Knights of Columbus introduces new Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity

To attract more, younger, faith-filled Catholic men at a time when the Church needs them the most, the Knights of Columbus is changing with the times.  The Supreme Council has introduced a new degree which will allow candidates to reach full Knighthood in a single ceremony.  The new degree, currently called the Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity was introduced by Supreme Knight, Carl Anderson.

The announcement also eliminates the need for secrecy.  In fact, the new degree includes plans for inviting family and friends to the degree.  The Current Issue Of Knightline takes a closer look at the new ceremony.  We encourage all members to read these articles to learn more about the changes and why they were made at this time.

Mary’s Millennium Council would like to congratulate our latest 3rd Degree Knight, Charles (Chuck) Kuhn.    He becomes the first Knight of our council to reach full Knighthood using this new ceremony.   The 4th Degree, Patriotic degree, remains a separate ceremony.  It is an optional degree for those that wish to become part of an Assembly.   Both third- and fourth-degree Knights can hold officer positions in the council.   Please join me in congratulating Chuck on this accomplishment.
