OCTOBER 2020

**Welcome to YOUR website. Hopefully the members of the Province will wish to submit items and photos for inclusion to share the joys of their Conclave meetings with the wider OSM audience. Items should be submitted to the Webmaster.**

The Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler’s September message can be read here. The Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler recently made an announcement regarding Provincial Dues and can be read on the PGSR News page. The Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler will issue his next update on the November Notice Board unless there are significant changes in the interim.

The Most Worthy Grand Supreme Ruler has invited 9 brethren to accept appointment or promotion in Grand Conclave. Details of these appointments are published on the Grand Honours page.

Following the lifting of the General Suspension of Freemasonry the majority of our meeting places remain closed for business and some areas are subject to local lock downs therefore it is anticipated the majority of scheduled meetings will be either subject to local suspensions or abandoned due to being unable to summon a quorum.

As we continue adapting our Freemasonry, Visiting Deacons are reminded of their duties to maintain contact with the brethren  in their care and ensure assistance is made available where required.

** Roses Conclave No 459 will hold it’s next meeting (whenever that may prove to be) at Greenhead Masonic Hall rather than West Vale with a view to changing their by-laws to make this their new home. Address details have been placed on the Conclave page.

The Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler reiterates his wish that Brethren consider attending other Provincial Grand Conclaves and a letter of the subject can be viewed here and details of invitations are available on the Events page.

Don’t forget the Meetings Schedule which shows the dates of Conclaves and when available will show planned ceremonies of each Conclave as well as the Calendar which has details of other Conclaves as well as Provincial Meetings.



We now have a Facebook Closed Group specifically for members of the Order of the Secret Monitor, or those interested in joining. To be added to this group please contact the Right Worthy Brother Graeme Hutchinson.

The Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler recommends Princes of the Order consider joining the Ancient & Masonic Order of the Scarlet Cord, members within the Province can be identified by this lapel pin.
