    My name is Brian and I am a Master Mason in Oklahoma and I belong to the Anadarko Masonic Lodge #21. I will be confering my York Rite degrees in a week and hopefully Scottish Rite this fall.

    The York Rite (along with the Scottish Rite) is one of two appendant Bodies of Masonry beyond the level of the Craft or Blue Lodge that is focused on expanding a Master Mason’s understanding of several important ideas introduced in the first three degrees of the Blue Lodge. It covers 10 degrees beyond the Master Masons degree that includes the Knights Templar degree.

    From a non-american perspective: The york rite is a collection of degrees that normally would be given by a few diffrent bodies. There are more then just two appendant bodies in masonry.

    Welcome Brother.

    It seems you are encountering the time when you discover that how your Jurisdiction does thing and how things are generally done in your Country are not the same universally. Being under the Jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania I learned this very quickly as we do EVERYTHING differently than anyone else.
