Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Alberta
M. Ex. Comp. G.E. (Gerry) Tetzloff
Grand First Principal
GRAND CHAPTER of ROYAL ARCH MASONS of ALBERTA
2002 - 2003
It is indeed an honour and a privilege to be the first Grand First Principal of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Alberta to welcome the world to our Internet Web Page.
In the past, operative tools available to Royal Arch Masons were the square, level, plumb-rule, chisel, mallet and other such implements. Those implements evolved into symbolic or speculative tools to teach us the fundamental rules and tenants of our beloved Fraternity. As this Grand Chapter finally starts to catch up with the 21st Century of technology, it is our hope and prayer that the emerging tool of the computer and internet will bring light and understanding to the curious and promote a greater level of communication within our own Fraternity.
Master Masons are encouraged to read and research the papers contained within our library and use the many references and contacts to reach out and learn more about York Rite Masonry and the powerful step to become a Royal Arch Mason. The journey is educational, uplifting and well worth the time dedicated to knowing more about yourself and how Capitular Masonry will enrich your life.
To the Non-Masons who are reading this, you could take the very first step and become a Master Mason through a Craft Lodge. It is important that you come on your own free will and accord. In Alberta we strongly recommend a visit to the Grand Lodge of Alberta’s web site. We are confident that once you start your journey you will be returning to this site, and we will be here to assist with Faith, Hope and Charity.
May the Most High prosper your endeavors.
