Loyal Manor Lodge will welcome a team from the Metropolitan Grand Chapter who will deliver a presentation entitled at Portland Masonic Hall, 1 Victoria Square, Portland DT5 1AL on Friday 26 April 2019, at 6.15pm

This educational initiative is a key element within the 'Initiation to Exaltation' Masonic journey. It introduces the Holy Royal Arch (or Chapter) to new Master Masons or indeed re-introduces the Order to Craft Masons who might have been members, or used to go, but who found it difficult to understand and lapsed, or those for whom it did not 'click'.

'Talking Heads' is a short playlet of an encounter between two lodge members; one an experienced Past Master (and Royal Arch Companion) and the other a Master Mason curious to know more. It covers the history of the Order, explanations of the regalia, links to the Craft, why the Royal Arch is the climax and completion of pure Ancient Freemasonry, the time and financial commitments involved in being a member, how to discover more and how to find a Chapter to join.

The encounter starts in the anteroom just outside the lodge room at a Craft meeting with the two brothers opening their cases and getting prepared for their meeting. It lasts about 35 minutes and covers questions ranging from idle curiosity 'why is it a separate Order?' to more personal speculations such as 'what is the Master Mason in the 21st century missing by not being a member of the Royal Arch?'

The presentation has been performed over 207 times with 40 Provincial appearances. We anticipate that this event will be extremely popular.
