District 5 York Rite Festival

This fall’s York Rite Festival was a great success!  We had 14 new members receiving the various degrees and orders of the rites.  We had a good turnout with many dignitaries from the various bodies present.

The degrees and orders were performed well even with a few last minute replacements who had a very short time to learn their parts.

The meals provided during the festival were delicious and plentiful, we want to thank Comp. Edgar’s wife, Natasha,  for keeping all of us fed and happy.

We would also like to thank Sanford Lodge / York Rite Bodies for allowing the use of their lodge to host the festival due to scheduling conflicts at or home lodge.

Year after year we can see the fellowship of Freemasonry as many Brothers, Companions and Sir Knights from different Lodges, Chapters, Councils and Commanderies come together for these festivals.  It’s a lot of hard work and we appreciate the time and effort that our brothers have dedicated in order to make a good impression on the new members.

If you want to join the Orlando York Rite Bodies, it’s not too late! We will be having another festival in the Spring. Contact us to begin the process.

Sandra Moffses Memorial Service

Per Big Rick Overbee – “Our Brother Phillip Moffses has informed us that Sandra’s Honorarium Memorial is scheduled for October 24th at the First Presbyterian Church, downtown Orlando at 10:00AM in the Chapel. This date is their anniversary and the place where they got married. If you can be there, the many appendant bodies, including Eastern Star, Amaranth, and Daughters of White Shrine have been asked to participate. Please mark your calendars accordingly.”

Sandra Moffses Passing

To All the Members of The Orlando York Rite Bodies:
I was just informed by Ted Hammond That Phil Moffses wife Sandra has passed.  Let’s all keep Phil in your prayers.  When we get any further information we will pass it on. 
Fraternally Yours,
