However, my question for the York rite is as follows:
Lets say you are a high ranking York Freemason belonging to the Order of the Red Cross, and you proceed to the next stage, the order of the knights Malta.
Do you retain affiliation with the Order of the Red Cross and progress, or are you "graduated" into the next order in succession?
Question for Scottish Rite
Also am I correct in assuming that as far as the Scottish rite is concerned, it is all inclusive(except from the blue lodge Master Masons) unlike the York rite which is formulated of a few seperate, but interconnected, bodies?
Are officer postition like Chaplin, WGM, etc reserved only for Master Masons?
As far as scottish Degrees 4-33 are concerned where do the rituals take place- scottish rite lodges?
Do other York rite elevations, like royal arch, take place in York rite lodges?
