Royal Arch Masonry is a fraternal organization whose members are drawn from the ranks of Free & Accepted Masons, also known as Freemasons or Masons. It is one of three organizations which together form the York Rite of Freemasonry [the other two being Royal & Select Masons and Knights Templar].
Royal Arch Chapters can be found in countries throughout the world. The roots of the Royal Arch degree can be traced back to the late 17th century in Ireland and in England in 1738. By 1753 the Royal Arch degree had migrated to the United States. While the Lodge degrees deal with the material side of life, the Chapter degrees, particularly the Royal Arch degree, deal with the spiritual side of life.
Kilbourn Chapter traces its roots back to 1842. It is chartered under the authority of the Grand Chapter RAM of Wisconsin.
Kilbourn Chapter holds one stated meeting each month on the fourth Wednesday of the month, except in July, August, and December.
Any man who is a Master Mason in good standing of a Masonic Lodge may petition for membership. For information on membership, please contact the Chapter Secretary.
