    David Staples Resigning as U.G.L.E.'s CEO and Grand Secretary

    Joining Mark

    It was a really lovely ceremony, well carried out by my father in law and the rest of the brethren. Sadly, the APGM was unable to attend but he arranged for the DPGM to visit instead. To top it all off, two days later I attended the Provincial RAM Assembly as the province's newest Royal Ark...

    Joining Mark

    Necroposting on my own thread but it seemed the most appropriate place... After almost two years since I was first proposed (stupid COVID getting in the way), tonight I should be elevated into the Royal Ark Mariners Lodge moored to my Mark lodge. I'm really looking forward to the ceremony and...

    Is there any lodge in tunisia

    Yes, I suspect you're correct. It just surprised me that someone could read your straightforward response and come to the conclusion that you were attacking their motives and desires even with a language barrier. But, well, the Internet... Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk

    Your GL's position on reading Ritual versus reciting Ritual by memory

    Nothing should be read here, barring the chaplain's prayers. The IPM and secretary may have a ritual book open to assist prompting the master and everyone else respectively. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk

    Grand Lodge directive to violate Masonic Law

    I don't disagree that you should follow your conscience. I would also like to add for information for those who are interested in the differences between jurisdictions that here in UGLE-land, using Emulation ritual, we only hoodwink the candidate in the first degree.

    New UGLE Universities Scheme Outreach Video

    Then you have read it entirely wrong. There are two grand lodges in the UK for women, the Order of Women's Freemasons and the Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons. They have both been in existence for the better part of a century, having formed in the early 20th. UGLE, whilst not...

    Indeed, as Brother JC mentions, the wearing of chains and collars is governed by rules 254-264 of our Book of Constitutions. See this link: The chains worn by present Grand Officers and Deputy/Assistant Provincial* Grand Masters are, I...
