THE ROSICRUCIAN FELLOWSHIP
March 20, 2004
10: AM to 6:00 PM
An event has been scheduled to take place at The Rosicrucian Fellowship which has not been authorized by either the Board of Trustees or The Ecclesiastical Council. The latter official body of the Fellowship has the authority to approve all events to take place at Mount Ecclesia. Information regarding this event was not presented to The Ecclesiastical Council. This event has been advertised in local newspapers prior to its presentation to either The Ecclesiastical Council or the Board of Trustees for approval. As this event is clearly a profit-making event, we are in violation of both our Bylaws and our Articles of Incorporation. The Rosicrucian Fellowship is registered in the State of California in the category of Non-profit Religious Corporations. As such, the Fellowship is also tax-exempt.
The enclosed article appeared in the local newspaper on Sunday, March 7, 2004.
This event has proven to be a clear interference with the spiritual program at Mount Ecclesia. For many years, we have celebrated the Equinoxes and Solstices with special programs and Services. The Ecclesiastical Council had scheduled, in accordance with our tradition, A Western Wisdom Bible Workshop to be held at Mount Ecclesia from Friday, March 19th, 5:00 PM through Saturday, March 20th 9:00 PM. The programs including the list of events at the time of the Vernal Equinox Celebration and Holy Week, which includes Easter, were printed and distributed about a month ago. There is NO mention of this “San Diego’s First Spring Equinox” in the printed program. When the leaders of our W.W. Bible Workshop learned of this bazaar, with dancing and drumming, etc., they informed the members of The Ecclesiastical Council that they would not lead out in our own Workshop. This effectively cancelled the official Fellowship event, leaving only the money-making bazaar.
