Day 78 of 100: The Installation Ceremony

Day 78 out of 100 to Learn Masonic Ritual, getting closer to the end!

So yesterday we finished off the Third Degree by closing the Lodge in all Degrees. That concludes our first run the Raising ceremony, and we’ll have another couple of run throughs, but first…

Revising Masonic Ritual, Day 78 of 100: Revising The Installation Ceremony (And Again!)

In my book Investing the Officers starts on page 214 with the IPM, then picks up with the Senior Warden on page 223, through the Offices to page 235, then Resuming is on page 68 and Closing the Lodge is pages 62-65.

We’ll have another quick run through revising the Installation ceremony today. We are still on the revision, not rehearsal, stage though I do recommend saying it aloud. Still keep the book by you as if you’re like me you still have the odd bit where your mind goes blank and you need a prompt.

If possible have someone else hold the book and correct you as soon as make a mistake and offer a prompt – but only when you request it.

It’s also worth bearing in mind any thing else you need to prepare ahead of your Installation. Being a little over three weeks away you should have the received the summons by now from the Secretary so make sure you have forwarded it onto your guests.
