Samuel Cardinal Stritch
Assembly #205
Honor Guard Request


Step Out or Honor Guard Request

Step Outs/Honor Guard

When requesting a Step Out/Honor Guard, the Council should have their own members in attendance in new uniform, Suit and tie, or Ceremonial Baldric (yellow and white sash). The request should be made in a timely manner. If the Council does not have the Ceremonial Baldrics the Commanders will have some to loan for the event.

What events will we do a Step Out for as an Assembly?

A. When a Bishop/Cardinal is in attendance.
B. Confirmation
C. Installation of a new Pastor
D. Wakes or funerals of a Sir Knight and/or a Clergy (the approval of the family or surrogate is required)
E. Master request (Exemplifications and Parades)

Events that could be a Step Out for the local Council.

A First Communions
B. Local Events (parades and weddings)

The Commanders are responsible for organizing the step out. If there is no Commander in attendance a Faithful Navigator or Past Faithful Navigator should fulfill the Commanders responsibilities.

A step out request must be completed. You should double check all information before you submit the request. Approval of the request remains at the discretion of the Faithful Navigator.

Lastly, recent decisions have created new circumstances within the Knights. The K of C are experiencing changes with messaging a public image. There are less 4th Degree members with the New Uniform. This has imposed limitations within the ranks of The Honor Guard. With patience, we will see gradual growth in numbers, and will move forward as conditions warrant.
