The degrees and orders of the York Rite are conferred by local Chapters, Councils and Commanderies in the intimate setting of local lodge rooms, with the added dramatic benefits of live theater.
Currently, the Southern Arizona York Rite Bodies (Safford, Sierra Vista, Tucson) hold a Winter Degree Festival in the 1st Quarter of each calendar year. Degrees and orders grouped by body and are held at each of the locations. This allows candidates and members to visit and experience the other York Rite bodies in our area.
In addition, statewide or area festivals are called from time to time at announced locations where all the degrees and orders can be received in one day, or during a weekend.
The York Rite is open to all Master Masons.
