The Consistory

A Consistory is formed from members of the 32nd and 33rd Degrees and its role is to work the 31° Grand Inspector Commander, and the 32° Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret, for the Region. Members of the 31st Degree take part in the 31° ceremony.

On 26th November 2016 the Supreme Council consecrated a Consistory in Region 1 named Waratah Consistory No 4. This was done at the Orchard Hills Masonic Centre in western Sydney. The Consistory has a Charter which allows it to meet at any approved Masonic location in Region 1.

There are now Consistories in Queensland Region 2, Victoria Region 3, and Tasmania Region 8. We are the last to be consecrated thus the number 4.

Members of the Rite who are 32° or 33° do not have to be members of the Consistory but they are welcome to attend whenever a meeting is held. All members of the 31° are also entitled to attend the 31° ceremony.

Below are three images from the Consecration meeting of Waratah Consistory No 4 on 26 November 2016.
