Welcome from the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler

Firstly I would like to welcome all readers to the website of the Provincial Grand Conclave of East Scotland. The Province was consecrated on 5th September 1992 by the Grand Supreme Ruler Most Worthy Brother Colonel Geoffrey Seymour Hamilton Dicker CBE TD when he installed Right Worthy Brother Stanley Thomas Geddes as the first Grand Supreme Ruler of the Province until 2001.

Since then there have now been four holders of this office, Right Worthy Brother Norman Collin, 2001 until 2006; Right Worthy Brother John Lawrence Ward Read, 2006 until 2011; Right Worthy Brother Ian Paterson Duff 2011 until 2017; and now myself, Right Worthy Brother Morgan McDonald.

Make 2018 the year where we all try to introduce a new member into our special Order and spread the biblical story of David and Jonathan to as many Freemasons as possible.

Within the Province we have seven Conclaves. Six of them initiate Brethren into the Order and one is a Supreme Rulers Conclave which has been names after our first Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, Stanley T Geddes. The other six Conclaves are Claverhouse of Dundee, Fair City (Perth), Soutra Aisle (Bonnyrigg), Inchcolm (Cowdenbeath), St Michael Linlithgow (South Queensferry), and Roman Brig (Musselburgh).

There are 32 Provinces within the United Kingdom, 3 of which are in Scotland. The Order is governed by the Grand Conclave of the Order of Secret Monitor out of Mark Masons Hall in St James’s Street in London by the current Grand Supreme Ruler Most Worthy Brother Andrew Christopher Sweeney.

The Order is based upon the great friendship between David (father of King Solomon) and Jonathan (son of King Saul). If anyone is interested in joining this marvellous Masonic Order, please contact our Provincial Grand Recorder, Worthy Brother Martyn William Greene at the following email address; pgrecorder@pgceastscotland.org.uk
