Welcome to the Chapter Resource Library.
Knowledge is not intended for, or to be understood by, the few.
It has been felt for some time that there is a need for education related resource material. For some members, this task is challenging, especially if there is no material readily available or a qualified member to delegate this responsibility to.
The material here, in this Chapter of Instruction, is an attempt to provide a toolkit of educational topics from which you may choose for personal growth or present at a Chapter of Instruction event, and it is hoped that the use of the information contained here will make that easier, more enjoyable, and ultimately more effective.
Without competent and effective working of degrees, candidates will not receive a clear imprint of the lessons in them, and they will not be encouraged to elevate and strengthen the fabric of their characters. And without proper protocol and etiquette, we may by our awkwardness embarrass, offend or annoy our Companions. The traditionally high standards of our Order would be difficult to maintain.
In assembling these documents, from education seminars conducted over the years, some material dating back to the earliest days of Royal Arch Masonry. These topics focus on some of the more frequent Chapter events; for example, there is a topic on the Reception of the Grand Superintendent, rather than Reception of the Grand Council. The reader is directed to the Protocol & Etiquette manual for guidelines on the less frequent event of Reception of the Grand Council. There are historical and philosophical topics that we hope will spark a thirst for knowledge that will turn into a passion for the Supreme Degree of the Holy Royal Arch.
Brethren and Companions are encouraged to submit additional educational topics to the Public Relations Committee which may be included here in the future.
