The mission of Boumi Temple when it was founded was to have a place in Baltimore where Masons could go to play. The idea for Shriners Hospital for Children was conceived in 1921. Since that time, the Shriners Hospitals for Children has grown into a system of 22 hospitals.

YORK RITE

BODIES OF MARYLAND

The York Rite is one of the appendant bodies of Freemasonry. York Rite Masonry takes its name from the old English city of York and dates back 1744 in the U.K.

Like other forms of Masonry, the York Rite is not a religion. Nevertheless, it does develop Biblical themes in addition to themes based on the Medieval Crusades.

 

In the York Rite, A Master Mason may become a member of three bodies  — actually, a group of separate Rites joined in order. These include a Chapter of Royal Arch Masons; a Council of Royal and Select Masters; a Commandery of Knights Templar.
