Please note that this is a great opportunity for current 1st degree Knights to advance to both the 2nd and 3rd degree in the Knights of Columbus in one morning.
You are eligible for advancement in our Order.
As a Council, those of us who have already achieved this advancement level recommend your taking these important steps toward full Knighthood.
As you witnessed in your 1st degree ceremony, there was a portion of that ceremony intended to portray a lasting impression on how you should view your life, and your stewardship.
You learned the first principle of a Knight, Charity, and we trust that you see that principle in action as you have been working with our Council.
During both the 2nd and 3rd degree ceremonies, you learn additional key principles of a Knight, put into perspective so that you will be left with a lasting impression of how it may apply to your life as a Catholic gentleman.
We encourage each of our members who are eligible to advance to the 2nd and/or 3rd degree to do so, as it places more of our Council Brothers on an equal footing with regard to our understanding of what it means to be a Knight.
The Fr. Herbert Hall anti-chamber room is located at the rear of the school, look for the Knights of Columbus Council entry door.
Please inform our Council Chancellor & Advancement Chairman Ron Coombs, before Sunday May 29th that you are a 2nd or 3rd degree ready to advance candidate and you will attend this ceremony. Also, any Knights who have attained the 2nd or 3rd Degree are encouraged to attend and support our brothers as they advance.
