GRAND YORK RITE OF MISSOURI
The operational aspects of what is collectively referred to as the Grand York Rite of Missouri consists of three separate sovereign Masonic organizations:
- Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of the State of Missouri
- Grand Council of Cryptic Masons of the State of Missouri
- Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of the State of Missouri.
All three are established on democratic principles where the senior officers are elected by and from the membership of that particular organization.
