V v nice. Am only craft at the moment. Once I have gone through the chair I will go royal arch. Then....
Mark masonry seems interesting with the follow on royal ark mariner but knights Templar and red Cross of Constantine also seem nice. Any ideas?
That's very cool! In a real castle!
And for the love of God, it's Prince HALL. You are going to be very embarrassed when you Google what a Prince Albert is. LOL
Incidentally, in Blue Lodge news: our Grand Lodge voted this past weekend to blanketly-accept ALL regular Prince Albert Lodges in the US, and all future Prince Albert Lodges which are accepted as regular by their respective Grand Lodges! This was voted in by the overwhelming majority. Previous to this, several years ago, we had voted to accept all in-state Prince Albert Lodges and a few others here and there.
I was very saddened by the (vast majority of) brethren who voted against the recommendation to accept all current and future regular Prince Albert Lodges. I don't know their reasonings, as they hadn't submitted any discussion when given the opportunity, but I hope it was not for color of skin.
My mistake, the total number of us making the pilgrimage tomorrow night is 27. However... We were just informed that, since this is the 200th anniversary of the Grand Encampment, we will be automatically given the jewel created to commemorate such! This totally adds another layer of coolness!
Tomorrow night is Order of the Temple (last degree in York Rite). There're 31 or 32 of us going through (17 in our current cohort, and the Spring cohort had decided to hold off on this last degree until tomorrow for reasons below). This shall be a night of deep Spiritual growth for many of us.
The venue for this will be a unique place: an actual castle built in the early 1800's after English versions, complete with moat, towers, islands in the moat, etc.
Honestly, I choose York Rite because it was the first to have a "Fall Festival" thingy to join. Also, I was planning on it anyhow as I've always wanted to be a part of the Knights Templar, and that seems more connect with it than does Scottish Rite. I plan on doing Scottish Rite, as well.
Brethren, where is the best place to purchase a Knights Templar coat jacket? I presume my current tux pants would work with the jacket?
Edward, if you are in the blue lodge the York Rite is just a natural extension of it. Then the YR opens up like a tree to all kinds of other branches.
