Worthy Brother Knights,

Life will not get any easier than this to join the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus: NO COST, NO LONG TRAVEL or HOTEL EXPENSE and it’s FREE.

The 2018 Fourth Degree Exemplification will be held here in Fond du Lac on Saturday, April 7th at the Holiday Inn.  This is the first time in many years that Fond du Lac Assembly has held a Degree here.  The previous one was in the early 1970’s.

This year’s Exemplification will have two honorees; Fr. Neil Zinthefer and Frank Wiesenberger.  Fr. Neil is a member of our Assembly 1211 and serves as our Faithful Friar for the Assembly.  Fr. Neil is also a Past State Chaplin for the State of Wisconsin and was the Faithful Friar for the Fourth Degree Exemplifications for many years.  Our Assembly is honored to have Fr. Neil as an honoree for this year’s Exemplification.

Previously a 4th Degree Knight had to purchase a tux for the Exemplification but that is no longer the case.  The required dress is either a Black or Dark (Blue or Gray) business suit with black socks, black shoes, tie.  For those in the Service, Police Officers or Fire Fighters a Class A dress uniform may be worn.  If you wish, our Assembly does have several tuxes available for you to purchase at a very reasonable price if you wish to wear a Black tux with bow tie, black cummerbund (NO VEST) and black footwear.

Along with your Exemplification Degree, your evening banquet at the Holiday Inn is also included at no charge.  There is a charge for your spouse or guest of $35.00 for the banquet.   If your wife or guest would like to join the other ladies for a Ladies Luncheon it will be $20.00.

If you wish to stay at the Holiday Inn (your expense), room rates are $109.00/night for double occupancy.   The rate includes a full hot breakfast each morning and a complimentary beverage for each adult per night (in the lounge).  If you wish to stay call the Holiday in directly at 920-923-1440 and ask for “Knights of Columbus Room Block”.

Any member of the Third Degree member in good standing is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree.  Please give consideration to join us as a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus.  Contact one of the Officers listed below for your membership application form.  Remember, Life will not get any easier than this, NO COST, NO LONG TRAVEL or HOTEL EXPENSE and it’s FREE

Faithful Navigator, Assembly 1211

Fond du Lac, WI chapter

Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.
