Degree Practices


The DDGM, R.W. Bro. Les R. Vass along with W. Bro. Allison Gowling have arranged a series of workshops for the Brethren of District “B” in an attempt to gain consistency and better proficiency in our rituals and floor work. The upcoming workshops will cover the 1st Degree, 2nd Degree, 3rd Degree, Ceremony of Installation & Investiture and the Masonic Memorial Service. The dates, times, locations and facilitators of each workshop are outlined below.

Resources used will be the Book of the Work, the Mechanics of the Work, the Ceremony of Installation & Investiture as well as other booklets and manuals as they relate to the specific topics. It is our sincere hope that as many Brethren as possible would attend and support this important Masonic Education initiative.
