Serving the Community and Promoting Patriotism and Civics, The Knights of the Fourth Degree was first exemplified on February 22, 1900, in New York City.
Our purpose is to build and encourage active Catholic citizenship and to promote Patriotism. There are over 300,000 Knights of the Fourth Degree out of over 1.6 million Knights of Columbus world-wide.
Our Knights work with our Veterans in the Durham Regional VA Hospital
Assembly Knights join with members of the C.V. Cummings Chapel Hill Post 9100, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, to sponsor social activities with hospitalized veterans and care for homeless veterans.
Wounded Warriors and the Military Order of the Purple Heart Project. We also hold a special fundraiser each year on Veterans Day Weekend for the benefit of hospitalized amputees at Ft. Bragg and Camp Lejeune. This is a province-wide project. We pass the hat after each weekend mass. All collected funds are passed to our Wounded Warriors via the Military Order of the Purple Heart as a gift of the congregation at St. Thomas More Church. The Military Order of the Purple Heart matches the collected funds dollar for dollar! Learn more
