   In January 1989, two Brother Knights, Daniel I. Metz and John E. Sweeney, both Past Grand Knights, petitioned the Worthy Master, SK Richard Kellerman to start a new Fourth Degree Assembly. In a short time, they had twenty-one Sir Knights from other Assemblies in the Harrison Council area and twelve new candidates to start a new Assembly. Permission was granted from Supreme Council on May 9, 1989: thus, Most Holy Rosary Assembly #2170, Harrison Ohio was chartered.

Our Organization's History

   On February 22, 1900, the first exemplification of the Fourth Degree was held in New York City. The ritual added patriotism to the three original principles of the Order: charity, unity and fraternity. Any Third Degree member in good standing is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the Knights' respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups called assemblies. Fourth Degree members must retain their membership as Third Degree members in the local council to remain in good standing.
