  3. Might be Order of Italian Sons, Officers are called Heralds. Google them and you will find the Ritual to compare with the one in the book. "The Order of the Sons of Italy in America was founded in 1905 in New York City as an ethnic fraternal society for American men and women of Italian descent. The order publishes OSIA News monthly; State Newspapers monthly; a national directory; Italian-American Characters in Television and Entertainment; and a Survey of Italian-American Representation. There were 500,000 members in 1995. The Sons of Italy was founded at the time of many other ethnic fraternal organizations, but instead of evolving into an insurance society, it remained more involved with cultural, educational, and charitable work, as well as establishing a Commission for Social Justice, the anti-defamation arm of the organization. The Sons also fund scholarships; civic programs; its own Garibaldi-Meucci Museum; and general charities such as the March of Dimes. Many of its members are apparently not Italian-Americans, but people of other ancestry who support the goals and works of the Sons of Italy. The ritual is of peripheral interest only, but the Sons do don uniforms for parades. The structure is the familiar three-level arrangement of Lodge, State Lodge (formerly Grand Lodge) and Supreme Lodge (national)."
  4. Also to set up a new Lodge you would need the appropriate number of other Masons of sufficient rank as defined by the regulations laid down by the Masonic authority you wish to form a Lodge under. I cannot see such a project coming to fruition. My question is, assuming that you hail from either Scotland or Ireland, and that you are determined to set up a new Lodge; what is the issue of forming a Lodge under the authority which rules the area you are in? Freemasonry is universal and the although there is slight variation in form between the three home GLs the content is consistent.
  5. Either way I would play from the West End 😜 but I am Perfect!
  6. Taylor it to your own game style then 😝
  7. Are you Hampshire then NQSU? I was originally a Pompey Mason........
  8. In Cambs we do both, Lodges handle resignations initially but inform Province via our internal online system. This means Lodges can do exactly as Trouillogan says and attempt to settle the matter in Lodge, but if not Province can try to help find another solution, and at worst can have the information regarding why someone leaves and address any consistent patterns. The nice thing about a small Province is the feeling we are all on the same team and Province is there to help rather than impose......
  9. What has really helped this in Cambs is that every Lodge has some form of Lodge profile. That way once prospective Candidates have had an initial series of contacts, are deemed serious and fit the basic criteria for becoming a Mason they can see which of a number of Lodges may appeal to them.
  10. We ever you go and and whatever you do.........
  11. I am pretty sure I married her........
  12. It might be American Armorial for the Gibbs family: https://www.americanheraldry.org/heraldry-in-the-usa/roll-of-early-american-arms/g
  13. Here is a starting point: http://www.gadu.org/wp-content/uploads/kabballah-and-freemasonry.pdf
  14. Is that Mark and Passing of Veils before HRA a la our Caledonian Brethren?
  15. If you could redesign regular Freemasonry to include any Rite or Order, which ones would you include? Or do you think that having a selection of (relatively) independent Orders to choose after a Craft (perhaps + Mark) and HRA backbone is the best way to do things.......
