KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
PO BOX 141, LITTLE NECK, NY 11363-0141
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practical Catholic men in
union with the Holy See, who are at least 18 years old. A practical Catholic is
one who lives up to the Commandments of God and precepts of the Church.
All priests and religious brothers having duly made application for membership
and participated in the ceremonials become honorary life members of the Order.
Candidates take part in initiation degrees that explain the Knights of Columbus'
four principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.
A candidate is considered a "Knight" after taking his First Degree, but he is
encouraged to advance through the Second and Third Degrees and on to the
Fourth Degree, whose members promote the virtue of patriotism by serving in
honor guards, color corps, and promoting respect for country and the flag.
As our Grand Knight, Fred Bedell stated during a meeting, "To sqash evil, you
must get involved.".
