Meeting of MWS’, Generals’ and Recorders’ at Alderson House

A very successful meeting of MWS’, Generals’ and Recorders’ took place on Tuesday 29th October 2013 at Alderson House, Warwick.  It was attended by 45 senior Rose Croix Brethren and almost all Chapters in Warwickshire were represented.  The Inspector General gave a wide ranging address on the problems facing the Order in general and Chapters in Warwickshire in particular and his plans for the future. 

A full and frank question and answer session followed at which “no holds were barred”!  As a result, a number of ideas were put forward which will be followed up in the coming months.  A convivial buffet followed which was much enjoyed by all present.

Meeting of Perfectees

This year's meeting for all those Brethren Perfected into the Order in Warwickshire in the preceding Masonic year took place on Monday 14th October 2013 at Himalaya Chapter RC No 80. At this meeting, the Inspector General, V.Ill.Bro, Alan J Wellan 33°, delivered a paper on "Perfection in Perspective" which did much to explain the meaning behind our beautiful Ceremonies. He also took questions and, hopefully, cleared up any areas of concern that the new Perfectees may have had. The meeting was followed by an enjoyable Festive Board. The gratitude of the District goes to the Most Wise Sovereign and Brethren of Himalaya Chapter RC No 80 for hosting this most enjoyable evening.
