    I've been invited and have accepted the invitation to join Knight of York College #150 in Long Beach, Ca. I'm looking forward to the degree this coming Sunday in San Diego. Many of my fellow Companions and Sir Knight's that I have made the York Rite journey with are going to be there as well. I'm super excited and honored to have this opportunity and an ready for an exciting Sunday afternoon.

    Congratulations! Can you explain what the York Rite College is and the degree? Are you invited after a certain number of years of service? Please forgive my ignorance as I went Scottish Rite but I'm really interested in joining the York Rite soon.

    "The York Rite Sovereign College of North America exists primarily to be of service to the York Rite of Freemasonry. Constituent colleges must declare fealty to the Grand Lodge of their respective jurisdictions. The pre-requisite for membership, which is by invitation only, is good-standing in all four York Rite bodies: Lodge, Chapter, Council and Commandery"


    You can find more information on this site.

    Congratulations Sir, you will enjoy it especially the lecture. As Governor of my College it is always good to see new members being initiated.

    Congratulations Companion and Sir Knight. The initiation ceremony is an interesting one and the Lecture is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it.

    I'm Seneschal for Tri-Valley #178 in Idaho.

    Follow the link provided, but essentially the York Rite College exists to assist the York Rite bodies (to include the Lodges) with ritual work and they have an emphasis on education. You have to be a member of a recognized Lodge, Chapter, Council, and Commandery then be invited.

    I like the formality of YRC meetings as well as anything. It's nice to go to a meeting where suits or tuxedoes are mandated. We had a guy show up wearing shorts to this month's Blue Lodge stated meeting. I attended a Master Mason degree at another lodge where the candidate was wearing a flannel shirt with the sleeves cut out. I'm not a snob, but I cringed in both incidences.

    It's California, from having been stationed out there I find that there is an attitude of see the world as revolving around them.

    You want to see dressed up. Go to a Prince Hall Lodge meeting, those Brethren are dressed to the nines.
