Tom Monahon,

Fourth Degree District Master,

South Carolina District

De Soto Province

 

Brother Sir Knights, 

I attended a meeting with the Vice Supreme Master Bob Anderson and all the Masters of the De Soto Province this weekend where the new uniform was discussed.  Here are the exact word [with my edits for brevity] to the amended “Laws and Rules Governing the Fourth Degree of the Knights of Columbus.” 

 

“Section 40 (a) The official regalia when serving in a Color Corps (Honor Guard or Color Guard) is the same as the official dress of a member [i.e. the new uniform] or a black tie, plain white tuxedo shirt, black cummerbund, black socks, plain black shoes, black tuxedo … with the following additions: ….[cape, chapeaux, white gloves, and sword.]”

 

This is the best and most current information of the requirements. I know the Supreme website states that after June 30, 2018, “only the new uniform should be worn.”  What this means and how it will be implemented, I do not know.  I do know that true Sir Knights hold unwaveringly to what is right and honorable and will continue to serve the Church and keep God in the civic arena.  

 

The fact is that the new uniform is here and it is here to stay.  I encourage any Sir Knight who is considering the new uniform to order it before the end of September 2017, while Supreme is offering a 25% discount.  Order from www.knightgear.com.

 

The 75th South Carolina District Exemplification is scheduled for September 30 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Charleston.  Time is short to recruit new Fourth Degree members. Candidates shall wear a black or dark (blue or grey) business suit with black socks with black shoes, white dress shirt and tie. Tux meet this requirement.  Sports coats and slacks are not allowed. I encourage all Sir Knights to come and wear their regalia.

 

Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the unborn, pray for us
