The Provincial Grand Conclave 2013

The annual Provincial Meeting was held at Mark Masons’ Hall, London on Tuesday 29th October, which was attended by not only two past Provincial Grand Supreme Rulers of the Province, a large number of other Provincial Grand Supreme Rulers, Deputy Provincial Grand Supreme rulers of and members of the eleven conclaves forming the Province of London.

In his address to the Brethren the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler R.Wy.Bro. Peter Ribi highlighted two major points relating to our order. The first was the duties of the conclave visiting deacon and here he stated that he would contact every conclave Supreme Ruler Elect and give him a copy of a Guide for Visiting Deacons. The object of this guide is to make every candidate for this office aware of the duties and responsibilities expected of him before he is offered the job. This Brother then has the opportunity to study his responsibilities and if he accepts the office, he will then give an assurance to the conclave Supreme Ruler Elect that he will undertake to discharge his duties to the best of his ability.

The second point the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler mentioned was the question of improving the standard of ritual in the conclaves. He urged Brethren not only of the Province of London but also any other Brother to attend the Premier Conclave of Improvement held at Mark Masons’ Hall every second Wednesday of the month and he hoped that the Brethren would take advantage of this facility.

The Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler on the behalf of the Province was very pleased to be able to support the appeal launched by the Mark Province of London to supply new min-buses to the RMBI homes and he was able to present a cheque for £500.00 to the Mark Provincial Grand Secretary Bro. Harvey Roland who was present at the meeting.

After the meeting the Brethren of the Province and their guests dine together and the atmosphere both at the meeting and the festive board was within the spirit of friendship which is the essence of our order.
