On Monday 17th January 2022, Freemasons’ Hall in Leicester was bustling with several lodges and Royal Arch meetings taking place all on the same evening. In the Morley Lodge room, Granite Chapter held their 123rd meeting which was a special occasion not only for their newest member but also for his father, who was present to welcome him into the Royal Arch.
Ryan Kirkpatrick joined St Deny’s Lodge on the 23rd February 2017, where his father has been a member since 2012. After patiently waiting for Freemasonry to resume, Ryan decided to join the Granite Chapter, where his father was only too pleased to visit and watch his son be exalted into the Royal Arch.
To make the evening special, the Deputy Grand Superintendent, Paul Wallace stepped in to lead the Chapter for the evening, adding an extra dimension of expertise and experience to the proceedings.
