How to JoinWritten by GYR on January 26th, 2009
If you are a Master Mason interested in joining the York Rite, then we suggest you check out the list of Royal Arch Chapters in Florida, and find the Chapter that is located closest to you. Then get the contact information for that Chapter (the Chapter Secretary) and ask them about their local York Rite, when they meet, fees for joining, and when the next Degrees will be held.
The Secretary can help you on your way to joining the York Rite, and provide you a petition for membership. Once you complete your petition and pay your fees, your petition will be voted upon, and you will be informed when the first of the York Rite degrees (the Mark Master Mason) will be conferred.
If you cannot attend degrees at a local York Rite body, you may want to ask the Secretary about the many Degree Festivals held across the State, to see if you can receive your work then.
If you are not a Master Mason, then we recommend that you contact the Grand Lodge F&AM of Florida for more information about joining the Craft.
