The Knighting Ceremony was written by Brother Kurt Hoffman, 32° who is the Secretary of the Group. Steve Hall, 32° is the Commander and those wishing to join and participate should contact him at Scoopcoater@yahoo.com, or you can contact the Scottish Rite Office.
The Knights of Saint Andrew was first organized in Oklahoma at the Tulsa Valley. It is an organization composed of "Black Hats" (32° Masons)
The Mission is tentatively:
To serve as a leadership development tool for our membership
To provide opportunities for 32° Members to become more involved in the Rite.
To become a visible, viable entity of the Des Moines Scottish Rite.
The Knights of St. Andrew (KSA) is an organization exclusively for 32° SR Masons with the mission of advancing the mission of the Scottish Rite. SR Valleys across the United States have formed their own KSA organizations and have had a great deal of success.
