Grand Chapter News and Information



Companions, as we begin our new Capitular year, some of our Chapters will be going dark for a couple months following the election and installation of a new corps of officers. Hopefully, all chapters will have some activity this summer and everyone will enjoy time with family and friends. This is a great time to invite prospective members to a social event.

I want to extend a personal invitation for you to join us at the 2023 Grand Convocation of the Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons of Ohio. Information about the convocation and the hotel is found below. A separate form is included for making meal reservations. The Grand Convocation will be opened at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 4, 2023 by Willis Chapter No. 131. A complete schedule of events and times will be sent by the Grand Chapter Office and posted on the Grand Chapter website in September.

Please call (614) 885-1885 and select option #2 or make the reservation on-line with the following link: Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Ohio. When making reservations, ask for the special Royal Arch room rate for October 3, 4, and 5. Reference the 3-letter code RAA to receive the discounted rate of $115.00 plus tax. The cut-off date for you to receive these rates is September 19, 2023. There are deadlines, so don’t procrastinate. Reserve your rooms by July 15 for a special bonus – receive a free breakfast for up to 2 occupants for each room night paid.

It has been a great experience serving the Grand Chapter and representing this fine body at many events and for many organizations. We have many accomplishments and much to be proud of as the largest Capitular jurisdiction. It is my sincerest hope that all Companions have rededicated themselves to Freemasonry in this “Holiness To The Lord” year.
