Royal & Select Master Ritual, 2018 Provisional Edition

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Provisional Royal and Select Master Ritual books have arrived! We took delivery yesterday, and the General Grand Master reviewed the product. These are the 4.25” x 5.5” pocket editions that are spiral bound. We are charging $6.00 for each plus shipping, and they may be ordered by Grand Recorders either directly or through the website (when you are logged in). Over the next week, we will get all the existing orders shipped, and are ready for new orders.

This ritual is designed to be both an interim solution and a cross-jurisdictional tool. While you are using or reviewing it, please note anything that might improve it. These suggestions should be submitted to this office and the Committee on Ritual well before the Triennial in September of 2020. Errors, corrections, and omissions are especially welcome regarding the existing text and plates; but if you have a tradition that has been standard in your Jurisdiction, please just label it as such and submit that as well. While every submission may not be included, a record of differences will be helpful for everyone and also provide great information for those ritual scholars among us!

Grand Recorders order here (click) - remember to login using the "Members Area" link at the bottom of the page.
