Grand High Priest’s Programs for 2016-2017

Every Grand High Priest seems to like to have a theme for their year to keep things on track and focused. This upcoming year, like those in the past, is filled with much hope and ambition. Our Companions have been telling us that they need help – resources, direction, plans, examples, programs, and participation. Your Grand Chapter has heard your pleas and is answering the call. But we will need everyone’s help to make Capitular Freemasonry one of the best parts of our Craft. We’ve created and continued programs that are aimed at improving our Chapters and enriching the experiences of our Companions.

New Programs

Whether it’s assisting your Chapter to find new members (and keeping them active!), helping you to bring back inactive members and keep them interested, or recognizing ritual skills and expertise at both the Companion- and Chapter-level, the Grand Chapter has the programs you and your Chapter want. We’re also upping our communication game, with a revamped Hiram’s Words, a new monthly newsletter (The Word), and daily activity and updates on our Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Twitter feed, and Instagram account.

Chapter and Companion Recognition

Not only are we revamping all of our Grand Chapter recognition programs, we’re even adding some new ones! Many are outlined here on our web site, but don’t be surprised if our Grand High Priest has a few up his sleeve to unveil at Grand Sessions.
