Grand First Principal’s message:

May 11, 2019

Welcome to the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Alberta’s Web-Site.

As Grand First Principal of the Jurisdiction I extend greetings to all our members and visitors.

I invite you to browse and use the information that is available. You will find information on the happenings in the Jurisdiction as well a plethora of papers and essays on the many aspects and elements of the organization.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information on membership or activities.

I will be visiting throughout the jurisdiction over the next twelve months and look forward to meeting and being in Chapter with all of you.


M. Ex. Comp. Rodney B. Ponech


This website is intended to be a resource for the Royal Arch Masons in Alberta plus allow others a portal into the wonderful world of York Rite Masonry that is alive and well in Alberta, Canada. It is our wish that Master Masons will find this site a wealth of information and allow easy contact to the individual Chapters within the length of their cabletow.  Master Masons are encouraged to partake in a daily lesson of research and instruction into the hidden mysteries of nature and science.  Becoming a Royal Arch Mason is a logical step in this direction with the contents of this site allowing answers to your questions and a direction to resources in order to obtain further clarifications if necessary.
