Degrees that make a Knight

There are 4 Degrees of Membership in the Order that correspond to our 4 Principles – Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

The Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity initiates a new member as a Third Degree Knight in his local council. CHARITY - our Catholic faith calls us to the love of God and of our neighbor. As Knights, we strive to fulfill this duty through our Faith In Action programs. UNITY - as members of Christ’s one church, we practice our faith together. FRATERNITY – from its beginnings, the Order has always sought to strengthen men, to help them as brothers, and to provide for their families in time of need. PATRIOTISM – Members who continue on to become Fourth Degree Sir Knights in an assembly dedicate themselves to the ideals of Catholic citizenship, most visibly through the uniformed Honor Guard.
