Knights
of Columbus is all about. The Patriotic Degree allows knights to take
this one step further. "Sir Knight" is more than a title.
It's an honor.
The primary purpose of your Fourth Degree
membership is to foster the spirit of patriotism in members and the
community at large and encourage active Catholic citizenship.
As a Fourth Degree Knight you have the
opportunity to become part of your assembly's color corps. As a color
corps member, you will be recognized widely by the distinctive attire of
tuxedo, feathered hat (chapeau), cape and sword. Color corps members
regularly take part in civic events such as parades and wreath-laying
ceremonies, and in ecclesial functions at Catholic Churches.
Escorting the Icon of
Our Lady of Czestochowa
The campaign is based on the pilgrimage
of an icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa
which has already traveled over 40
thousand miles, traversed 24 countries,
visited 75 cathedrals and 60 Orthodox
churches in over 400 cities; today it
was in Wellington Fl at the Planned
Parent facility. Assembly 2709 helped
carry in the icon and posted an Honor
Guard for it.

Our Assembly's participating Councils are very
involved with their Churches and their
Community. We get involved as evidenced
with some of the events shown above. There are 4 principle tenants
that we hold dear and follow for the benefit of our Community, Church,
Friends, and Family. They are: "Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and
Join the Patriotic Degree if you’ve been a Knight for more than six
months, and you are a Third Degree Knight in good standing, it’s time to
consider taking your journey one step further.
