Have You Considered Joining the Fourth Degree?
If you have ever considered joining the 4th Degree, there has never been an easier or more convenient time than now! The next Fourth Degree Exemplification will be Saturday, September 26, 2020, and will be online using Zoom. While unusual, this is being done in an abundance of caution and in keeping with current emergency orders issued by the State of Michigan Governor.
Details for logging in will be provided to Faithful Navigators and will be passed on to candidates.
The schedule will be:
9:00am Candidate Check-in
9:50am Faithful Navigator Candidate Check-in Verification
10:00am Exemplification Commences 11:45am Comments from Dignitaries
Candidate Dress Attire: Candidates need not wear a tuxedo or suit for this online event. Candidates should wear a collared shirt (dress shirt or polo shirt). Council shirts are also acceptable.
Cost: Your cost for the exemplification will only be $50 instead of the normal $70 due to the fact that there will not be a dinner served at the event.
1. This is the first time we are attempting an online 4th Degree Exemplification. Please be patient with us.
2. The exemplification is expected to take about two hours.
3. Candidates are expected to be online and attentive for the entire program.
4. Exemplification to the Fourth Degree is still considered a secret ceremonial. Please distance yourself appropriately during the ceremony.
The primary purpose of the fourth degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism and to encourage active Catholic citizenship. Fourth degree Knights work to support and assist veterans and active military personnel and veterans with such programs as assisting at Veterans Administration hospitals, conducting Flag protocol programs, sending packages to troops deployed overseas, protecting the phase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, and participating in parades and patriotic events. We donate to such patriotic endeavors as Wreathes Across America, Vets Returning Home, and the Pilgrimage to Lourdes. In addition, we continue to support the Church by participating in many Church activities and events in local parishes.
The St. John Neumann Assembly normally (during non-pandemic times) conducts nine general meetings and three social events for our members during the year. Two of the social events are held in the main hall of the St. Lawrence K of C facility. They are the St. Patrick’s Dinner in March and the Christmas Dinner in December. Our third social event is our annual picnic, held at the St. Lawrence K of C picnic grounds located on 21 Mile Road at the M-53 by-pass. This event takes place on the third Wednesday in August. Dues are only $25.00 per year.
Support of those who serve or have served us in our nation’s military, low dues, and business casual attire, reduced cost, and reduced time commitment to be exemplified. It indeed is a good time and for good reason to join the 4th Degree. Applications will need to be received by S.K. Ron Koscierzynski by Tuesday, September 1, 2020 in time for processing and registration. For more information, please contact the 4th Degree liaison in your council or contact S.K. Ron Koscierzynski,
Faithful Comptroller for the St. John Neumann Assembly 478 at 248-805-4651 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
