REACH YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL
The Fourth Degree is a group of outstanding Knights, dedicated to promoting patriotism enlightened by their Catholic faith. These Knights, distinguished by exemplary deeds for God, for country, and the Order, are united by the Fourth Degree to support religious, civic, and charitable causes.
Fourth Degree members belong to local units called assemblies. Each assembly is involved in a wide range of public patriotic activities.
Each assembly maintains a Fourth Degree Color Corps and Honor Guard. Uniformed members wearing the Official Uniform, and swords participate in special civic and religious ceremonies. For this reason, the Fourth Degree is often called the visible arm of the Knights of Columbus.
To qualify for the Fourth Degree, one must:
1. Be over 18 years of age;
2. Be a citizen of the United States;
3. Be a Third Degree member in good standing with your Council;
