Knights of Columbus Degree Ceremony + Enlarge
By The Most Rev. John C. Wester
Bishop of Salt Lake City

After Mass at Judge Memorial Catholic High School last Friday, I attended a degree ceremony in which Father Joseph Frez and I received the second and third degree of the Knights of Columbus. Each degree has a specific theme and the two themes associated with the second and third degrees are unity and fraternity. I found the program and ceremony to be very moving and helpful in my own desire to grow spiritually.  I was very impressed with the fact that the Knights of Columbus underscore the importance of prayer, charitable works, selflessness and service. I am grateful to the Knights, who took time out of their busy schedules, to lead Father Frez and me through the initiation process. I am very proud to be a Knight of Columbus (a member of Council 602) and I encourage young men throughout the diocese to investigate this wonderful Catholic organization. I have said it before and I will say it again: "The Knights of Columbus in Utah are second to none!"
