Knights of the Patriotic Degree are dedicated to the personal development and continued honor of brother Knights. We are always there to offer leadership, guidance, and encouragement. Knights of the Patriotic Degree glorify God by serving our communities and nations as though Christ were the one being served. Knights of the Patriotic Degree hold unwaveringly to what is right and honorable, working to keep God in the civic arena, serving the life of the Church, and defending laws that recognize the sanctity of life and true religious liberty.

WELCOME!

On behalf of the Worthy Master, William F. Howe and Lady Mary Lou, congratulations on you joining the ranks of the 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus!

The 4th Degree is a Patriotic Degree.  For most men who follow Jesus, there comes a time when duty extends beyond our own lives, beyond how we lead our families, and into how we serve our fellow man. That’s what the Knights of Columbus is all about. The Patriotic Degree allows knights to take this one step further. “Sir Knight” is more than a title. It’s an honor.

Again, congratulations and welcome to our ranks!
