Recent 4th Degree Exemplifications - November 2019

In November 2019, the 1st and 2nd NJ Districts each held an Exemplification of the Fourth Degree, welcoming a total of 217 new Sir Knights into Fourth Degree Assemblies in New Jersey.

Congratulations to our Fourth Degree District Masters, Paul Pinkman and Christopher A. Tomasello, and all of their staff for their outstanding job in organizing and conducting these two Exemplifications of the Fourth Degree!

All Third Degree Knights are encouraged to join the Fourth Degree.  The Fourth Degree is the highest degree of the Order.  The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism and to encourage active Catholic Citizenship.
