The Helotes York Rite is comprised of the Chapter and Council bodies. Helotes York Rite Chapter #444 is subordinate to The Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Texas and Council #362 is subordinate to The Grand Council of Royal and Select Masters of Texas. Both Chapter and Council meetings are held at the Helotes Masonic Lodge #1429 in Helotes, Texas.
Chapter #444 meets for the monthly Stated Convocation on the 2nd Wednesday of every month and Council #362 meets for the monthly Stated Assembly on the 4th Wednesday of every month.
Chapter #444 confers all four Chapter degrees and Council #362 confers two of the Council degrees. We typically hold anywhere from 2 - 4 "classes" of candidates per year where we confer the six required* Capitular & Cryptic degrees and we also participate in at least one York Rite Festival.
*We confer the six degrees required to qualify for the Commandery Orders
York Rite Companion visitors are welcome according to their status as reflected on their current dues card.
