We are Knights of Columbus

What is the Fourth Degree?
  • Any Third Degree member in good standing 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.
  • Bienville Assemby 314 meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m.  Meetings are usually held at Marquette Council or at St. Dominic's Council in Lakeview.
