Joining the Knights of Columbus is not complicated. An outline of the process is below.
Assuming the applicant meets the minimum requirements (listed below), the applicant may submit a Form 100 to any council member to be considered for membership.
At the next council meeting, held on the second Tuesday of each month, the council members will discuss and vote for the acceptance of the applicant's membership request. Assuming this vote is passed, the applicant will be accepted during a scheduled First Degree Initiation; which are generally offered on the third Thursday of each month.
After completing the First Degree; the applicant will become a member of the Knights of Columbus as a First Degree Knight. Other degrees are available as well for those knights who wish to pursue them.
