Welcome To The General Grand Council of Cryptic Masons International

Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest fraternal organization. Cryptic Masonry is a system of degrees for Master Masons who desire further knowledge and experience in the craft of Freemasonry. The Council creates deeper meanings and relationships while examining the fundamental lessons taught in Freemasonry. It provides additional tools to help answer the questions: What is my relationship with God? What is my relationship with other people? What is my purpose? We discover, preserve, and defend the truest principles of time.

Achievements of Cryptic Masonry

Complete The Story of Ancient Craft Masonry

Cryptic Masonry, consisting of Royal Master, Select Master and Super Excellent Master Degrees, is the Masonry of preservation. It teaches that the immortal truths of life will never be destroyed; that the approach of disorder and destruction will cause the Craft to deposit these great truths in a safe and secure place where they will be preserved; and, although forgotten and lost for a time, they are kept for future discovery and use of the Craft. Cryptic Masonry is the Alpha and Omega of Ancient Craft Masonry.
