The Todos Santos Color Corps
COMMANDER: Sir Knight Rik Silva
The public appearance of the Patriotic Degree Knights as a Color Corps at religious and civic functions is an important activity of each assembly. Their colorful capes and chapeaux add dignity and the pride of Church and country to any event. By these public demonstrations their loyalties bring credit to themselves and to the Knights of Columbus.
Explanation of the colors of capes and chapeau worn by the Patriotic Degree when in full regalia, and what these colors signify. They are as follows:
|Supreme Master||Dark Blue|
|Vice Supreme Master||Light Blue|
|Color Corp Commander||Purple|
|General Membership||Red Cape-White Plumes|
Starting at the Supreme level, there is the Supreme Master and the Supreme Board of Directors. The next level of the structure is broken into provinces of which there are twenty. Each province is lead by a Vice-Supreme Master. The Vice-Supreme Master wears a light blue lined cape and chapeau. There are currently 15 provinces in the United States, 4 in Canada, 1 in Mexico and 1 in the Philippines. The province is then broken up into districts.
We are in the Saint Junipero Serra Province. Most districts are either an entire State or a section of a larger State (i.e. California has three districts – North, Central and South).
