A very warm welcome to the web site of the Ancient and Accepted Rite for New Zealand, well known to many New Zealand Masons as the Rose Croix.
The first three degrees of free masonry are but the wonderful entrance to the great Temple of Freemasonry. Those who would seek more light, more knowledge of the mission and symbolism of Freemasonry, a more complete interpretation of the teachings of the Craft degrees, as well as acceptance into a very special fellowship and Brotherhood, can obtain these within the Ancient and Accepted Rite.
Known in some parts of the world as the Scottish Rite, the Ancient and Accepted Rite follows the Christian teachings. It builds a superstructure on the firm base of the three craft degrees, and so provides a means whereby the earnest seeker after truth may receive further and deeper knowledge and understanding of the same great truths.
I hope the information in the "Introduction Section" will be useful and interesting to you.
