The Ceremony of Lights for the Cumberland Scottish Rite will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 2:00 pm at the Masonic Temple, Greene Street, Cumberland.
Chapters of Rose Croix traditionally observe this Ceremony of Remembrance and Renewal, including the Mystic Banquet, as a memorial service honoring the Knights of their Chapter who have passed on during the preceding year.
This observance strengthens the ties of brotherly love, past and present. We meet together to break the bread of fraternity, to reconcile ourselves with those we may have offended, and to drink the wine of refreshment and renewal. Thus, we celebrate the lives of our departed Brethren and promise to abide by the New Law, the Law of Love, with our present Brethren and all mankind.
2:00 pm – Ceremony of Remembrance and Renewal
3:00 pm – Dinner
