Our Albert Lucking Chapter 2717 is currently governed by E Comp. Barry Nichols ably assisted by E Comp's Roy Squibb and Austin Latham; due to the current Covid-19 pandemic our principals and supporting officers will all remain in office for a further year.
The Royal Arch is the continuation of Craft Freemasonry. Members meet in a Chapter which has officers in many respects similar to craft lodges although Chapters are ruled over by three principles.
Other than the installation meeting there is only one other ceremony that is performed which is when a new member is admitted.
The Royal Arch is governed by the Supreme Grand Chapter of England and should you wish to further extend your interest we strongly advise that you read the more in depth explanations on it’s website www.supremegrandchapter.org.uk
Essex also now has its own Provincial Grand Chapter website.
The Chapter meets at Saxon Hall during the 1st Saturday in February and 4th Saturday's in May & October.
To join a Chapter you must be a Master Mason, of at least four weeks standing. As with Craft Masonry you will need a proposer and seconder.
Considering joining a Chapter or already a Companion and would like to visit our Chapter then why not contact our Scribe Paul Thurgood
- you would be more than welcome…
In similar to many Chapters, we are currently enduring severe difficulties with our meetings during this Covid-19 pandemic.
Our meeting scheduled for Saturday, 24th October as all are aware was suspended. Our next meet is Saturday, 6th February next year! - lets hope for better times...
