Freemasonry in it’s basic form consists of three Degrees and in addition to those three degrees, the degree of the Royal Arch Chapter. The first three degrees are done within a Craft lodge whilst the Royal Arch Degree is done in a Royal Arch Chapter.
The Degree of Royal Arch Chapter is considered the completion of Ancient Freemasonry and all Craft members are encouraged to join “The Chapter” After completing the Chapter Exhaltation, the successful candidate now becomes a Companion of the Craft.
