    The Four Items Every Council Needs

    To conduct the new exemplification ceremony, you'll need these items.

    2/1/2020

    Ceremonial Baldrics
    The presiding officer, three presenters, warden and the investing officer are required to wear baldrics during the exemplification.

    Crucifix
    A large, wooden crucifix is held up during the ceremony. A wooden crucifix is available from Knights Gear and similar crucifixes are available from the English Company or Roger Sauvé, the Knights of Columbus’ official ceremonial suppliers in the United States and Canada.

    Cable and Fibers
    Fibers (small strings) and a white cable, approximately 1 inch in diameter and 2 feet in length, are used to symbolically demonstrate the virtue of unity. Cables and fibers can be ordered from the Knights of Columbus’ official ceremonial suppliers.

    Candidate Kit (#531)
    Each kit includes a rosary and emblem pin, both of which are presented during the exemplification. Councils should order one kit per candidate.
