4th Degree

Fourth Degree Knights, in their tuxedoes and feathered hats, are probably the most visible part of the Knights of Columbus.

Any Third Degree member in good standing, one year after the anniversary of his First Degree, is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism. Fourth Degree members do so by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of, and loyalty to, the Knights.  Certain members of the Fourth Degree serve as honor guards at civic and religious functions, an activity that has brought worldwide recognition to the Knights of Columbus.
