Hiram’s Words, our Quarterly Magazine

Every quarter, the Grand Chapter publishes its full-color, full-sized magazine, Hiram’s Words. This year, it’s back, bigger and better than before! With new Masonic writers, guest authors, featured columns, and more, the new Hiram’s Words is the go-to publication for Capitular Education.

Each issue will have a theme this year and we’re proud to announce them here:

October 2016: Royal Arch History
January 2017: Royal Arch Symbolism & Ritual
April 2017: Leadership, Management & Recognition
July 2017: The Future of Illinois Capitular Freemasonry

Each issue is available as a PDF and in Issuu format (a common, online magazine “flip book” style presentation that many consumer magazines are available in). You can download any past issue below or sign-up for our FREE electronic version. New this year: A paid (just $40) printed and mailed option so you can keep your very own copies in your Masonic library.
