Fourth Degree

4th Degree

The Patriotic Degree, the Knights of Columbus 4th Degree is unique, and separate of the Councils.  The 4th degree Knights are part of an “Assembly”  Our local Assembly is the Padre Louis De Soto Assembly, 1860.  So, our council Knights who are Knighted in the 4th degree are members of Assembly 1860, and meet in McLaughlin hall on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7pm preceded by a family social at 6pm.  At 7pm the room divider is pulled closed and the ladies play cards and socialize till the meeting adjourns about an hour later.  Many 4th degree Knights purchase the “Regalia” to become part of the “Color Corps” and attend functions dressed in regalia to represent the Knights of Columbus.  Funerals for priests, deacons, and brother Knights, along with many other functions where Knights of Columbus representation is deemed beneficial and appropriate.  Our Council Chancellor would enjoy introducing any 3rd degree Knight to the 4th degree.
