WIGAN & DISTRICT GROUP – ANNUAL CHURCH SERVICE 2017
at St Matthews Church, Billinge Road, Highfield, Wigan.
The Group Chairman extends an invitation to all brethren and Companions of the Group to attend our Annual Church Service which will be held on Sunday 22nd October 2017 commencing at 3.00 p.m. in St Matthews Parish Church, Billinge Road, Highfield.
The Service will be led by Herbert Stockley, with the Bishop of Liverpool delivering the Address.
FULL DRESS MASONIC CRAFT / ROYAL ARCH REGALIA CAN BE WORN
Masters may wear their collar and gauntlets and SW and JW may wear their collars and gauntlets too. It has become the practice for Brethren to sit with their families and friends, whether in regalia or not. We would also be delighted to have the company of members of other Orders meeting in the Group; though they must of course receive the requisite authority to wear the Regalia of their Order.
The Mayor of Wigan, Councillor Bill Clarke and the Mayoress Mrs Joan Clarke have accepted an invitation to attend.
It is also hoped that you will also be able to join us for light refreshments after the Service in the adjacent Church Hall. There is to be an evening Dinner at Ashton MH, Bryn, which is expected to be very popular, and will be only available for those attending the Service in the afternoon.
The Group Chairman looks forward to meeting as many members and their Wives or Partners as possible.
