Since the last update we have made substantial progress with a number of initiatives within the Province:
- Intender Training.
The first Level 2 course is scheduled for June and those successful with the Level 1 course will have the opportunity to further develop themselves as Senior Intenders again to the benefit of the Lodges and the Province.
2. New Intrants Handbook.
The Handbook will be with the printers shortly and we anticipate distribution before the end of April. It describes how the Craft operates and will answer the “Frequently Asked Questions “we hear from our New Members.
- Education Manual
We have at present, a small working party developing an Education Manual which, when complete, will be distributed to each Lodge. Brethren as they progress through their Degrees will receive a section at a time building up into the full manual for their ongoing reference , understanding and knowledge.
The manual will have a section on each of the 3 Degrees plus a section on the Mark. It will contain useful explanatory papers to assist understanding of the Craft with useful references and a recommended reading list along with links to useful Masonic Websites.
4. Minimum 6 weeks between Degrees Trial
Since the turn of the year I have had the opportunity to talk to a number of Lodges about the merits of extending the period between Degrees from the current minimum of two weeks to the suggested 6 weeks.I believe that a move to a minimum of 6 weeks between degrees will be to the benefit of the candidates and in the whole scheme of things that is the most important consideration. I`d be happy to address any Lodge on the benefits of this recommended change.
As you can see there is plenty going on in Renfrewshire East and we are grateful for the continuing support and commitment of the Lodges and Brethren. Please support our various Events in the run up to the recess.
