Gnostic Mass

Our monthly celebrations of the Gnostic Mass are generally held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, at 4pm. Please check our Event Calendar for Gnostic Mass dates & times.

Masses take place at the Swirling Star Temple, 3833 North Andrews Avenue, Oakland Park, FL 33309, located on the 2nd floor of the building. There is plenty of free parking in our lot.

Aleister Crowley described the Gnostic Mass as “the central ritual, both public and private, of the O.T.O.” Masses are a great introduction to the Order, and a perfect place for newcomers to meet our membership and learn about Swirling Star Lodge & O.T.O.

Our Masses are open to the public, so please feel free to bring interested persons. There is a suggested donation of $10-20 per person to help cover the cost of performing the ritual and maintaining our Temple space. Please e-mail us at swirlingstaroto@gmail.com prior to the Mass you plan to attend.

tptf-third-editionIf you would like to familiarize yourself with the ritual, please have a look at the video above of the Gnostic Mass, performed at Swirling Star Lodge in 2013 by James & Nancy Wasserman. Together, these two Bishops of Ecclesiastica Gnostica Catholica (E.G.C.), have nearly 60 years of of combined experience performing the Gnostic Mass. Their book, To Perfect This Feast, is a wonderful companion guide to the Mass! Copies are available for purchase at our Lodge and online.
