Knight Commander of the Court of Honor


The Rank and Decoration of Knight Commander of the Court of Honour (KCCH) is not a degree, but an Investiture, bestowed upon members deserving recognition for faithful services to the Rite or to mankind. At the biennial session of the Supreme Council, certain 32° Masons are chosen to be invested with the Rank and Decoration of Knight Commander of the Court of Honour. The respective Sovereign Grand Inspectors General or Deputies of each Orient nominate members for this honour, and they must also be unanimously approved by the Supreme Council. This Investiture is a prerequisite to receiving the 33˚ but does not guarantee he will receive the 33˚. The Rank and Decoration of KCCH may not be requested, and if requested must be refused. The cap of the Knight Commander Court of Honour is red with a darker red band trimmed in gold. In the center front is a representation of the Knight Commander Jewel, a Passion Cross with fancy arms, featuring in the center a trefoil embroidered in green encircled by “Kt.·. Comm.·. Court of Honor” embroidered in gold.
