The Knights of St. Andrew (KSA) are made of an elite unit of select Scottish Rite Masons. They exist as a service organization on behalf of all members of their Consistory. They are under the immediate supervision of the Secretary of their Scottish Rite Consistory and provide services where they are needed. This includes, but is not limited to, aiding the Tylers, acting as greeters, providing escort services for dignitaries or for special events created for the ladies during reunions or other functions, serving as guides, assisting the Scottish Rite degree work, and helping present the Colors. The KSA also assist in the calling committees, participate in parades or civic activities, promote fund-raising events, and aid in any special occasion. The list can continue as new ideas and concepts are developed to meet needs and goals.
The Valley of New Bern, KSA, was first chartered in November 2009. Their flexibility and enthusiasm make the Knights of St. Andrew one of the Valley's most active and desirable organizations. It is an excellent way to nurture and develop future leaders as they learn their organizational and leadership skills, explore the inner structures of their Scottish Rite Centers, and thus gain a more profound admiration for our Order and Brethren who work in Freemasonry as a whole.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the KSA, please contact the Secretary.
