Two upcoming Brotherhood Degree Exemplifications present an opportunity for California Masons to witness Masonic degrees performed in officers’ native languages:
• San Gabriel: August 27 at 6:00 p.m. Learn more and RSVP.
• Elk Grove: August 28 at 5:00 p.m. Learn more and RSVP.
All brothers are encouraged to attend these special illustrations of worldwide Masonic rituals. Grand Master Charvonia will be present at both events.
“What we will witness is carried on in lodges across the globe every day, but rarely if ever pulled together in one place at one time,” says Charvonia. “One of the beauties of our ritual is that at the same time as we may not understand the words in a foreign language, we understand their meaning because it is the same or similar floor work and lessons.”
Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Masons are invited to attend both Brotherhood Degree Exemplifications. Both events will demonstrate an Entered Apprentice Degree. The cultures represented will vary by event. Please refer to the links above for RSVP information.
