Mount Ecclesia is the location of the international headquarters of the fraternal and service organization The Rosicrucian Fellowship (TRF), located on grounds in Oceanside, California. It is also the location of its spiritual temple, called "The Ecclesia", situated upon the promontory of a high mesa overlooking the San Luis Rey River Valley and the Franciscan Mission San Luis Rey de Francia founded in 1798.
On April 7, 1995, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Rosicrucian Fellowship Temple.
The Rosicrucian Fellowship observes the basic condition, set by its founder Max Heindel, that no price, membership dues or fees, should be put on its teachings. The Fellowship's funding and maintenance is achieved through the voluntary giving of members and friends and with the assistance of volunteer workers. Mount Ecclesia seeks to become a Spiritual Center in the world, as an effort:
|“||to unite and harmonize each with the others by teaching a religion that is both scientific and artistic, and to gather all churches into one great Christian Brotherhood.||”|

Famous quotes containing the word mount:
“A land of meanness, sophistry and mist.
Each breeze from foggy mount and marshy plain
Dilutes with drivel every drizzly brain.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
