Melbourne Council No. 38

Meets Second (2nd) Thursdays - ODD Months (Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sep, Nov)

CRYPTIC MASONRY

Cryptic Masonry holds the key to much of our tradition and history. It is the completion of the Symbolic Lodge and the Royal Arch; It clears the vision for much that has been seen dimly; It is both revealing and reverent.

Happy is the man who descends beneath the hollow earth, having behold these mysteries, for he knows the end as well as the divine origin of life; and thrice happy are they who descend to the shades after having behold these sacred rites; for they alone have life in Hades while all other suffer there every kind of evil.

Melbourne Commandery No. 41

Meets Second (2nd) Thursdays - EVEN Months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec)

CHIVALRIC MASONRY

The Order of the Temple, the crowning glory of York Rite Masonry, has been characterized by many as the most solemn and impressive experience in Masonry. Here the aspirant progresses step by step, the way trod by Jesus of Nazareth until the empty tomb joins with the sprig of acacia to teach that at last we shall dwell forever in realms of life and light eternal.

The stated Conclaves of this Commandery shall be at 7:30 P.M. on the Second Thursday of February, April, June, August, and October at a place specified in the Warrant or Charter or otherwise provided by Law.
