On behalf of the Companions of the Province the Right Distinguished Provincial Grand Summus extends congratulations and best wishes to Dist. Comp. James Henry Newman, O.B.E.; A.G.D.C. ; Prov,G.Reg. On his appointment as Provincial Grand Master for the Provincial Grand Lodge of Yorkshire, West Riding and Most Excellent Grand Superintendent in and over the Provincial Grand Chapter of Yorkshire, West Riding.

Companions (especially DC’s) are reminded that the 1st Grade ceremony should still be worked to the covid precaution ritual (i.e. based on the 1st rather than 2nd OSM ceremony as some recently admitted Companions are not yet Princes of the OSM. This will apply until reconsidered by the Grand Executive in January 2022 when consideration will be given to make this a permanent change

The revamped leaflet (March 2021) as seen presented to newly admitted Princes in your Conclaves is now available for download from the Why Join page of this website.

Don’t forget the Meetings Schedule which shows the dates of Consistories and when available will show planned ceremonies of each Consistory. as well as the Calendar which has details of other Consistories as well as Provincial Meetings.
