Current Organisation of the LRC
Currently, the Lectorium Rosicrucianum has pupils and members in 70 countries, including many countries in Europe, South America, North America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The head office of the international organization is located in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
After the death of the spiritual leaders Jan van Rijckenborgh (1968) and Catharose de Petri (1990), the LRC is now guided by the International Spiritual Directorate, supported by seven Presidia. The Presidia are in turn supported by national boards and advisory councils as well as many working groups.
The Lectorium Rosicrucianum is a self-supporting and non-profit organization without any economic interest, funded entirely by contributions, donations and legacies from its pupils and members and without any assistance or subsidies from the state. The monthly fees are kept at a minimum level. Entrance into the organization as member is possible after an orientation phase in which the completion of a free orientation course is requested. Membership can be applied for in person or by written request and at a minimum age of 18 years.
Pupils and members receive the bi-monthly magazine “Pentagram”.
