Well, I am honored to say that tonight I was invited to join the Red Cross of Constantine.

I can't wait to go through the initiatory ceremony at the end of May (a month growing more and more busy).

seems like this order is very similiar to the Knights Templar?
 
I am assuming the degrees/orders are different though

The RCC is based around the history of Constantine and is, from what I know now, different from the Templar Orders.

There is a Conclave in NYC and Binghamton.

Well, today was the day for my initiation at St. Michael Conclave of the Red Cross of Constantine here in Boise.  It was a fascinating degree and I can't wait for the NW Regional Assembly next Spring.

I am assuming that this is the same all over, but at least In my area, the Red Cross of Constantine is an honorary body and degree. Only a set amount are allowed in to each conclave, in my area this number is 33. After that, you have to wait for someone to demit of pass away to get in so it is very exclusive in the men that it asks to join.
Also in our area, if you are asked and turn them down, you will never be asked to join again, you have one chance to get in only. HRAKTP is similar also as it is a more highly exclusive group and I believe that there can only be one body per state with only 33 members.
It's a big honor to be asked to be in either one and signifies that you have done a lot of work for the York Rite in your state.

Here is an introduction:

Quote The Red Cross of Constantine is officially The Masonic and Military Order of the Red Cross of Constantine and the Orders of the Holy Sepulchre and St. John the Evangelist, the latter two of which are called the Appendant Orders. There are also two chair degrees conferred on the Viceroy and Sovereign of a Conclave, and two honorary orders: Knight Commander of Constantine and Knight Grand Cross. The governing body of the Order for the United States of America, the Republic of Mexico and the Republic of the Philippines and their territories is styled The United Grand Imperial Council of Knights of the Red Cross of Constantine and Appendant Orders for the United States of America, Mexico and the Philippines.

The purpose of the Constantinian Orders are to commemorate the first elevation of Christianity from the position of a despised and proscribed heresy to that of a legally recognized and honored religion, to cultivate the social virtues, appeal to the intellectual and moral qualities, preserve as far as possible the customs of the fraternity and bring about good fellowship and understanding between all branches of Masonry.

Knights Companions of the Order meet in Conclaves of the Red Cross of Constantine and a member must be a Royal Arch Mason in good standing and subscribe to a belief in the Christian religion as revealed in the New Testament. Membership is by invitation and each Conclave has a prescribed membership limit.

It's a very different situation here in the UK, fortunately for me Smile
