ESSEX CORNERSTONE CHAPTER

Following the success of the Essex Cornerstone Lodge, we are pleased to announce plans for the consecration of our own Royal Arch Chapter – the Essex Cornerstone Chapter.

Continuing our desire to create the most dynamic new and young masons’ club in England, we feel that having our own Chapter will be the next step in our evolution.

Our Chapter will be a ‘working’ Chapter allowing young masons the opportunity to be exalted into the Royal Arch in Essex.

We are planning on holding these Chapter meetings on the same day as our Cornerstone Lodge meetings. This will reduce pressure on your valuable free time and also to help keep costs low but having a joint Festive Board (rather than paying for two!). This is something new for the Province and we think this will be a really popular approach.
