TYoaBM – The First Meeting of the Year

Today was the first regular meeting of my Masonic Year.

I started the year off with the Installation meeting of the Rhodri Fawr Chapter of the Ancient and Accepted Rite (AKA Rose Croix).

This meeting was held at Elwy Hall Rhyl. Rhodri Fawr holds its regular meetings in the local Masonic Hall of the current Most Wise Sovereign, but always have their Installation meeting at Elwy Hall.

Rhodri Fawr is the Past Sovereign Chapter for the District of North Wales, and since I have only been a member for a couple of years I currently have no office, which means I have nothing to do except turn up, catch up with the members I have not seen over the summer break, enjoy the meeting and have fun in the festive board afterwards.

It made a nice change to actually start the year off easy without having a load of stuff to learn or organise, although I will let you into a secret, this meeting was the quiet before the storm.

The Ancient and Accepted Rite (Rose Croix)

The Ancient and Accepted Rite originated in France in 1754 and worked in the USA where a Supreme Council was formed in 1801.

The Supreme Council for England and Wales was established in 1845 under a patent from the Supreme Council of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States of America. The Rite consists of its own 33 Degrees entirely separate and distinct from any other Order.

The three Craft Degrees are accepted as equivalent to the first 3 Degrees of this Rite. Candidates for Perfection are taken from the 4º to 17º Degrees by name only, prior to being made Excellent and Perfect Princes Rose Croix in a detailed and beautiful 18º Degree ceremony. This is the only degree permitted to be worked in a private Rose Croix Chapter. Degrees above the 18º are awarded on merit after a brother has passed the Chair of his Chapter.
