09/16/2017 York Rite Symposium from Texas Lodge of Research

York Rite Symposium

Most Excellent High Priest, Excellents King and Scribe, and Companions all,

Texas Lodge of Research, in conjunction with the Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Texas, is holding its first ever York Rite Symposium on 16 September 2017 in Waco, Texas. This is an opportunity for companions to further their knowledge of the Rite by participating in an afternoon of learning.

Beside the usual papers given at a Texas Lodge of Research meeting, the Grand Royal Arch Chapter is sponsoring an essay contest specific to York Rite Masonry (please see enclosed for essay rules). Topics on any aspect of the York Rite -- Chapter, Council, Commandery, or other York Rite appendant bodies -- are welcome. Essays must be received by 15 August 2017 for consideration. Certain essays may be selected to be published in the annual Transactions of Texas Lodge of Research (subject to approval of the Editorial Commitee). NO ESSAY will entitle a writer to Full membership in Texas Lodge of Research. For more information on how to become a Full Member, please see www.texaslodgeofresearch.org .

If five [5] or fewer essays are submitted, a prize of $500 will be awarded for the top essay. However, if six [6] or more are submitted, two prizes of $500 will be awarded. The schedule for the Symposium is as follows:

York Rite Symposium, 16 September 2017
