SRIL is a sovereign Society in the world.

SRIL currently has Colleges in two provinces: Portugal and Italy. SRIL may open Colleges in other territories, especially where close historical, cultural, and linguistic ties exist, provided that these territories are not occupied by other Rosicrucian Societies recognized by SRIL.

SRIL maintains fraternal relations with the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia, the Societas Rosicruciana in Scotia, and the Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis, with their officers meeting regularly for mutual information and consultation.

Since its inception, SRIL has also maintained fraternal relations with the Societas Rosicruciana in Canada.

The SRIs referred to here are the only sovereign Societas in the world whose members are recruited from among the Christian Master Masons. They all have Colleges in other regions of the globe.
