Kansas Council No. 53, KM
The Knight Masons control the "Green Degrees" of Ireland which for many years had been conferred by their Knight Templar Priories. Councils had existed in the United States under Irish charter until a Grand Council was established here in 1967. This, too, is an invitational organization and all candidates must be Royal Arch Masons, be sponsored by a member Knight, and pass a unanimous ballot.

Kansas Council of Knight Masons was chartered on February 24, 1995 and meets three times each year. Officers dress is a dark suit, white shirt, tie and jewels.

We confer three degrees in full form. They are the Council of Knight of the Sword (formerly Red Cross of Daniel or Babylonian Pass), Council of Knight of the East (or Jordan Pass) and Council of Knight of the East and West (or Royal Order).

Our 2007 meeting dates are March 3rd, June 16th, and November 10th.
