Rose Croix District

of Warwickshire

Thank you for visiting this web site for the Ancient and Accepted Rite for England and Wales and its Districts and Chapters Overseas, District of Warwickshire. The Rite is more commonly known as Rose Croix but in reality that is only a part of the Order.

The necessary qualifications for membership are for the applicant to be of high moral standing, to be willing to sign the prescribed declaration that he professes the Trinitarian Christian faith and to have been a Master Mason for twelve  months or more. There is no requirement for an applicant to be a member of any other Order and nor does an interested Mason need to wait to be invited to apply for membership.

It is a thought provoking Order, the work of the Chapter being conducted in a quiet and gentle manner as is the enjoyment of the after proceeding at the festive board.

We welcome new members and you are invited to make contact with the Recorder, or a member known to you, of the particular Chapter that interests you. You are also more than welcome to make contact with the District Recorder or myself should you so wish.

This web site gives you the opportunity to read and download a pamphlet entitled What a Candidate for the Rose Croix should know.

For web site visitors who are  members of the Order the information on the site enables you to keep abreast of what is happening in the District and the Chapters.

Thank you for visiting and please do so on a frequent and regular basis!

A reminder to members; the current book of ritual is that dated 2008.

King Edward VII Rose Croix Chapter of Improvement in Birmingham

The Midlands Rose Croix Chapter of Improvement managed to secure one of the three travelling Demonstrations delivered by this Supreme Council authorised Chapter of Improvement at Moseley Masonic Hall on Wednesday 6th June 2018.  One hundred and fifty Princes filled the large Temple to generate an intimate atmosphere for the 11th degree: Sublime Prince Elect and Arcana of the 12th degree: Grand Master Architect.  Like all of the Intermediate Degrees, these demonstrations are based upon the Francken manuscripts held by Supreme Council and so the ritual has effectively been resurrected thanks to considerable input from Supreme Council.
