Why Join

Membership of the Order implies a desire for further advancement in Masonic knowledge. Its degrees will be found to amplify the teachings of Craft Masonry within a Christian context.

Candidates must be Master Masons for at least one year and be able to produce Clearance Certificates for all the Lodges of which he is, or has been, a member. Those seeking membership from Constitutions outside the Grand Lodge of England should seek advice prior to making application.

On joining the Order, each candidate has conferred on him the 18th Degree. The Intermediate Degrees (4th to 17th) are conferred by name but can be witnessed at demonstrations regularly held.

Again quoting from the Supreme Council paper - “As a member of a Chapter, the candidate will be invited, over a period of years, to progress through a number of offices in succession (should he so wish) before attaining the Chair, as in other Masonic Orders.”

The learning requirements of these subordinate offices are limited. The ritual of the Chair requires more work but can be shared so that the demands of the office are reduced and the pleasure of the year enhanced. In the District of Northamptonshire & Huntingdonshire, those in the Chair of a Chapter are actively encouraged to visit other Chapters to cement the harmony and fraternal union which exists between them. Promotion to higher degrees depends upon Sovereigns carrying out their ceremonies in a proper manner without recourse to ritual books and having satisfactorily enthroned their successor.

Interested?

Throughout England and Wales and certain Districts and Chapters Overseas the Order is governed by the Supreme Council 33° whose headquarters are known as Grand East and are located at No. 10, Duke Street, St. James's, London SW1Y 6BS.
