York Rite College

On behalf of the Preeminent Governor, officers, and members of North Texas York Rite College No. 118, welcome!

The York Rite Sovereign College of North America exists primarily to be of service to the York Rite of Freemasonry:

  • To foster a spirit of cooperation and coordination among each of the Bodies of York Rite Masonry.
  • To assist in worthy efforts to improve the ritualistic and dramatic presentation of York Rite work.
  • To conduct an educational program in order to inculcate a greater appreciation of the principles, ideals, and programs of York Rite Masonry.
  • To strengthen York Rite Masonry in every proper manner.
  • To build a love of country and to aid and support genuine Patriotism.
  • To reward outstanding service to York Rite Masonry by awards, honors, and other methods of proper recognition.
  • To support charitable and benevolent endeavors of Freemasonry.

The prerequisite for membership, which is by invitation only, is good-standing in all four York Rite bodies: Lodge, Chapter, Council, and Commandery.

Our meetings are held at Travis Masonic Lodge No. 117, 2817 N. Travis St., Sherman, TX 75090.
