A Week to Remember in the Life of the District.

From the pen of our Inspector General, V:.Ill:.Bro. Dr. Joseph F K Marzouk,FRCS (C/Th), 33o 

The first week in May is always the busiest week in the District Calendar, most especially this year. It included 4 chapter meetings, with a hive of activities, especially in Rainbow Hill, Worcester.

It sadly started with the surrendering of the Warrant of St. Theodore Chapter R.C. No. 887, on the 2nd of May, but happily, a bevy of its members joined St. Ann of Malvern R.C. Chapter No. 606, the following day, which brought the Past I.G. out of his retirement to represent the District and witness the Enthronement of a Past Sovereign of St. Theodore who then proposed 7 brethren of the former as Joining Members of the latter.

On that same night, the 3rd of May, at the nearby Kidderminster Masonic Centre, Breme Chapter, R.C. No. 862 conducted a Perfection and Enthronement Ceremonies, ironically by the members that joined them from Wenceslas Chapter R.C. No. 1114, which handed back the Warrant exactly a year ago. 

 The week then culminated with the Enthronement meeting of the oldest Chapter in the District, St. Dunstan's No. 12, once again meeting at Rainbow Hill in Worcester, where 23 Brethren gathered, including our own IG, the IG for Warwickshire District, V:.Ill:.Bro. Stephen Fowler, the Preceptor of the MRCCI, Ill. Bro. Charles Dyer, and members of his team. The Chapter saw an exemplification of the 2nd Point, which was performed in a perfect manner by the MRCCI Team. It was peppered by a commentary that was very generously consented to by the visiting IG of Warwickshire who was the immediate Past Preceptor of the MRCCI, and was very well received. The explanation of the Jewel and Collar, the Signs, and the Words were perfectly delivered by E&P Bro Phil Abram. The evening, and that busy week, ended with an almost perfect Enthronement Ceremony by the retiring MWS of the new Sovereign, both 18th Degree brethren, the evening ended with a convivial dinner. I can honestly say that the future of the Chapter and the District is bright. 

 The whole of those 4 occasions, though tinged with the sadness of losing one of our Chapters and the news of the passing of Dr. H John White, Past IG between 1997 and 2012, nevertheless the above-mentioned successes brought joy and satisfaction which is appreciated by all.

Breme Chapter No. 862

On Wednesday 3rd May some 19 members, including the District Recorder, met at the Masonic Hall, Kidderminster to conduct a Perfection Ceremony and the Enthronement of the MWS Elect.

Earlier in the day the Chapter had been faced with a difficult situation when the MWS had to withdraw from the meeting due to work pressures.

The Chapter however overcame that difficulty with Ill. Bro. Rob Waldron, 30o agreeing to take the Chair.

The Chapter then held a successful ballot and then Perfected Bro. John Fennell in a very good ceremony.

This was followed by the acting MWS Enthroning the MWS Elect in fine style.

On the Second Risings the District Recorder congratulated the Chapter on the way they had overcome their difficulties and delivered such a successful Perfection and Enthronement.

Following the 3rd Point and closure of the Chapter the brethren retired to enjoy an excellent and convivial Festive Board

He added that he sincerely hoped that the members remaining both within the District and those who had now left the area, would find suitable Chapters to join to ensure their continued membership in our beautiful Christian Order.
