"“When knighthood was in flower, knights carried the sword to defend their God, their Church, their country and their fellow man according to the code of chivalry. Today, Sir Knights wear regalia and carry the sword to honor Christ and His apostles, especially on religious and civic occasions specified in this manual. Hence, the primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to encourage active Catholic citizenship and foster the spirit of patriotism in members and the community at large." More than ever, we are in need of Fourth Degree Knights to represent not only the Knights of Columbus, but the Catholic Church. We are noticed walking down main street for a parade, attending a funeral for a brother Sir Knight, standing guard with our Priests and Bishops around the state, and other various activities that promote Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.
