Dear Prospective Members, 1st Degree, or 2nd Degree Brother Knights:

We are pleased to invite you to a special, online ceremony of advancement. This Knights of Columbus ceremony advances new and existing members through the lessons of Charity, Unity and Fraternity required of a full-fledge Knight of Columbus member (ie, 3rd Degree). These ceremonies, known as exemplifications, are normally done in person. However, we now offer this ceremony online for a limited time. By clicking on the button below, you will be able to register for and watch the ceremony, which takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. After viewing the ceremony, you will be a full, Third Degree Knight with voting privileges in our council!

This video is also available for current 3rd and 4th degree Knights who would like to view the new Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.


  • Open the registration form by clicking the blue “View On-Demand” button above.
  • Provide the required information, including your council number (Msgr. Raymond P. Kelly Council 10966 is at St. Jane Frances in Pasadena, MD).
  • Watch the 30-minute ceremony.
  • Please note that your family and friends are welcome to observe the ceremony with you.
  • If you are unable to complete the ceremony, clicking the link above will bring you back to the registration page where you can enter your email address in the “Already Registered? Log In Now” field and continue watching the ceremony.

We look forward to congratulating you as a new third-degree Knight of Columbus!
