    Hello Gents,
    I’m quite excited as my friendly neighborhood DGIW is hosting an information session about appendant bodies in the area with representatives of each speaking including the invitational bodies.
    I have to say I’m very keen to hear more about the more secular bodies.

    Oh wow that sounds interesting. Every district should do that.... (maybe they already do)

    Yes indeed, or is it District...

    Here we don’t do the York rite and as the Scottish rite here from what I understand (I haven’t looked too deep into it for obvious reasons) requires you to profess to be a Christian, which I cannot honestly claim to be. However there are instances of people being allowed to join through dispensation.

    Really interested to know what else is in my area.

    Found it. District.
    You do have the individual bodies which, in the US, comprise the misnamed YR.

    Going down the rabbit hole of appendant/concordant bodies, are any or all of you familiar with the Hermetic Order of Martinists? It is primarily in UK but it's requirements are to be a MM in a lodge recognized under the UGLE or a GL recognized by the UGLE. You also have to be a member of the SRIA (Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia or SRICF in the U.S.) to be a member of this particular Order. It is by default a Christian Order since being a member of the SRIA requires being a believer in the Trinitarian Christian Faith.

    Yeah, it looks pretty interesting. I don't know of any Martinist Orders in the U.S. that are Masonic related. There are a few here but they are totally unrelated to Freemasonry to the best of my knowledge.

    I'e heard of the CBCS (but didn't think it had a Masonic prerequisite) but not too familiar with the Rectified Rite or Priory Orders. Are they all invite only, U.S. Masonically recognized? Very interesting.

    SRICF is by invitation only, and has very limited membership in each body.

    I learned of Martinists when I was considering AMORC membership as a part of my study of many fraternal and service orders before I selected Masonry as the one I would petition. As with plenty of Rosicrucian groups they have plenty of Masonic overlap among members and some amount of Masonic descent but are not currently Masonic.

    At our last stated meeting we had a presentation on the Allied Masonic Degrees. It was quite interesting. However the membership of each Council is limited to 27 members and they are an invitation only body, so interest in this group might just prove moot!

    Here if you express too much of an interest in an invitational only body you are forever disqualified from it. Not to say that you can't inquire about it but if you ask to be admitted you will never be invited.

    You can always petition to start another Council.
