Rosicrucians Moving From Masonic Week to Next November in Louisville

An announcement from the SRICF, the Rosicrucian Society:

The High Council of Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis has been considering the idea of meeting independently and expanding Rosicrucian programs for several years.  During the past several years High Council meetings have doubled in size, with members enjoying the grades portrayed and asking for more.  Some suggested adding, workshops, seminars and additional degrees, with the continuation of notable Rosicrucian speakers.

For years the Society has met as a part of Masonic Week in the Washington D.C. area.  While that venue has been successful, the number of other Masonic groups meeting during the week has doubled.  The ability to have more time for additional degrees or workshops would have been difficult, if not impossible to accomplish given the time constraints.  Snowy inclement weather has added a new dimension to meeting in Washington D.C. during the winter months. 

The steady growth of our Colleges, particularly in the western states, has created a desire to relocate to a more central location.  After the last several years of snowy weather encumbering travel, a change in either location or time was necessary.  This matter has been discussed among the Chief Adepts and High Council members through a plethora of e-mails and phone calls.

The agreed upon date is November 6-8, 2015, the first weekend in November, and Louisville is the agreed location. We will have the RSKO on Friday Evening, and then we plan on starting the High Council at 8 AM Saturday, with seminars, degree conferrals, etc., all day ending with the Banquet on Saturday evening. 

On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, an agreement, was finalized with the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY.  The Brown is owned by Galtex Corporation, former owners of the Hotel Washington, where Masonic Week met for years.  The Hotel is steeped in history, is elegant, and the place to build a tradition.  Further, it is affordable with a rate of $129, $30 less than 2014 prices!  Check out their website: www.brownhotel.com.  Those who miss the elegance of the Hotel Washington are going to love this Hotel.

Reservations may be made on line by going to:

or call 888-888-5252 and tell them you are with SRICF to receive our rate.
