The Holy Royal Arch Knight Templar Priests or Order of Holy Wisdom is governed by the Grand College of England and is a Christian Masonic Order. The headquarters of the Order are in the historic City of York, England.
To be considered for membership of this deeply significant Order, you MUST be a subscribing member of the following Masonic bodies:
- a Craft Lodge
- a Royal Arch Chapter
- a Knights Templar Preceptory
You MUST also be a Past Master of a Craft Lodge AND profess the Trinitarian Christian Faith.
The Order, in its modern form, did not set out to be deliberately exclusive, but the 31 Appendant Degrees each have their own ceremonial working and it was determined, by our Founders, that a Mason needed to be of a certain standing and qualification within Freemasonry to comprehend and appreciate these especial degrees.
The District of Northumberland and Durham (No. 23) comprises 10 Tabernacles located within the Craft Provincial boundaries of Northumberland and Durham. Tabernacles generally meet two or three times a year. Royal Kent Time Immemorial (TI) Tabernacle because of its historical status within the Order – its existence precedes the formation of Grand College – belongs directly to Grand College.
