The First Degree

posted Sep 21, 2013, 11:35 AM by Knights of Columbus
All of us who are Knights have been through the First Degree of the order.  After all, it's the degree that makes us Knights.  But do all of us really remember the meaning and lessons of the First Degree.  Sadly, it seems many of us may not.  We can probably all tell anyone that the First Degree of our Order is charity, but what does it really mean as a Knight?  Well, I can't really go into that kind of detail on our web page but I can tell you this; The best way to remember and relive the lessons of the First Degree is to attend another initiation.  Of course I don't mean to attend as  a candidate again - we don't allow it.  What I do mean is that we should all attend a First Degree from time to time to support our new Brother Knights and to get a quick refresher on the lessons taught in the initiation. 
It just so happens that we are lucky enough to be hosting a First Degree initiation at our council hall on Tuesday, September 24 at 6:00PM. 
Stop by, support our newest Brothers, remember what it means to be a Knight!!
