The Knights of Columbus provide members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people.

Fourth Degree

Members proceed through four separate and distinct degrees with each providing further insight into the four principles of the Order of the Knights of Columbus. Any Third Degree member in good standing, one year after the anniversary of his First Degree, 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 the Knight's respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups (called "assemblies"). Certain members of the Fourth Degree serve as honor guards at civic and religious functions, an activity that has brought worldwide recognition to the Knights of Columbus.
