New Deadline for Uniform
The deadline for implementing the use of the new Fourth Degree uniform has been extended to June 30, 2019.
Due to a heavy demand for the new Fourth Degree uniform that has led to backlog in fulfilling orders, the deadline for mandatory use of the new uniform has been extended one year to June 30, 2019. Supreme Knight Carl Anderson made this announcement during his address to the assembled state deputies this weekend in Washington, D.C.
As part of the strategy to attract younger men to join the Knights of Columbus -- which is vital to the continued success and strength of the organization -- the Order announced plans earlier this year to phase out the decades-old Fourth Degree uniforms in favor of a more modern look.
Demand for the new Fourth Degree uniform has far outpaced inventory and production capability of our manufacturer. To date nearly 8,000 uniforms orders have been received.
Due to the delays, the deadline for the 25 percent discount on ordering the new uniform was extended to Nov. 30, 2017.
Orders continue to ship out every day in the sequence that they were received, as soon as specific size combination of items becomes available. At the same time, the Order continues to work toward ways to increase the production while ensuring quality.
