It is critically important that Knights receive the second and third degrees as soon as possible after the first degree so that they may learn important precepts of the Order and the Church. And, like watching a movie multiple times, it is important for ALL members to participate in the degree exemplifications as often as possible so as to incorporate the lessons therein into their own lives.
For a podcast on the purpose of degrees, visit http://iowaknightlife.org/iowa-knight-life-2015-09-02/
Degrees are exemplifications of what it means to be a Catholic and a Knight and are organized around the main principles of our Order (http://www.kofc.org/en/about/principles/index.html). The degrees reveal how the Knights of Columbus, as an organization, is different from other community service groups. The first degree is the introductory and initiation lesson with focus on the theological virtue of charity; whereas, the second (formation in the Faith and the Order) and third (Knighthood) degrees increase a member's knowledge of the Faith and understanding of the Order and move him toward full Knighthood. The fourth and final degree (http://iowakofc.org/page/4th-degree-membership) is the Order's Patriotic Degree and is emblematic of the Order by virtue of the characteristic chapeaux, capes, swords, etc., that fourth-degree members wear when participating in honor guards (http://iowakofc.org/page/4th-degree-color-corps-1).
Big thanks to DD John Zweibahmer and Ceremonials Chairman John Beckman for organizing this.
