Welcome to the home page of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Kansas. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We invite you to explore the world of Templary. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. The Grand Commandery is here to serve the Commanderies of Knights Templar of Kansas. The Orders of the Knights Templar tell the story of the Templar Knights who were charged with protecting pilgrims on their way to and from the Holy Land. The Knight Templars are members of the world’s oldest fraternity, the Masons. Commanderies of Knights Templar, together with Lodges of Master Masons, Chapters of Royal Arch Masons and Councils of Cryptic Masons, constitute the York Rite of Freemasonry. Knight Templar Masonry can only be joined after becoming a Master Mason in a "Blue Lodge". If you are a Master Mason, all you have to do is petition the York Rite. They will be glad to consider you for membership. The orders of the Knights Templar have but one requirement and that is that you profess a belief in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and practice Christian virtues. These orders complete and amplify the degrees of the Symbolic Blue Lodge. Ask your Lodge secretary or any member of a local Chapter, Council or Commandery for a petition. Our mission is to support the constituent Commanderies of Knight Templar in Kansas in your education of Masonry in general, and York Rite Masonry in particular.
