York Rite Festivals

The Summer York Rite Festivals will soon be here!

Our York Rite Bodies are growing, and these summer festivals present a great opportunity for interested Master Masons to consider advancing in the York Rite by receiving the various York Rite degrees, and for our member Companions and Sir Knights to attend and refresh their memory of the degrees and orders. There are 4 Chapter degrees (Royal Arch Masons), 3 Council degrees (Cryptic Masons), and 3 Commandery Orders (Knights Templar). The festivals are all held on Saturdays, and each York Rite Body will confer its respective degrees or orders at its one-day festival.

Here are the Festival dates for your planning:

  • Chapter Degrees: Saturday, June 2, 2018 –in Akron, CO (Pasture Degrees)
  • Council Degrees (pick just one):
    • Saturday, June 16, 2018 – in Grand Junction, CO
    • Saturday, June 23, 2018 – in Sterling, CO
  • Commandery Orders: Saturday, July 14, 2018 – Masonic Park in South Fork, CO

Any Master Masons interested in learning more about York Rite Masonry or potentially becoming a candidate at these summer festivals should contact either York Rite officer below for a petition and instructions. Participation as a candidate in any of these festivals must be in the order listed above, and is initiated by submitting a petition to our York Rite Bodies before May 1st for approval. Details regarding registration, meals, etc. for Candidates, Companions, and Sir Knights planning to attend will be available later this spring and will be provided at our meetings and in the Trestle Board.
