The 156th Convocation of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons in the Province of Ontario is rapidly approaching. It is an excellent opportunity to get involved, see your Grand Chapter at work, meet old friends and make new friends. Friendship is part of the backbone of masonry and essential if we want our organization to prosper and survive. Exchanging ideas is another. This means physical contact, sitting at home reading the summons , or on the internet is not enough, you have to get out of the house, meet fellow masons at Chapter and at your other Masonic organizations. We not only have to ensure the participation of the membership at the meetings, we have to meet the new mason. He is important for the growth of our organization and should be made aware of our organization. If he is not informed and is seeking further knowledge, he will look elsewhere. The public relations committee has the tools that you could use and assist you in your endeavors. Remember, any renovation takes a bit of effort to make it work.
See you at the Convocation

New Website Launched The new Grand Chapter website was launched just prior to the Grand Executive Fall session in Ottawa. The new website has private and public areas. To access the private areas, which feature content from districts, credentials are needed which can be obtained from your Chapter Scribe E. Since the credentials were just recently distibuted, please allow some time for the Grand Superintendent of your district to communicate these credentials to each Chapter. A process has also been put in place to allow for personal credentials. - R. Ex. Comp. Paraag Suchak, Webmaster
