Today the Royal Arch Province should assemble for the Annual Convocation of Provincial Grand Chapter and the investiture of those Companions who have received a Provincial appointment or promotion, but sadly, for the second year in succession, this is not possible due to the ongoing restrictions affecting our Masonic activities because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Yet, hopefully, a resumption of more normality in our convocations now appears likely from Monday week, 19th July 2021, with HM Government’s provisional announcement relating to the lifting of the lockdown restrictions.
Further guidance on the full resumption of Masonic activities thereafter will be given to you in due course.
In the meantime I congratulate all those Companions whom I have been pleased to Re-appoint to an active rank in the Province, or confer a First Appointment to, or Promotion in, Provincial Grand Chapter Rank.
I confirm that these appointments or promotions take effect from Thursday 8th July 2021, from which date you may wear your new regalia.
I am very much looking forward to the beginning of September when we will be able to meet for our postponed Annual Convocation at Twickenham and to formally investing you all with your new rank.
Finally, please do keep safe and well and continue to follow the simple actions we must observe to continue to protect each other, our families, friends and loved ones.
With kindest fraternal regards
E. Comp. Peter R. A. Baker
ME Grand Superintendent in and over Middlesex
8th July 2021
