Each Chapter determines its own schedule for meetings. Certain degrees must be conferred in full form, namely, the 18th (Rose Croix) degree to which a Brother is elevated at his initial meeting. The 30th, 31st, 32nd and 33rd degrees are also worked in full form.
The other intermediate degrees are conferred by name.
There are in some districts Past Sovereigns’ Chapters which are authorised to demonstrate the 4th to the 17th degrees. All members of the Order may attend such meetings and they are a fascinating insight into Masonic mythology.
The Ancient and Accepted Rite presents an opportunity, a challenge and many rewards to the Master Mason.
