Who are the Sir Knights?
The Fourth Degree of the Knights of Columbus represents the patriotic dimension of this fraternal organization. Comprising dedicated members known as "Sir Knights," this degree emphasizes principles of patriotism, unity, and the defense of the Catholic faith. Sir Knights participate actively in events that promote civic responsibility and a deep sense of national pride. Distinguished by their unique regalia, including a beret and sword, members of the Fourth Degree embody the ideals of the Knights of Columbus in both their religious and civic duties. Through their commitment to patriotism and active Catholic citizenship, the Fourth Degree contributes to the organization's overarching mission of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism.
