A Blueprint for Exiting the Suspension – Message from Edward R. Garty RAMGR

Brethren

Please find below a link to a letter from the Grand Secretary setting out a provisional blueprint to exit the current period of suspension of masonic activity.

In particular, the blueprint clarifies the point at which lifting of the suspension will be considered and the likely timetable thereafter. A similar communication is being issued by the United Grand Lodge of England today.

I want to draw your attention in particular to a point raised in this letter:

No masonic meetings where ritual and ceremonial are being performed may be transmitted by video conference or any other means. Separate guidance will be issued in relation to transacting administrative business only.

The situation is being kept under constant review with regular discussions taking place between the Grand Secretary and his counterparts at the United Grand Lodge of England and the Ancient & Accepted Rite.

Further information will be sent to you as the situation develops.

Best regards,

Edward R. Garty RAMGR
Provincial Grand Master for the Province of Middlesex
