Become a Knight!

Who is eligible?
1.You must be over 18 years old. (those between 10 and 18 may join a Squires Circle)
2.You must be a man. 
3.You must be a practical Catholic.
•A practical Catholic accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

Many eligible people are not Knights simply because they have never been asked, or never knew what it means to be a knight.
If you meet the above three requirements, keep reading … you are already well on your way.

What it means to be a Knight?

Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
The Knights have been described as the Strong Right Arm of the Church.

How do I become a Knight?

If you are an eligible candidate the first step is to contact us here and let us know that you are interested.
You will be provided with further information.

Once we have contacted you, and the proper steps have been taken, we will notify you of when and where the next first degree will be.
You will be escorted by one or more of our members as you take the first step toward becoming a Knight.

There are four degrees within the Knights of Columbus. Each degree ceremony imparts a lesson on the Order’s core virtues of
1.Charity
2.Unity
3.Fraternity
4.Patriotism.

Upon completion of the first degree you are a Knight, however, only a third degree Knight can hold an officer position and are considered a full member.

The Fourth Degree is the highest degree of the order. Fewer than 18% are Fourth Degree Knights. Members of this degree are addressed as “Sir Knight”. Members of the Fourth Degree may attend local Assembly meetings and may wear the full regalia of black tuxedo, baldric, white gloves, cape, chapeau, and sword.
Our council strongly encourages all members to pursue this highest degree.
