CEREMONIAL DEDICATION OF CARPET

Programme

Right Worshipful Master Bro. Stuart Fotheringham welcomed a large and distinguished deputation from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Lanarkshire (Middle Ward), headed by the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master Bro. William Perry, into the lodge at our Regular Meeting on Monday, 6th November, 2017, to carry out the ceremony of dedicating the new lodge carpet.

The ceremony began with the singing of the first verse of the 23rd Psalm.

The dedication was then carried out in a dignified and solemn manner by the Senior Provincial Grand Chaplain Bro. James Ferguson.

Bro. Ferguson spoke in great detail about the relevance of the carpet in our masonic rituals and also the significance of the various emblems within the design.

The Junior Provincial Grand Chaplain Bro. James Vasey pronounced the benediction and the ceremony concluded with the singing of the last verse of the 23rd Psalm.
