Greetings from the San Jose Chapter Knights of Saint Andrew.  The Knights of Saint Andrew is a 32° Mason service organization within the Valley of San Jose Scottish Rite.  The Knights have a Stated (monthly) meeting on the first Tuesday of the Month at 7:00pm.  All Scottish Rite Masons are invited to attend.  Rehearsals for the 29th Degree are currently scheduled for the 4th Tuesday at 7:00pm.
 The Knights Stated meeting is under the direction of Chief Knight, Gerald Best.  Meetings address inducting new members who want to be of service to the Scottish Rite, scheduling of activities for the Chapter and review of the 29th degree performance.    Areas of service include, but are not limited to, Cast for Degrees portrayed in Spring and Fall Reunions; support crews for all degrees; Parades like the Veteran's Day parade and Fourth of July; Greeters for the Scottish Rite Stated Meeting and other activities as requested by the various Bodies.   Roles for the 29th Degree, Scottish Knight of Saint Andrew, are primarily comprised of members of the Chapter.  The 29th Degree costuming is Scottish Kilt. Performance in the 29th Degree is not mandatory, there are many other service opportunities.
Our Knights have also participated in private settings, mainly for our brethren, such as weddings, receptions, and knightings.  The only requirement for initial membership in the Chapter is that one be a 32nd Degree Mason in Good Standing.
Knights of Saint Andrew are easily recognized by the Scottish red and white checkered Glengarry at Scottish Rite functions.
 The San Jose Knights of Saint Andrew also have a presence on "Facebook."
 If you have an interest in service to the Scottish Rite, contact any Sir Knight. 

Slainte Mhath! (Great Health)

29th Degree Director
