Remembrance and Renewal Ceremony, 2019


This March, 2019, the Salina Scottish Rite Masons held their Remembrance and Renewal at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Salina, Kansas. The public was invited. A reception followed. Please enjoy a video (above) of the ceremony in its entirety.

The ceremony is a time honored tradition dating back to 1856. It is a ritual observed annually by the Scottish Rite Masons around the world. The first section is a gathering to remember friends who died over the past year and to honor the Knights of Rose Croix by extinguishing the lights.

The second section is relighting the lights, recognition of the resurrection of Christ and the acceptance of life hereafter. A celebration of what is yet to come.

Knights of St. Andrew brothers acted as ushers.
