What does it mean to be a Knight of Columbus? One of the primary requirements of being a Knight of Columbus is to be a "practical Catholic." To be a "practical Catholic" we must be in union with the Holy See. In general this union regulates a man's life to live in accordance with the teachings of Christ and the Church. Additionally, the "practical Catholic" endeavors to observe the commandments of God and of the Church. With this union, the Knights of Columbus have a officer position as a Lecturer. This Lecturer is not nominated and elected, but appointed by the Grand Knight. The Lecturer provides both educational and entertaining programs to the council. In order to provide members with informative and educational programs, he must be knowledgeable and aware of all council programming.
