Any Third Degree member in good
standing, one year after the anniversary of his First Degree, is eligible
for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree
is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship
and a love of and loyalty to the Knights' respective countries through active
membership in local Fourth Degree groups (called "assemblies"). Certain members
of the Fourth Degree serve as honor guards at civic and religious functions,
an activity that has brought worldwide recognition to the Knights of Columbus.
The Ladies Auxiliary's main function
is to SUPPORT the men and the council. They do this primarily by providing
help at events, cooking for events and providing monetary help. They also
generally do help with setting up and beautifying the hall for events.
Under the guidance of Christian
Brother Barnabas McDonald (1865-1929), the first Columbian Squires circle
was instituted in 1925. Membership in the Squires is for Catholic boys between
the ages of 12 and 17. Squires' activities are many, varying from spiritual
to active service for the Church and community. Each circle elects officer
members from their own rank, teaching skills of leadership and responsibility.
