NEXT ROYAL ARCH MEETING:
Monday 19th May 2023. 6pm.
We are pleased to announce Excellent Companion Derek Knowlden has been appointed Provincial Grand Steward for the Provincial Chapter of Oxfordshire. He joins Excellent Companions Tom Byrne and Mark Baker on the active Provincial Team.
FROM THE PROVINCIAL GRAND CHAPTER
At the November meeting of Supreme Grand Chapter Jonathan Spence was formally obligated as the Most Excellent Pro First Grand Principal.
With the new Pro First Grand Principal comes new ideas and new drive for 2023, especially in two areas both of which will be a huge asset to the Royal Arch – firstly, the inextricable link with Craft masonry, followed by the suggestion of reviewing the format of our meetings. To illustrate these points, I use two quotes from his address to the Supreme Grand Chapter meeting

HERMES IS HERE!
Hermes is the new system that allows Secretary’s and Scibe E’s the ability to manage all the processes, previously done on paper, to be carried out on line.
This comprehensive system, which has taken two years to develop by UGLE is now being rolled out across the country. Oxfordshire is now ‘live’, and a number of brethren have been trained in its use as ‘Provincial Trainers’.
The list of trainers for the Province is:
Pat Wilmore, Tim Grier, Mark Slaymaker, Jim Young, Huw Shooter, Chris Cooper, Martin Green, Les Steward, Tom Byrne, David Robinson.
