The Right Royal Noble Valiant Christian Chivalrous and Masonic Order Of Zorro (ROZ)
PROVINCE OF EASTERN AUSTRALIA
This historical Order enacts the trials, development, achievements, and rewards undertaken and received by the great historical figure and childhood hero, Imperial Knight Count Don Zorro. It is based on the philosophical philosophies of Zoroaster, the Patron Saint of the Order. The ultimate secrets of a Christian knight mason are revealed.
Membership of the Order is by invitation only. In line with usual practice for similar and (much) lower Orders, foundation members should not be out of pocket and their development and traveling expenses which will be amortized over the fees paid by new members.
Freemasons eligible to be invited to be Candidates will be young (under 80 years of age) and in good standing in the Craft with not less than 5 years membership, and active membership of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite having attained at least the rank of 31st Degree in that Rite. However for a consideration, which will be advised, lesser qualifications may be accepted upon payment of a waiver fee.
A re-affirmation of the Christian Faith will be required of Candidates. However, a dispensation fee may be paid in lieu of faith.
It is proposed that the Council of the Order will meet only twice annually and the Imperial Council annually as convened by the Imperial Secretary.
The Order has only one Dependent Order, “The Order of the Faithful Servant of Zorro”.
