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.

  OCEANSIDE  -- “Up the Vibe!” is the theme for San Diego’s first Spring Equinox Festival from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 20 at The Rosicrucian Fellowship, 2222 Mission Ave. Blending mainstream with new age, the festival will celebrate life and spirit with uplifting mini-workshops covering a broad range of topics from the area’s top metaphysical specialists throughout the day, a body-mind-spirit craft fair and bazaar, strolling musicians and random jazz sessions, dancing and drumming, vegetarian cafeteria, tours and discussions of the Rosicrucian Temple and grounds, and an outdoor concert at sunset featuring renowned guitarist Scott Huckabay. Other musicians and  dancers will highlight the day’s festivities and the event is appropriate for the entire family. Ticket prices are $10 in advance or $15 the day of the event,  and include entry into all workshops, craft bazaar and concerts. Workshop leaders, venders and crafters are welcome to apply. Volunteers are needed. Call Destiny International for more information (760)

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.
