Great Degree Work by Cryptic Council #6

It is with great talent that the Cryptic Council #6 “l’Amitié à l’épreuve” performed this magnificent ceremony.

Our Most Illustrious Grand Master Michel C. SABATIER expressed his satisfaction on the work done by the companions and on the dynamism of the Cryptic Councils of France which translate into eloquent figures: 158 Companions in 2017,  180 companions in 2018.

A dinner closed the day when 45 companions met, dinner that was also an opportunity to celebrate the 25 years of masonry of our Most Illustrious Grand Master, who was very moved by the cake made in his honor.
