Knights of Columbus and Fourth Degree Emblems

Fourth Degree

The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to promote a spirit of patriotism — among members and non-members — and to encourage responsible Catholic citizenship.

Knights who reach their Fourth Degree of membership are distinguished by being addressed as "Sir Knights." For the first decade of the degree's existence, these members would simply function within their councils. Gradually, they began to get together to conduct additional business after their regular council meetings.

In 1910, the first assemblies were formally instituted. Assemblies were groups of Fourth Degree Knights in a particular geographic area, who were drawn from the membership of one or more nearby councils. Fourth Degree Knights, then, as today, maintained dual membership — as Third Degree members of a council and as Fourth Degree members of an assembly. While remaining active in their councils, they also hold their own assembly meetings, elect their own officers, carry Third and Fourth Degree membership cards, and carry out their own activities and programs.

The 12 assemblies located in Wyoming are under the jurisdiction of the Wyoming District of the DeSmet Province of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus.
