exemplification of unity, charity, and fraternity
The Supreme Council has revised the exemplification ceremonials for men entering the Knight of Columbus. There will now be one exemplification combining all three degrees—charity, unity, and fraternity. Men completing the exemplification will be knights in the third degree.
The St. Thomas More Degree Team will begin presenting the new Exemplification of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity in April, on the second Tuesday of the month. Please register your candidate in the same manner using this link. Family and friends of the candidate are welcome and encouraged to attend the exemplification.
Plans are to continue to present the exemplification on the second Tuesday of each month (except August).
Please note that we have canceled the March degree exemplification as we transition to the new ceremonial.
