Prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we used to have in-person Exemplification Ceremonies where new Patriotic Degree Candidates entered into the Patriotic Degree. These ceremonies were usually held at a convention-worthy site, and included such locations as the Princess Royale in Ocean City, Maryland. Such Exemplifications were presented locally at least twice per year.
With the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the order has modified its approaches to Exemplifications. Currently, they are being held virtually, on a periodic basis, so that we can protect our candidates and participating Sir Knights from undue exposure to the risk of being exposed to the Covid-19 virus. The schedule of such Exemplifications can be obtained from any Grand Knight, or any Council member who happens to also be a Patriotic Degree Sir Knight.
