Education and Development Committee

Further Information

Introduction

Each month when we visit our Lodge or Chapter the evening should be special and memorable, so that we look forward to our next meeting with keen anticipation. That may involve ensuring the company is good, the venue, meal and service are excellent and, as far as the meeting itself is concerned, that we learn something in an enjoyable, dignified and entertaining manner.

The latter is where your Mentor, District Mentor and indeed this committee can help: There should never be a masonic evening in which the business agenda fails to contain some valued masonic education, a short talk, a paper followed by a debate, some questions and answers etc.

Similarly the mentor, or whoever has responsibility for guiding and supporting the new brethren in your Lodge or Chapter, may want access to material that helps him to explain the ritual and symbolism, leading the new mason progressively to higher planes of understanding. The material here will help with this too.

More ambitiously, you may be running a hosted meeting and desire a ritual walkthough and explanation, as where a narrator explains a ritual demonstration at various points during the workings. Such papers are available through the District Mentors.

The Education and Development Materials Subcommittee is responsible for the production of nearly all the material available through this page and the work of the committee is designed to complement and support to the best of its ability the work of the Provincial Grand Mentor and Provincial Grand Orator. The table below take you to various places where the range of educational materials available are displayed / downloadable.

We hope you find this helpful and we will be grateful to receive any comments, suggestions for future materials or other feedback.
