Two new Councils in Greece

On Saturday 6th April, our past District Grand Chaplain, W Bro Louis Keats PGStB, acted as Grand Chaplain for the Consecration of two new Councils in Athens, Greece, at the request of the Grand Master MW Bro Thomas Firth Jackson.

Two new Councils in Greece

The new Councils were Sophia Council No 279 and Fos Council No 280. The Ceremonies and Orations were in English and well received by our Greek brethren. There was an interesting moment when the Censer used by the Grand Chaplain was knocked over by the acting Tyler and the Chaplain had to use an empty Censer during his perambulations.

Teams from both the Allied Masonic Degrees and the Masonic Order of Pilgrim Preceptors were in Athens from the Thursday to the Monday and attended a meeting of Parthenon Craft Lodge on Thursday evening, a special meeting in the Pilgrim Preceptors on Friday to Qualify 19 Founders for the Consecration in that Order on Sunday with W Bro Louis carrying out his role of V Ill Grand Chaplain – this time with a nice smoky Censer and a third Oration of the weekend!
