In response to the needs of the times, during the 135th Supreme Convention at St. Louis, Missouri held last August of the current year, Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson announced the modernization of the Fourth Degree uniform based on the unanimous decision of the Supreme Council.

As stated on the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council website, the adoption of the new uniform is based on the aging fourth degree membership, the slowing growth of the Fourth Degree and the barrier caused by the old regalia especially to young men. However, the old regalia can still be worn until June 30, 2018.

“We commend all of the faithful Sir Knights who have proudly worn the Fourth Degree regalia, bringing much respect to the Order. With the new Fourth Degree uniform, recently approved by the Board of Directors, this honor and respect associated with Sir Knights will remain, and it will open the door more widely for a new generation to join their ranks. In a spirit of unity, let us assist with a smooth transition to this new uniform and encourage it to be worn with great dignity and pride”, the Good of the Order Committee stated.

This change can make the 4th degree uniform more comfortable for the members in the Philippines as it will be suitable for the changing weather in the country. (JSServiento)
