We bring you greetings from Most Excellent Companion Paraag Suchak, Grand First Principal of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario.  The Grand First Principal has issued the following direction, as of this date masks are no longer required.

It is important to remember that individuals may wish to continue to wear a mask and it should be remembered that this is a personal choice and nobody should feel uncomfortable if they wish to continue to follow this practice.

The temporary procedures for opening and closing Chapter are no longer in effect and all Chapters must return to the proper ritual as outlined in the Book of the Work.
We encourage all Chapters to hold either an instruction evening prior to holding a meeting or make the first meeting an informal event so members can review the opening and closing without any undue pressure.

Dear Companions,
We bring you greetings from Most Excellent Companion Alan Donovan Grand First Principal of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons ofCanada in the Province of Ontario.

The Grand Council, at its recent meeting, has decided that the Emergent Grand Chapter Meeting scheduled for October 16, 2021 in St Catharines will now be a virtual meeting and not in person. It was decided for several reasons that it is not the appropriate time to meet in person. It is realized that our members are anxious to meet in person again but now is not the proper time.

The Grand Executive Meeting scheduled for that day will also be held virtually and the Grand Second Principal, Right Excellent Companion Paraag Suchak has sent a letter to the members of the
Grand Executive for the meeting.

Yours fraternally,

M. Ex. Comp. Richard Jackson

Public Relations for The Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario


The devastating pandemic has been with us for more than a year now. We are pleased to report that your Public Relations Committee addressing the need for more education in Masonry highlighted in the recent survey results, a small group of dedicated Royals Arch Masons have been quite busy behind the scenes.

There are currently 149 articles on various topics regarding Royal Arch Masonry. Fifteen of these articles are available to the public on the Chapter of Instruction page under the Resources tab to encourage Master Masons to look beyond the Craft Lodge.

For our members once they log in, they will also have access to many more items of education. These articles are an excellent source of history, philosophy, and the symbolism of the Holy Royal Arch. They can be used, with the appropriate acknowledgements, as educational talks at Official Visits or any regular chapter convocation.
