4 in 1 - This is major Fund-Raising Event in support of Festival 2022.
Saturday 11 March 2023 at Kings Heath Freemasons Hall
The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, Stephen Wyer, is taking the Chair, supported by the Officers of the participating Lodges, to conduct a marathon of personally performing four ceremonies in one day, a gargantuan task for anyone. An Initiation, a Passing, a Raising and finally the Installation of the new Worshipful Master using the Extended Worcestershire Workings. These are real Candidates undergoing real ceremonies, not enactments.
Dofra Lodge No 5775 of Northfield, is the sponsoring Lodge and by dispensation, will move to Kings Heath for the day which is its usual scheduled Installation day and will also have the pleasure of an Initiation. The Candidate for Passing is a member of Lechmere Volunteer Lodge No 1874 of Kings Heath. The Candidate for Raising is a member of St John's Lodge 6414 of Kidderminster.
Every member of the Worcestershire Province is urged to support the PGM in this incredible feat by donating to and boosting the Festival Fund as it nears its conclusion.
Brethren of all Masonic Ranks are encouraged to attend this marathon event at various times throughout the day to see and support the PGM at work. Those who have just been through a ceremony or those who will in the near future be conducting a ceremony, should come along and see this masterclass in Freemasonry.
