More than 2,000 men joined the Knights of Columbus during the first ever online Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity held on April 16. The exemplification was hosted digitally by the Supreme Council as a unique opportunity for men to join the Order in a time of social distancing and minimizing mass gatherings.
To accommodate the many candidates and prospects who were unable to participate last week, we are hosting additional online exemplifications every week for the near future. The next ceremonies will be this Thursday, April 23 (see below).
The procedure to follow is very simple.
Grand Knights or Financial Secretaries invite eligible candidates for admission and advancement to participate by clicking on this link:
and forwarding the downloadable PDF invitation to them.
Instruct candidates to register for the exemplification of their choice by clicking on its associated link within the PDF. Tell them that their families are welcome, and encouraged, to observe. The next four scheduled ceremonies are:
APRIL 23, 2020
8:00 PM EDT
10:00 PM EDT
APRIL 30, 2020
7:00 PM EDT
