Traditional History and Introduction:
The Red Cross of Constantine is a Christian body blending history, legend and tradition. Members are created Knights in rituals based on the events recorded about Emperor Constantine the Great and the recovery of the Word in the Holy Land. The organization was introduced into the United States in about 1869. The emblem displayed above has a real significance relating to the ritual. Members are decorated with this emblem and a purple sash.
Membership is by invitation only and cannot be requested. Conclaves are limited in number by our By-Laws and members must be Royal Arch Masons of the Christian faith who have made real contributions to the York Rite and their communities. Candidates are selected without their knowledge by proposal and unanimous vote of the members.
