Many Parish Knights of Columbus Join Ranks of the 4th Degree

On June 13, 2015, almost twenty members of the St. Philip and St. Clare Knights of Columbus Council #11825 travelled to Cornwall, Ontario to be explemified into the 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus, the highest “rank” within the fraternal order. This degree represents patriotism, the last of the four (but certainly not the least) concepts that underpin what the Knights of Columbus stand for. It is the pinnacle of Knighthood, where its members live, serve and protect the Truth of our Catholic faith.

Afterwards, everybody came back to the St. Philip Parish Hall for the Knights year-end banquet, and to celebrate and recognize the new, and existing, Sir Knights of Council #11825.
