ORDER OF COLUMBIAN MERIT
At the beginning of the 1980's, the New Brunswick Knights of Columbus State Council created an award known as the MEDAL OF MERIT. This Medal is the highest honour bestowed upon a Brother Knight by the State Council.

The Medal of Merit is given to a member who, by his sustained efforts, has contributed meritoriously and significantly to the principles advocated by the Knights of Columbus in advancing the Order within the Province of New Brunswick.

The recipient must be a member in good standing of a Council for at least 10 years and must have received the recommendation of his parish priest or Council Chaplain. He must have been nominated in writing by his Council. Nominations should be received no later than the 15th of January of each year by the State office 39 Marmen Avenue, Edmundston, N.B., E3V 2H3.
