Dear Companions,

May I, on behalf of myself and my wife Karen, wish you and your families a very happy and healthy Easter.

We are living through unprecedented times with many of our companions living in isolation, unable to meet with friends and family. Others have concerns for their livelihood and the welfare of their families and loved ones.

However, I have every confidence that Freemasonry in general and the Royal Arch in particular will rise to the challenges and keep in contact with both our more vulnerable and newer members until this period of uncertainty is over and we are able to meet and enjoy each other’s companionship once again.

Should you or your loved ones require any help during this uncertain time please do not hesitate to contact either me personally or the Provincial Almoner in complete confidence. There is a great deal of assistance available both nationally and locally.

Easter is a period of hope and renewal and we must look forward with confidence to a time when the world and Freemasonry have returned to normality.

Please follow the advice we have received from the Government and keep yourselves both safe and sane.

I look forward to meeting you again and enjoying your company in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, I send my best wishes to you and your families.

Kind regards

Yours faithfully and fraternally
