Summary of Body

Knights of St Andrew“The degree of Knight of St. Andrew (29°) is intended to inculcate equality—representing the poor knight equal to the monarch; and exhibits the requisites of knighthood—protection to the defenseless and innocent, the possession of virtue, patience, and firmness and represents the Knight as the exponent of truth, and one alike without fear and without reproach.” –Charles T. McClenachan, The Book of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

The Knights of St. Andrew exist as a service organization on behalf of all members of their Consistory. They are under the immediate supervision of the Secretary of their Scottish Rite Consistory and provide services where they are needed. This includes, but not limited to, aiding the Tylers, acting as greeters, providing escort services for dignitaries or for special events created for the ladies during reunions or other functions, serving as guides, assisting the Scottish degree work, helping present the Colors. Knights of St. Andrew also assist in the calling committees, participate in parades or civic activities, promote fund-raising events, and aid in any special event. The list can continue on as new ideas and concepts are developed to meet needs and goals.

Their flexibility and enthusiasm make the Knights of St. Andrew one of the Valley’s most active and desirable organizations. It is an excellent way to nurture and develop future leaders as they learn their organizational and leadership skills, explore the inner structures of their Scottish Rite Centers, and thus gain a deeper admiration for our Order and Brethren who work in Freemasonry as a whole.
