Welcome to the website for the Red Cross of Constantine North & East Yorkshire. I hope that you will find it to be informative and will bring you up to date with Red Cross of Constantine matters that have recently taken place or are planned for the future.
I was honoured to be installed as the Intendant General for the North & East Yorkshire Division on 22nd November 2014 by the Grand Sovereign, Most Illustrious Knight Graham Flight at the Masonic Hall, Middlesbrough. It is a great privilege to be the Intendant General and I will do all I can to make the Order a success. However, let me encourage our members to attend their Conclaves and assist as much as is possible so that we can all achieve the satisfaction that this Order can offer.
People viewing this website probably fall into three categories:
- To those who are “just looking”, I hope that this will give a little insight into another aspect of Freemasonry. Your first step will be to join a Craft Lodge near to where you live and progress from there.
- If you are already a Mason, you may be thinking of joining us now or, possibly, at some time in the future. Hopefully if you click on the section “Why Join?” in the menu, you will find answers to any queries that you may have.
- If you are a member of the Order then I hope that this will become a regular website for you to visit to obtain details of news and upcoming events to enable you to place you masonic activities. Why not join us on Facebook to receive regular information direct to your tablet or phone? We can be found at “Red Cross of Constantine NEY”.
This website is also an administrative base for the workings of the Division where you will find details of our Conclaves, meetings, summonses, documents and details of social events. The Red Cross of Constantine degree is a jewel in the orders of Freemasonry, quietly developing as a well-kept secret, to enable its members to play an active part in the workings of their Conclaves as well as the Division.
Rulers of other Orders are proud to acknowledge their membership of the Red Cross of Constantine Degree. Maintain your contact with your Chapters and Craft Lodge and encourage suitable Christian masons to further their masonic education by joining our Order when the time is right. These new members are the future of the Order and it is all our responsibility to ensure we attract them. I look forward to meeting our members over the next few years during my visits to you Conclaves and I wish you all well and every success for the future.
