When a Catholic gentleman applies to become a member of the Knights of Columbus his application is voted on by the
members of the council. Following a favorable vote, the applicant becomes a member by initiation in what is called the First Degree. Subsequently he advances through the Second and Third degrees. Advancing through the 2nd & 3rd degrees broadens a member's
understanding of the Order, and how membership helps to strengthen our Faith.
Each Degree is associated with one
of the Principles of the Order.
1st Principle (Degree) - Charity
2nd Principle (Degree) - Unity
3rd Principle (Degree) - Fraternity
Members who have been in the Knights
for one year and have attained Third Degree membership are eligible to join the
Fourth Degree Knights.
4th Principle (Degree) - Patriotism
Applications for membership in theKnights of Columbus, also known as a Form 100, are available from any member and can
also be found in the hallway of the Council headquarters. If you have questions about St. John's Council, stop by on a Friday evening after 8PM. We're open almost every Friday for socializing with other members and their families. Check the calendar link for any notifications about closures.
