The York Rite is one of the oldest Masonic bodies and the name originates from York of England. It consists of three parts:

the Royal Arch Chapter (including Olympus Chapter 27),
the Council of Royal and Select Masters (including Naval Council 11), and
the Knights Templar Commandery (including Malta 18).

Members of York Rite are Masons and it is there we tie into Masonry. To be a member of Knights Templar, the candidate must be a Christian.

The Royal Arch Chapters contribute to the Children's Heart Foundation. The Councils of Royal and Select Masters contribute to the Medical Research Foundation (for diseases effecting the blood vessels). The Knights Templar Commanderies contribute to the Knights Templar Eye Foundation.

Refer to the Links page in the menu for information concerning the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Washington, the Grand Council of Royal and Select Masters of Washington (also called Cryptic Masons), and the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Washington.

We meet in the Victory Memorial Temple in Bremerton, WA on the fourth Monday of each month. The Commandery meets at 8:00; the Council meets at 7:00, and the Chapter meets at 6:00. We do not meet in July or August. We look forward to seeing you there!
