Soror Julie Scott, Grand Master of the English Grand Lodge for the Americas and Supreme Secretary of AMORC, reflects on the extraordinary projects that have been accomplished at Rosicrucian Park since the 75th Anniversary of the Park in 2002.
In 2002, on the occasion of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of Rosicrucian Park, the Board of Directors of the English Grand Lodge announced the plans for the Future of Rosicrucian Park in a special issue of the Rosicrucian Digest. Some of the goals seemed formidable, however they were so important that we decided to include them all.
Today, most of these goals, plus many more, have been achieved, thanks to the exceptional vision and commitment of our Board and the generosity of thousands of Rosicrucian members around North America and the Caribbean.
This podcast describes some of the extraordinary projects that we have all accomplished together.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the preservation and perpetuation of Rosicrucian Park. Your support has made all of this possible!
I hope that each of you will visit or re-visit Rosicrucian Park soon, to experience its beauty and tranquility. We look forward to welcoming you! With sincere appreciation for your support and my warmest wishes for Peace Profound,
This year marks the ninetieth year of Rosicrucian Park as the focus of Rosicrucian activity in North America and around the world. The word, focus, is a most apt description since, in the households of ancient Rome, the hearth (focus in Latin) was the center of the home. Sacred to the goddess Vesta, whose virtues had defined the sanctity, purity, and harmony of the ideal Roman family, the hearth provided warmth and light, and it was the place where nourishment was prepared. In so many ways, Rosicrucian Park has served the Rosicrucian Order and the San Jose community in these very capacities.
