The Grand College of Rites is back in the game. it had been a few years since I had gotten anything from them but now that there is a new grand registrar, things seem to be shaping up well. Again, I expect it will be a while before everything is back up and running like it was a few years ago but hopefully they will get things in order. Keeping the records for a group this size has got to be a difficult task and I can imagine that the new brother who took over that job has some serious work cut out for him.
However, I am happy because I have a dues card again. I am up to date with everything and even have the latest volume of Collectanea they published.
If you were a fellow of the College and have gotten discouraged by the lack of communication, get back in touch through the grand registrar. He may tell you to do something different, but my instruction was to send a new petition with this year’s dues check to bring me back to current status. That was mostly so they could update their records, I understand.
Whatever you do, know that the GCR is back in business and steaming ahead.
