2020 Council Scholarships
The Scholarship Committee awarded five $1,000 scholarships to High School Seniors from the Class of 2020.

Thank you to all who contributed to the Scholarship Fund and made our program successful this year.
A new Era for the Knights of Columbus
You may have heard or read about the new degree program for initiation into the Order. The Supreme Council has developed a
new Exemplification that encompasses charity, unity and fraternity in a single ceremonial, eliminating individual degrees.
You can read about the new degree program
here. Due to the pandemic, the Supreme Council also developed an online degree ceremony that can be done from
home at your convenience. It's now easier than ever to become a member of the largest Catholic fraternal organization in the world!
Call Brian at 201-385-2859 with questions or to schedule your degree.

|We live out the principles of the Knights of Columbus every day . . .
Charity � Our Catholic faith teaches us to �Love thy neighbor as thyself.� We support many local charities, food pantries and the parishes we serve. We also answer calls for help from our communities when a special need arises.
Unity � Together, we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. We support one another as we work to make life better in our parishes and community.
Fraternity � The good works of individual Knights, who globally gave more than 75.6 million service hours in 2017, illustrate how as Catholics, we serve each other in fraternity and mercy.
If you want . . .
And if . . .
