50th Anniversary Jubilee Celebration in New Zealand

2013 marked the 50th anniversary (Jubilee year) of the work of B.O.T.A. in New Zealand. Rev. Ann Davies, the successor to Paul Foster Case, traveled to New Zealand in 1963 to lay the foundation for the work of Builders of the Adytum to be undertaken there.

In October, B.O.T.A. members from New Zealand, Australia, and the United States, including the Prolocutor General, Rev. Diane Rhodes, gathered for a Jubilee celebration at the Naenae Temple in Wellington, where Rev. Will Chesterman lived and worked. During the celebration, two New Zealand members were ordained as ministers to represent the B.O.T.A. to the public: Frater Adrian and Soror Caroline.
