Dramatic Order Knights of Khorassan
NEW ASPECT OF OUR FRATERNAL ORDER
Pythians are eligible for membership in the Dramatic Order Knights of Khorassan (DOKK). And membership in the DOKK is your opportunity to enjoy an exciting new aspect of our fraternal Order. As well, you’ll enjoy the realm of fun and frolic. You’ll find that DOKK meetings, ceremonial, customs and plans are refreshingly different from your usual Lodge patterns.
As an initiate you’ll certainly enjoy receiving, witnessing and possibly even becoming an active participant in the renowned DOKK “Eighth Order”. The DOKK ritual teaches valuable lessons of life and includes a scene which exemplifies our motto “Lift Up The Fallen”. It is rated as one of the finest ritualistic parts ever written.
Local organizations are known as Temples and have been established in communities throughout the United States and Canada. The DOKK is governed by a national organization known as the Imperial Palace, similar to the Supreme Lodge, except that it deals directly with the Temples and has no state body such as a Grand Lodge. The Imperial Palace is comprised of representatives from Temples across the United States and Canada who meet in convention every two years.
If there is no DOKK Temple in your community and you wish to organize one, a minimum of twenty-five Pythians may make application to the Imperial Palace to establish a Temple. There are, from time to time various incentives available from the Imperial Palace to groups establishing a new Temple.
