                                 Another NEW KSA Chapter

Where is Taytay, Rizal?? …about 21 hours west of the U.S. in the Republic of the Philippines. On November 30th, 2019 the first Philippine Chapter of the Knights of St. Andrew held an investiture with the induction of several Knights.


The organizers decided to name their KSA group the Andres Bonifacio Chapter after a hero of Philippine independence from Spain and an outstanding Mason. The investiture was held on the anniversary of the hero’s birth.


Taytay, in the “state” of Rizal is only a few kilometers from Manila – if that helps you become oriented. Rizal is a separate Masonic Jurisdiction.


There are more photos on the Photo Gallery Page on this site.


We are proud to welcome the Knights of the Andrew Bonifacio Chapter to the brotherhood of the KSA.

Guthrie Chapter Celebrates 25 Years of Service

October, 2018 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Chartering of the Guthrie (OK) Chapter of the Knights of St. Andrew. At a celebration dinner, the members presented Brother, Sir Knight, Ralph Fullenwider with the first ever Lifetime Service Award.


A Charter Member, Brother Ralph was instrumental in writing the scripts for the Processional and Knighting Ceremony. He also designed and created the KSA logo which became the badge utilized by most of the 169 Chapters of the KSA today. And, there's more! Ralph and his wife Charlotte sewed the first 14 kilt uniforms (including sporrans) owned by the Chapter. They also created the original banner now on display in the museum outside the Egyptian Room in the Guthrie Scottish Rite Center.


All current Chapters of the Knights of St. Andrew owe Brother Ralph Fullenwider a huge “Thanks” for giving the organization a wonderful start.

Kansas City Scottish Rite Opens 1903 Time Capsule

Fire nearly destroyed an historic church in Kansas City, MO last November. From the ashes came a Masonic laid corner stone. The time capsule was placed in 1903. The Scottish Rite of Missouri held a delightful and revealing "grand opening" on January 25th. Many Masonic related items were revealed and their historic value discussed. Check the videos at this site: KC Corner Stone



College Fraternities Founded by Masons

The September/October issue of the Scottish Rite Journal contains an article about College Fraternities that have been founded by Masons. Most of us are familiar with ACACIA (crest at left) but aren't aware of the many others. Perhaps your fraternity is on this list. Check page 8 of your hardcopy for the beginning of the list, or go to the following website to read the article on-line.

                  College Fraternity List

You may be surprised to find that one College Sorority was founded by a group of Eastern Star Ladies. Masons and masonic ideals are the basis of many organizations.



Interesting Statistics-

In a recent survey of members, the New England Historical Genealogical Society asked about Masonic membership. The responses from 4,190 members may show us a trend we already suspect.

  3% I am a Mason

23% My father is/was a Mason

34% One or both of my grandfathers were Masons

26% At least one of my great-grandfathers was a Mason

29% At least one of my more distant ancestors was a Mason

23% I don't know if any of my ancestors were Masons

12% No, none of my ancestors were Masons


These survey results are, at first, distressing... but, also challenging.
