Royal Arch Appointments and Promotions for 2019/20

I am pleased to announce the following senior appointments and re-appointments in the Royal Arch Executive: –

• E. Comp. Martyn Patrick Farrell, PGSwdB and E. Comp. Michael Karn, PAGDC have respectively been re-appointed as Deputy Grand Superintendent and 3rd Provincial Grand Principal.

• E. Comp. John Culling, PAGDC has asked to retire as 2nd Provincial Grand Principal due to ill health. Unfortunately, he has recently been diagnosed with severe liver cancer, which is non-operable and is being sent home from hospital today to be with his family. Both Shirley and John request that people do not phone or visit them, however any messages via text or email will be welcomed. John has served this Province very well for many years, first as a Royal Arch Visiting Officer, then as an Assistant to the Provincial Grand Principals for 3 years from 2011 until 2014, and subsequently as 2nd Provincial Grand Principal for 5 years from 2014 until 2019. I am sure that you will all join me in sending our very best wishes to him, Shirley and their family at this very difficult time.

• To succeed E. Comp. John Culling, I have appointed E. Comp. John Louis Eynon, PDepProvGDC as 2nd Provincial Grand Principal. E. Comp. Eynon has also recently been honoured by the Most Excellent the First Grand Principal with an appointment to the rank of Past Grand Standard Bearer in Supreme Grand Chapter and will be invested with this rank at the Annual Investiture to be held at Freemasons Hall, London on Thursday 25 April 2019. I am sure that you will wish to join me in congratulating him on both appointments.

• I have re-appointed E. Comps. Christopher John Weeks, PAGDC, Andrew Paul Elliott, PAGDC and Peter Michael De Wolfe, PGStB as Assistants to the Provincial Grand Principals.

All these appointments and re-appointments will be confirmed and take effect from the date of the Annual Convocation of Provincial Grand Chapter, which is to be held at The Stoop, Harlequin FC, on Tuesday 9 July 2019.
