Sir Knights are knighted just as they were in the past. The purpose of the Knight was to defend God, the church, their country, and their fellow man according to the code of chivalry.
Today, Sir Knights wear the regalia and carry the sword to honor Christ and his apostles, especially for religious and civic ceremonies. Even though the form of the regalia has changed, the purpose has not changed. The primary purpose of the Fourth degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism in the community at large. This is needed more than ever in today's environment.
The Honor Guard / Color Corps members exemplify all of the principles of our Order:
Charity. Unity. Fraternity. Patriotism.
