Welcome to the
Missouri State Council Website
Greetings from State Deputy Bob Hawkins and your State Officers
One Family United
A Faster Way to Join – One of the most common objections to joining the Knights of Columbus is “I don’t have time.” Through Online Membership, a join process that can take as many as two months now takes five minutes.
A Digital Experience –This initiative provides a new membership experience that is tailored to younger men and busier men who may not yet be ready for council-based membership. This low-pressure, low-commitment and digital experience meets men where they are, helps to form them as Catholic men, and enables us to bring more men into the fold.
An Amplified Message – The Online Membership initiative is backed by a substantial marketing campaign that will find and work to convert prospective members.
Online Patriotic Exemplification
The Missouri Jurisdiction of the 4th Degree will be conducting an Online Virtual Exemplification of the 4th Degree (Patriotism) on Tuesday evening June 2, 2020 beginning at 7:00 pm Central Time. The Exemplification will be conducted via Zoom Conference.
This is a unique opportunity for brother Knights, especially those who have just received their 3rd Degree, to receive the honors of the 4th Degree, and to learn how to take the lessons previously learned in the earlier Degrees and apply them to our duty as Faithful Catholic Citizens, during a time where we are unable to conduct live Exemplifications gathered as a large group in a public setting. We have already had to postpone two Exemplifications and there will be no scheduled in person Exemplifications prior to August 29 in Perryville.
We are also, able to reduce the cost from the normal rate of $70 (plus optional $10 for suspender baldric upgrade) to $40 (plus optional suspender baldric upgrade).
If you wish to participate in the Virtual Exemplification, you will need to obtain a Form 4 (application to 4th Degree) from your Grand Knight or the Faithful Navigator of your local 4th Degree Assembly. The Faithful Navigator will get the proper signatures on the application and forward it to me with your application fee (as listed above). Once I receive the application and fee, I will register you for the Exemplification and you will receive an email explaining how to participate in the Degree.
If you do not have access, at this time to your Grand Knight or Faithful Navigator, feel free to respond to me and I will mail you the application form, if needed. I will need to have your application and fee no later than Sunday May 30 so that I can register you and get you a confirmation email.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
