JAN 2015 4th Degree Exemplification Packet

Worthy Faithful Navigators and Grand Knights,
The next scheduled Fourth Degree Exemplification will be occurring in Tucson on January 10, 2014 at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel. Link to DoubleTree 

The Fourth Degree is the most visible arm of the Knights of Columbus and represents the last principal of the order: Patriotism. This includes promoting responsible citizenship and love and loyalty to their country. 
Members of the Fourth Degree are asked to participate to serve in the Honor Guard, which serves at civic and religious functions. 
All 3rd Degree members are highly encouraged to further their advancement in to the order by becoming a Fourth Degree member. Members who wear the emblem of the degree are committed to conduct themselves honorably as Catholic gentlemen in both their private and public life as well as patriotically for the good of the country. The Fourth Degree sword represents their reverence for the Eucharist and the Pope, Bishops, and hierarchy of the church, and displays publicly his willingness to protect the Church and Priests. 

The host assembly is Archbishop Daniel J. Gercke Assembly 16 with the Class Honoree Immediate Past State Deputy Bryant Sayers. Link to registration packet. You will need Adobe Reader to view. 

At this time when our way of life is being challenged both locally and globally, we ask that all men rise up to answer the call of becoming a Fourth Degree member to show that we will publicly defend both our rights and religious responsibilities. 

Vivat Jesus!
Bob Holsinger
Arizona State District Master

4th Degree Registration Chairman

Military Scholarship Fund

Another milestone for AZ as we have exceeded our 2014 goal and surpassed the 30k mark I had hoped for. Of course this are the numbers that I am aware of and our Worthy Supreme Master advised me that we are about 3k off so we are some where around 33k.  What a great group of Brother Knights we have in the great State of Arizona.
 
2014 goal $4,000.00 actual $5,545.00 and overall we are at $30,019.25. See attached 

Yours in Christ

Tucson Knights in Action

The Father Henry Miller Assembly #2308 Sir Knights along with their Families and friends in Tucson are in line to create their own 'Breakfast-omelet-in-a-baggie.'  You could add; diced ham, onions, cheese, and peppers to make your own omelet. After the 'baggie' contents were cooked in a pot of boiling water, you could make into a burrito using freshly made tortillas!

Then in a symbolic gesture of our Assemblies support for our Troops, we had breakfast for dinner at about the same time our troops were eating breakfast overseas!

This fundraiser was combined with others, which allowed the Father Henry Miller Assembly #2308 to present a check for $1,500.00 to the Veterans Administration Volunteer Services (VAVS) in Tucson.

AZ Knights in Action

 Newly appointed Marshal for Southern Arizona, Drew Mansager, address nearly 40 Sir Knights at Tucson International Airport to greet Archbishop Bressan of Trent, Italy.


Six Assemblies from Tucson, Vail and Green Valley got to know each other and practice uniformity in execution of the manual of the sword.


Sir Knights listen to instruction before the arrival of the Archbishop of Trent Italy who met with the Kino Society, promoting the cause for canonization of Fr. Eusebio Kino.


Tucson Airport was gracious enought to provide Sir Knights plenty of room to practice.  Many Sir Knights met each other for the first time.


Archbishop Bressan was very appreciative of the welcome the Knights of Columbus gave him.



Archbishop Bresson, and his entourage from Italy, celebrate with Honor Guards members from Gerke, Kino, Weber, Miller, Hughes and Kapaun Assemblies in the Southern Arizona/Tucson area.
