On behalf of all the members of the Grand Council of Cryptic Masons of Kansas, I wish to welcome you to our web page.

It is a great honor to be elected as the Most Illustrious Grand Master of the Grand Council of Cryptic Masons of Kansas for 2017 to 2018.

One of my goals for this year is to work closely with the Grand Chapter and Grand Commandery to bring united leadership to the York Rite. We hope to combine our efforts to streamline our events, maximize our strengths, and work together for the common goal of improving York Rite Masonry in Kansas.

Another goal is to work with the Councils in our neighboring states including Colorado, Wyoming, and Oklahoma to build stronger relationships that may help us learn how to better increase membership, retain current members, and bring enthusiasm back to York Rite Masonry.

The Council has many events throughout the year including:

June 3, 2017 – Grand Officers’ Joint Reception, Iola, KS                     June 17, 2017 – Council & Chapter Joint School of Instruction, Iola, KS

                    June 24, 2017 – Great Plains Rendezvous in conjunction with Colorado & Wyoming, Hay, KS

                   September 8 – 10, 2017 – Pike’s Peak Pilgrimage & Time Capsule Inspection,  Manitou Springs, CO

                   October 14, 2017 – Fall Festival, Newton, KS

Some of these events may have already passed, so check the calendar of events for details.

Again, it is an honor to be elected as the Most Illustrious Grand Master of Cryptic Masons of Kansas and I look forward to serving you throughout the coming year.

Rodney Middleton
