The future of our Royal Arch depends on recruitment and retention of members. Our new Almoner role is beginning to have a good effect on encouraging our existing members to attend and participate. Recruitment of Master Masons is now being encouraged by our Royal Arch Liason Officers in every lodge. We need MMs to realise that their journey in Free and Antient Masonry is incomplete until they have taken the fourth step. With this in mind two events, one in the North and one in the South, are coming up soon. All of us should encourage our craft lodge Masons who are not yet RA Masons to attend. In fact, why not take them?
