About the Fourth Degree



About the Fourth Degree


Any Third Degree member in good standing is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the knights’ respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups (called “assemblies). 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.


The Archbishop Howley Assembly, led by its Faithful Navigator, is very active in the area of religious activities. The honor Guard is called upon from time to time to take part in such activities as Rosaries and attend funerals for deceased Sir Knights.


The Assembly holds its meetings on the first Thursday of every month at Terra Nova Council at 8:30pm


Application for membership in the Assembly can be picked up at Terra Nova Council.  For more information call 709-726-1452
