Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Exemplification

Doesn't that photo look like Aaron, minus the 1970's wardrobe and carpet????

Today's post is all about my wonderful husband, Scott. Today is his 33rd birthday, but if you ask him, he's 29.

Yesterday Scott received his 4th degree with the Knights of Columbus. It was an all day, and I mean all day (8am-10pm) event.

Before the men (278 received their 4th degree) went into the room for the ceremony they had a parade so all of us ladies could see them and channel our inner paparazzo.

In addition to all the men receiving the 4th degree, 13 priests and a few deacons also received theirs. Father Jean, our pastor, was one of them.

Scott was towards the end of the group. I'll admit after awhile I was starting to get nervous, I was afraid that I missed him, but then I saw my handsome husband!

He looks great in a tux, huh? After the processional the doors were closed and guards (seriously) were placed at them. While he was in the ceremony the ladies had a luncheon and we raised money for the VA/VS. It was nice to sit and talk with the other wives of the Knights and learn more about the organization.

Here are some photos of the men of St. Faustina's after receiving their 4th degree:

After the luncheon we went to mass and then on to the dinner banquet. I believe there were over 700 people at the banquet which was amazing!

All in all it was a fantastic night and I cannot wait for the next one! I hope all of you had just as fabulous of a weekend!

PS Happy Birthday Scott! Love you so much and am so very proud of you, Sir Knight ;)

Happy Birthday and Congrats to your husband. Even though I was raised in the Catholic Church, I have never been told anything about the Knights. In fact my childhood church didn't even have them until I was an adult and had left. Have a good day! Love reading about the kids!
