About the

C. Frye Haley Memorial

Priory Order of Knighthood

The Order of Knighthood is a dedicated extension of the Order of DeMolay and gives older DeMolays (17 to 21 years of age) an opportunity to organize social activities and has also provided Kentucky DeMolays training which is necessary and crucial in building dynamic and productive chapters. The Order of Knighthood is organized into a subordinate unit known as a Priory and has its own ritual, officers, meetings and investitures.

The Order of Knighthood made its debut in 1946, when it's ritual was exemplified before the Grand Council, now known as DeMolay International's Supreme Council.

Through the years, the activities of the Knights have consisted of social and educational programs geared to older DeMolays, with a special emphasis on career planning and coed activities.

The official name of the Order of Knighthood is "The Chivalric Knights of the Holy Order of the Fellow Soldiers of Jacques DeMolay". It is not an honorary degree or award, but a working body whose purpose is to extend fellowship and serve the Order of DeMolay.

The C. Frye Haley Memorial Priory made its debut in Kentucky in 1970. The Priory meets at every Conclave and an investiture is held when needed. Dad James Ball is the Priory Advisor and assists the Priory at their meetings and investitures.

The main functions of a Priory are to:
(1) Extend and assist the Order of DeMolay and its Chapters.
(2) Maintain the active interest of older DeMolays.
(3) Provide an interesting program for the Priory members.
(4) Above all to provide and maintain a proper example for all DeMolays
