Summer Super Degree Exemplification 2021
July 17, 2021 * 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
1960 Lexington Ave S, Mendota Heights, MN, USA
Worthy Sir Knights and Brother Knights,
As the Master of the Minnesota District, I am pleased to announce our Summer “Super Degree” Exemplification on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at the Holy Family Maronite Church, 1960 Lexington Ave So., Mendota Heights, MN. Hosted by the Fr. Timothy Vakoc Assembly #3335, SK George Kuzelka, Navigator. This is a one-day event where our State Ceremonial team will perform the Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity followed by the Fourth-Degree Ceremonial Exemplification of Patriotism. This means that you can bring eligible men into the order and they can complete all of their degrees in one day.
The schedule for the day will be:
08:00 am – 08:30 am Registration for the Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.
08:30 am – 09:30 am Ceremonial Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.
09:00 am – 10:00 am Registration for the Exemplification of Patriotism.
10:00 am – 12:30 pm Fourth-Degree Ceremonial Exemplification of Patriotism.
Lunch to follow – Host Assembly barbeque.
It’s never been easier or less expensive for candidates to join the 4th Degree. Candidates must be 3rd Degree Knights, complete a form 4 application and pay the registration fee ($50 for candidates and $30 for Deacons).
In honor of the Beatification of Blessed Michael McGivney, Priests will be Exemplified for Free.
This Exemplification will honor SK Rev. Michael S. Creagan, Pastor of the Church of St. Joseph, West St. Paul.
*new* In order to accommodate scheduling conflicts with a Saturday Exemplification (especially for our priests) as District Master, with approval of our Vice Supreme Master, I am pleased to announce that this exemplification will be an in-person Exemplification on the scheduled day and time, and can also be a virtual Exemplification anytime between Saturday, July 17th and Friday, July 23rd for any Assembly that has candidates who may be unable to attend in person. The same Assembly hosting guidelines apply that were in place for the Winter and Spring Exemplifications. If your Assembly plans to host a virtual exemplification, you must contact me to get the appropriate link.
The Exemplification of the 4th Degree is still regarded as a Secret Ceremonial by Supreme Council rules. Membership cards will be required and verified to ensure that only candidates and qualified 4th Degree Members are present during this ceremonial.
Attire for a candidate is black or dark suit with a white shirt and necktie (tuxedo may be worn also). Any candidate serving in the armed forces of his country, fulltime police and firefighters may wear their Class A or dress uniform. Clergy and Seminarians wear their normal dress. Fourth-Degree Members should wear the Uniform of the 4th Degree or are welcome to observe the Exemplification wearing a black or dark suit with a white shirt and necktie.
