Most Excellent Grand High Priest
Companion, Curtis L Gadsden

Greetings Companions,

I, Curtis Gadsden, Most Excellent Grand High Priest, take this opportunity to welcome you to the home of The Palmetto Grand Chapter, Holy Royal Arch Masons – Prince Hall Origin, State of South Carolina and Its Jurisdiction.

Royal Arch Masonry is not a religion and does not endeavor to change ones 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.

To the Master Masons of the Most Worshipful Palmetto Grand Lodge, having completed your degrees in Symbolic Masonry I hope that you will consider continuing your Masonic travel by advancing your education found in the study of the Chapter of Capitulary Degrees.

As it has been so eloquently stated; The Royal Arch Mason is the heart, root, backbone and marrow of Freemasonry.

Yours, Under the Arch
Curtis L Gadsden
Most Excellent Grand High Priest
