    The majority of grand lodges in the USA and the Scottish Rite have extended fraternal relations to our Prince Hall brothers. I was wondering if the same had been done within the York Rite?

    I don't know the answer to this here in Kentucky but will find out. I wish that I had seen this forum yesterday as we had our Chapter and Council meetings last night.

    Yes, it has. I was just initiated Mark Master in my Prince Hall Lodge just last week.

    I checked on this last night at my monthly Chapter / Council meeting. I was told that PHA Grand Chapter / Council and the Kentucky Grand Chapter / Council usually go along with whatever the PHA Grand Lodge and Kentucky Grand Lodge do in this regard. As the two GLs recognize each other and have visitation it is ASSUMED that this goes for both Chapters and Councils. However, the PHA and Kentucky Chapters / Councils are due to officially discuss this matter at this year's annual meeting.

    See my understanding is that the state grand bodies are governed by a national Grander body..lol...and if the national body says yes then it’s yes. However you still gotta follow ur GL rules. So just cause grand chapter says yes doesn’t mean you can if you gl says no

    The Grand Chapter and Grand Council usually go with what the Grand Lodge does in this instance in each state because the Grand Master can wipe the Council and Chapter out in his state with the stroke of his pen.

    Visitation has happened informally between the york Rite of both sides in North Carolina. However, a few months ago, the Prince Hall York Rite voted to recognize our sides york Rite. If all goes well, we should reciprocate that during our Grand session at the end of the month. I wish I could join Prince Hall appendant Bodies (Scottish Rite being one of them , they’re more localized then ours are) but alas , they don’t allow dual membership.
