Provincial Grand Chapter of Dorset

The official website of the Dorset Royal Arch

Welcome to the Provincial Grand Chapter of Dorset

The Provincial Grand Chapter of Dorset is the official governing body for Royal Arch Masonry in Dorset.

The Holy Royal Arch is an integral part of Pure Ancient Freemasonry. It has been variously described as the 'essence of Freemasonry'; the 'foundation and keystone of the whole Masonic structure'; and 'the root, heart and marrow of Freemasonry'. Every Master Mason has, and should take, the opportunity of discovering these qualities for himself by joining the Holy Royal Arch.

Anyone can join Royal Arch Masonry if they are a member of a Masonic Lodge. The Royal Arch enables Freemasons to expand the ceremonial and spritual side of Freemasonry and is open to men of all faiths.

As in The Craft, the ritual takes the form of allegory, but the Holy Royal Arch is concerned with encouraging the spiritual aspects of life without compromising or encroaching on an individual's belief or religion.

The ceremony in the Holy Royal Arch is colourful, thought-provoking and uplifting.
