Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
The Order achieves its purposes by the preparation, printing and dissemination of its teachings through a correspondence system. All members of the Rosicrucian Order receive their teachings each month by mail from the headquarters based in Leichhardt NSW.The Order also publishes two quarterly magazines, one of which is freely made available to libraries and alternate healing centres.The Order also organises Rosicrucian groups where there is sufficient density of members. When possible, the local members meet in a building owned by the Order and currently there are Rosicrucian Lodges in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Auckland. There are also many small groups who meet in rented premises. These groups become a place to hold ceremonies of a religious nature, fraternal meetings, educational and cultural classes, lectures and workshops. The Rosicrucian Order does not have a "ministry", rather, its members volunteer to serve in religious and ritualistic capacities as and when required. Members meet at a place of worship which is identified as either a lodge or temple.
