Welcome to the Father Robert T. Lawson Assembly

Home of the Sacred Heart Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree

Southport, North Carolina

 

  

There are four degrees of membership in the Knights.  The first three degrees represent the values of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity.  The Fourth Degree is dedicated to the virtue of Patriotism, fostering that spirit in all members and the community at large. The Fourth Degree is the one most familiar to the public, identified by distinctive regalia and their participation in color corps and honor guards. members are referred to as "Sir Knight".  They work tirelessly in their outreach to our nation's military, active, infirmed, or retired. It is a position of prestige and something for which all Knights should strive.

 

The Rev. Robert T. Lawson Assembly conducts over a dozen events over the course of the Columbian Year.  Periodically, the website will post detailed descriptions of the events in order to inform potential 4th Degree candidates of the activities available to them as a Sir Knight.
