The Ocala York Rite Bodies consists of three independent Masonic Bodies: a Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, a Council of Royal & Select Masters, and a Commandery of Knights Templar. We strive and look for quality Master Masons to further their Masonic education and knowledge. We also strive to make good Master Masons better Masons and leaders.
In Florida, a Master Mason began their journey in their Blue Lodge under the York Rite ritual. It is natural for a Florida Master Mason to continue his journey in the York Rite. The various degrees will fill the events between the first and third degree. This will give you a better understanding of three degrees in your Lodge. In addition, you were promised that one day to receive the True Master Mason word. It is in the Royal Arch degree where you as that future generation finds it.
The Commandery of Knights Templar is the Christian arm of Freemasonry. The Master Mason must be a firm believer in the Christian religion. In order to become a Knight Templar, a Master Mason must first be a Royal Arch Mason and a Royal and Select Master.
The Ocala York Rite Bodies strongly believes and follows their Mission Statement:
"Ocala York Rite Masons will be recognized as active, relevant and respected Fraters attracting and retaining other Fraters of high quality, who are committed to self-improvement, leadership, and to making a difference within our fraternity and community."
