Amarillo—All practicing Catholic men in the Diocese of Amarillo 18 years and older are encouraged to attend a First, Second and Third Degree Exemplification, sponsored by Knights of Columbus Council #1450 at St. Mary’s Cathedral. The exemplifications are set for tomorrow morning at 8:30.
“We encourage all current First Degree Knights to advance to Second and Third Degree,” said Larry Gray, Grand Knight of Council #1450. “This event is taking place specifically on Saturday, so that our priests will be able to attend. In most cases, these events are scheduled on Sunday, which usually precludes their attendance. We also invite all current Third and Fourth Degree Knights to attend and encourage those advancing in the Order.”
Those seeking First Degree Exemplification should arrive at the Cathedral, at 1200 South Washington, no later than 8:00am, with the Second Degree portion of the ceremony beginning at 10:30, followed by lunch and the Third Degree portion.
“Current Third and Fourth Degree members are asked to attend to support our brothers that are advancing,” said Gray. “We rarely have more than one of these events in any given year, so let’s not miss out on this opportunity.”
There is no charge for the First Degree Exemplification, and the combined cost of the Second and Third Degree ceremonies is $40 per person, which also includes lunch. For additional information, please contact Gray at 420-6408.
