MISSION: To be visible in our parish and community as good Catholics and sound citizens of our country, and to promote the ideals of Catholicism and Patriotism side by side.
DESCRIPTION: Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus must achieve their first three degrees, based on Charity, Unity, and Fraternity. The principle of the Fourth Degree is Patriotism. Thus we are often known as “The Patriotic Degree.” Our Assembly honors the Priesthood, commemorates Knights who have passed before us, and those citizens who have served to protect our freedom.
TRAITS/TALENTS NEEDED: Current Third Degree Knights or practical Catholic gentlemen who are ready to join the Knights of Columbus and progress through the degrees, so they may honor the Catholic Priesthood, and show gratitude for the blessings we have been provided to worship God freely in this country.
TIME COMMITMENT: We hold Assembly meetings once per month, except in November and December. Meetings are currently held in the lower level of St. Mark at 6:00 PM each fourth Sunday of the month. Involvement in programs is voluntary based on time available.
