Fourth Degree Chalice

      Each Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus may choose to have a chalice presented to a priest or bishop.  The Sir Knight's name is engraved on the bottom of the chalice.  A Chalice Ceremony is conducted during the funeral Mass of the Sir Knight.  Each time Mass is celebrated with the chalice, the Sir Knight is remembered in prayers.
