THE ORDER OF
THE KNIGHTHOOD VIGIL
No one can become a full Knight of St. Tarcisius without participating in, and successfully completing, the Knighthood Vigil held each year for any Knight's Apprentice the Friday after Easter. The picture above is of six young men during their Knighthood Vigil steeped in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament with Deacon Steve Nguyen.
The Knights of St. Tarcisius served the Thanksgiving Mass of Deacon Steve Nguyen, and four of them acted as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, bringing our Lord to the faithful as St. Tarcisius did more than 1,700 years ago.
ORDER OF THE KNIGHT
The next step on the path to Knighthood is found in the Squire's initiation into the Order of the Knight's Apprentice. During this year, Apprentices take on the tools that will help prepare him for full Knighthood a year later. Below you find basic information regarding the requirements for entering the Order of the Knight's Apprentice along with the expectations of each Apprentice.

They will help Squires hone their serving skills, and assist Apprentices in their use of the tools they received at their initiation into the Order of the Knight's Apprentice. Knights are also trained as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and are expected to act in this ministry as Knights.
