The Knights of Saint Andrew is made up of selected 32° Scottish Rite Masons.
This is a “black cap” organization only.
The Knights of Saint Andrew exist as a service organization on behalf of all members of the Lubbock Consistory. They provide services where they are needed and 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 degree work and helping present the Colors. Knights of Saint Andrew also assist in the calling committees, participate in parades or civic activities, promote fund-raising events, and aid in any special event. The list can continue on as new ideas and concepts are developed to meet our needs and goals. Membership in the Knights of Saint Andrew helps 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 deeper admiration for our Order and Brethren who work in Freemasonry as a whole. The membership is limited to members of the Lubbock Valley and membership is “by invitation” only.
