Every year we as Royal Arch Masons are required to participate in a Religious Affirmation Ceremony. This may be held either in a public Religious structure with a formalized service, in your regular meeting facility or any other suitable venue. This year we have scheduled this Ceremony to be held on October 21st at the Hyland Baptist Church, 4700 Silver Star Road in Orlando. The Service begins at 11:00 AM
Brother Dennis Ickes (Chaplin of Mokanna Lodge 329) is the minister of the Hyland Baptist Church. I am sure you all know Bro. Dennis. Brother Dennis serves our fraternity well by visiting all our Brothers and families who are sick in the Hospitals praying with them, and keeping a constant vigil over our sick and distressed brothers.
All York Rite Masons their friends and families are invited to attend the services. This is a great opportunity for us as Masons to get out into the community and participate. The Orlando Eureka Chapter No 7 attended these services last year and received cheerful and warm welcome by the church parishioners.
I hope to see you there and to worship with everyone. All are welcome regardless of your own faith. We all know prayer works, let us gather and pray together.

Excellent High Priest
