Greetings Most Worthy Companions, and all visitors to this Maryland York Rite Website.
I take this opportunity to welcome you to the home of The Most Excellent Hiram Holy Grand Chapter, Holy Royal Arch Masons, Prince Hall Affiliated, State of Maryland and Its Jurisdiction.
First, giving all Honor and Glory to the GREAT I AM, we must always thank him for the blessings he bestows upon us. Our strength and wisdom, comes from his generous giving. With these blessings it helps us to become even better men, and Royal Arch Masons.
I am deeply humbled to have been elected to serve as the Most Excellent Grand High Priest, of the Most Excellent Hiram Holy Grand Chapter (HRAM) for the 2018 – 2019 Capitular year. I am also very excited to take the reins of this great August Body, as this is a privilege and honor that I don't take lightly! I pledge to give my utmost effort to make sure that the Grand Staff Officers, MEHP’s, and all the Companions owing allegiance to this Grand Body, have what they need to be successful!
As the first step in York Rite Masonry, we have the opportunity and the responsibility, to set the example and provide our Ancient Craft brethren with the knowledge and information required, to complete their Masonic journey.
Royal Arch Masonry is not a religion, and does not endeavor to change one’s conception of God. Royal Arch Masonry regards your religious belief as your own; it does not attempt to influence your belief. It only asks that you have a belief in a Supreme Being. The motto of the Royal Arch is “Holiness To The Lord” and ever reminds us of the reverence due the Great and Beneficent Author of our existence, who is a Being without beginning of days or ending of years.
Lastly, I only hope and pray, that I serve as well as my predecessors before me, and know that with the support of the entire membership, we can only succeed!
Yours in 3x3,
Companion Dale E. Weaver
Most Excellent Grand High Priest
