Knights of Columbus Sealy
4th Degree Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. It is dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and Catholic public policy positions, and actively defending Catholicism in various nations. For its support of the Church and local communities, as well as for its philanthropic efforts, Pope John II referred to the Order as the "strong right arm of the Church." The Order explicates the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism to its membership through a progression of exemplification ceremonies.
