Just wondering...

Does anyone have a copy of their inititation handy? All, or in part?

Wow, I've never heard of this group before. Sounds interesting:

"A fraternity for black catholics, named after a st. that converted a great number of slaves".

I don't know or have the initiation, hopefully someone else does, or knows more about this group.

This is also new to me, can you tell us more about them if you find anything.

Because they are so similar to the KCs in appearance, structure, and goals, my guess is that the ceremonials are very similar, but I'd like to know for sure.

I've read that about 25% of the 100,000 members are not African-American. My guess that worldwide, probably a greater number of African-Americans are in the KC than the KPCs; ironic due to the original purpose of the founding of the Order.

I've also been led to believe that a good number of the KPC members are also KC members.

KPC dues and assessments are also very high -- 2-6 times that of KCs; probably another reason why their numbers aren't that high. That's a lot of moolah per year for a fraternity.

Here are some photos of the KPC 4th Degree Color/Honor Guard:

Some others can be seen at the KPC website.
