Brethren, as we are fast approaching Christmas Day, may I take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New year.
I would like to thank the Past PG Masters, Commissioned and Elective Office-bearers of PG Lodge together with the Daughter Lodges for all their support during 2022.
I was delighted that the Province was again able to support many local and national organizations and charities and would congratulate everyone for their generosity and their outstanding efforts.
As we approach the end of 2022 and the start of a new year, we have a number of important events to look forward to.
On Sunday 29th January 2023, a Provincial Grand Lodge Divine Service will be held in Lyle Kirk, Greenock at 2pm. The service, which will be conducted by the Revd Jonathan Fleming, assisted by Past PG Chaplain Revd Bro David Mitchell and PG Chaplain Bro George J Carson, is open to all brethren and their families.
This will be an In Memoriam service, serving as a tribute to, and a record of, every brother of the Province who passed to the Grand Lodge Above during the Covid 19 pandemic.
At the beginning of February our PG Master Designate Bro John W Black and his team of Commissioned Office -bearers, commence their 5 Year Commission . With the Annual Communication of Provincial Grand Lodge being held within Lodge Doric Kilwinning No 68, in Port Glasgow on Friday 3rd February 2023.
