Other Meetings and Events
In addition to private Chapter meetings listed on the District Calendar, there are other important Rose Croix meetings and social events.
Candidates promoted to the 30° and higher degrees are invested at ceremonies conducted by members of the Supreme Council at the Grand East or headquarters of the Order, at 10 Duke Street St James’s London. The dates of Supreme Council meetings are listed on the District calendar.
These are very special occasions followed by dinner at the Overseas League nearby in St James’s.
The Inspector General and District Recorder look forward to welcoming and celebrating with candidates these important milestones in their Rose Croix careers.
The 4th to the 17th Degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Rite are conferred on new members of the Order by name. There is however a full ceremony for each. Under the authority of the Supreme Council, these ceremonies are demonstrated by the King Edward VII Rose Croix Chapter of Improvement. Each year one or two of the degrees are demonstrated in London, with further demonstrations at Masonic Centres around the country hosted by the local District. Any Rose Croix Mason is elegible to attend.
Dates and locations of the demonstration are published the Supreme Council 33° Yearbook. Details and applications forms may be obtained directly from the District Recorder or Chapter Recorders to whom they are circulated.
Each spring The Inspector General chairs an administration meeting to which the Sovereign, Recorder and Director of Ceremonies of each Chapter is invited to discuss the operation of the Order in the District.
The District also hosts two social events each year.
