Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson made the announcement during the Knights of Columbus 135th Supreme Convention held in St. Louis on August 1st.

“The Board of Directors has decided that the time is right for a modernization of the Fourth Degree Uniform,” Anderson explained. “On a limited basis, Assemblies may choose to continue using the traditional cape and chapeau for Color Corps at public events and Honor Guards in Liturgical Processions. However the preferred dress for the Fourth Degree, including Color Corps and Honor Guards, is the new Uniform of jacket and beret.”

This isn’t the first time the Knights of Columbus uniforms have changed. Originally, the 4th degree uniforms included white ties, a top hat, and tails.

Founded in 1882 by Fr. Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, CT, the Knights of Columbus has nearly 2 million members around the world. In 2016, members donated more than $177 million to charity and volunteered more than 75 million hours of service to their communities.
