Grand Chapter Program Outlines

Your Grand Chapter has created a number of programs and services designed to help build membership, create opportunities for participation by members, recognize and celebrate ritual perfection, leadership skill building, and recognition at a personal and Chapter level. Take a look at the major programs below and click here to download any forms, flyers, or other instructions you may need.

Membership Building

Grand Lodge-Grand Chapter Cooperation: The Most Worshipful Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Illinois has agreed to provide the Grand Chapter with a quarterly list of newly raised Master Masons. A special letter will be sent to these Masons from the Grand High Priest, pointing them to a special section of where the Brother can learn more about Capitular Freemasonry and make contact to take the next step to becoming a Companion.

“Completing the Craft,” a Chapter-to-Lodge Presentation: This presentation uses aspects of Blue Lodge ritual as well as lecture and degree references to build the realization that the Master Mason’s Masonic journey has only just begun – and that the Royal Arch truly holds the answer to many of the questions they may not even realize they have. Want more information on this? Check with your Chapter’s DDGHP.
