St. John's Council #1345 - Dumont NJ
Calendar Directions Contact Us The Knight Times News Home


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.
