Knights Templar support Royal Arch

by Peter Gmail Wells

The Order of Knights Templar supports the Holy Royal Arch.

The Knight Templar Provincial Priory of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire has seen a remarkable growth in numbers over the last few years, and we are inextricably linked to the Holy Royal Arch as being a Companion is the qualifying requisite to becoming a Knight.

On the 10th May 2023, twelve Knights joined the Charles Nicholl Chapter No.7318 to show our support for the Holy Royal Arch, a further two Knights applied to join on the same evening and since then we have a Craft Member ready to join, and we are in talks with two further potential Candidates as well as two more joining members.

With 34 Companions present, to see the Chapter room full of existing and joining Companions, made for a fantastic evening, thoroughly enjoyed by all. The heartfelt appreciation expressed by the Charles Nicholl Chapter was incredibly moving and the future of this close association of the two Orders promises to have great potential. The past M.E.G.S and the Provincial Prior, taking the Offices of “Z” and “H” shows the commitment being made for the success of this Chapter.

Our aim is to hold a “blue table” at our Festive Boards whereby Craft members will be invited to attend, and freely and informally discuss the possibility of joining the Holy Royal Arch, likewise, Companions can do the same, with regard to joining the Christian Order of Knights Templar.

There is no specific Craft Lodge associated to the Charles Nicholl Chapter, so we are keen for any Lodges that don’t have associated Chapters to give us the opportunity to welcome any enquiries that their Brethren have about the Royal Arch, and indeed the Order of Knights Templar.  

We are also interested in making contact with Companions who have become dormant in the Order and maybe only participate as “country members”. Please make contact with our Scribe Ezra, robin.kent@live.com, and you would be most welcome to attend our next meeting, the Festive Board, or both.

To find out more about joining the Holy Royal Arch or the fascinating history of the Order of Knights Templar and of course, the Knights of Malta, please contact: deanwhite232@hotmail.com. 

We look forward to seeing you at a Charles Nicholl Convocation in the near future.

Yours, sincerely and fraternally, and in the “Bonds of the Order”
