General Information:

Rosicrucian Convocations (Members Only)

Convocation is held the first and third Sundays of every month at 2:00 PM unless otherwise noted on our calendar. The Pronaos opens its doors at 1:00 PM; please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to Convocation to properly prepare.

This event is open to members only and current membership credentials (AMORC membership card and dues payment receipt) must be presented for admittance.

After attending Pronaos Convocation up to three times, AMORC members are required to be officially initiated into the Pronaos if they wish to continue participating in Convocation rituals.

Please refer to the calendar below for the most recent schedule of events.

Council of Solace (Public Event)

The Council of Solace is held on the first Sunday of every month at 1:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted on our calendar.

The purpose of this ritual is to send positive thoughts (such as love, peace, healing) towards all of humanity, and in particular to any persons whom we know are in need of help.

Lastly, it allows us to relax and become receptive to the very same positive forces that we set into motion so that we too may benefit from them.

This event is open publicly to individuals who are at least 18 years of age.
