Rose Croix Chapter opening in Corby

We are excited to announce that we will be holding the

Consecration of Heritage Chapter Rose Croix    No 1220

here at the Corby Masonic Centre on Monday September 11th 2023.

With over 80 guests coming along from all over the country to witness this rare event, with everyone sitting down afterwards to a meal and to enjoy the fellowship of fellow members of Rose Croix.

This is the result of many hours of work by the Corby Masonic Centre secretary and Group officer for Corby, WBro Steve Burton.

WBro Steve has spent the last 9 months planning and discussing this event with the Supreme Council in London, organising the changes and sourcing the requirements in the Corby Masonic Centre for this new Chapter.

History of Rose Croix

As the craft degrees have evolved, so too have independent Orders of Freemasonry and rituals peculiar to them. Prominent among them in England and Wales is the Ancient and Accepted Rite, whose Chapters are grouped into Districts and administered by a Supreme Council, which is also responsible for certain Districts and Chapters overseas. It chooses to accept the three craft degrees of UGLE as a qualification for entry into a Chapter, rather than administering entry degrees of its own. Progression to further degrees is then within Chapters, and in ceremonies generally conducted by the Supreme Council itself. The Rite is frequently referred to as the ‘Rose Croix’, although this is only one of its degrees.

Who can Join ?

All candidates for membership of the Ancient and Accepted Rite under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Council for England and Wales must profess the Trinitarian Christian faith and have been Master masons for at least one year in UGLE, or have joined a lodge under UGLE from a recognised Grand Lodge. Affiliation of candidates owing allegiance to other Supreme Councils is permitted only in exceptional circumstances (subject to prior enquiry to the Grand Secretary General).
