It would be wonderful to see all Master Masons choose to complete their journey with their Exaltation into the Royal Arch and subsequent participation into the proceedings of their Chapter. But it must always be remembered that it is their personal choice to take that final and important step.

I hope more and more people my age join because it is a hobby that will guide you through life and make you into a better person, you see life differently and find yourself to be a more caring person.
I joined the Royal Arch as well as meeting new friends/companions I wanted to take my masonic education further. With some good guidance and knowledge I believe in time that I can help someone in their journey into the Royal arch.
I joined the Royal Arch as I saw it as a natural progression in the science of Freemasonry which would help increase my Masonic knowledge and understanding.
I particularly enjoy the Exaltation ceremony and relate to the spiritual aspects of my ongoing journey.
I joined as I saw it as a natural progression from craft and an opportunity to learn more widely about freemasonry, as well as the chance meet new people. I have found the order enjoyable and interesting; offering me the chance to enjoy masonry further.

Royal Arch felt like the next natural step in my masonic journey. More history, heritage and rituals – a deeper understanding of Freemasonry.
Royal Arch is vibrant. Vibrant in colours, learning and companionship.
I decided to expand my Masonic knowledge. By joining a chapter where a number of my lodge brethren were members. My Exaltation was a wonderful experience for me being full of colour. I would recommend the Royal Arch to any Master Mason.
I became a member of the Chapter following in the steps of my brother Warren who died at 39. I really enjoy the diversity between the Craft and Royal Arch the banners, candles, and robes etc,. I would recommend all Brethren to join the Royal Arch.
As I spent more time in my lodge I was keen to further my Masonic journey. Everyone suggested the Royal Arch to complete the Third Degree. The new appearance of a chapter was a surprise. The story was enlightening and put a new perspective on my Masonic understanding.

I planned to pass through the chair before joining Chapter but newly exalted companions from my lodge recommended that I join because it would complete my masonic journey. After 4 years in craft I decided to join chapter and have enjoyed the experience ever since.

At the age of 28 and just over a month of becoming a master mason, I was exalted into the Royal Arch. That is something I haven’t regretted. Having gone through my craft ceremonies, I felt a piece of the jigsaw was missing, and wanted to complete my final step to becoming a “complete Freemason”.
Chapter has brought with it new experiences, new insights and new Companions, all of which add to our pleasure and enjoyment of Freemasonry.
I joined Prince Edwin’s Chapter as I was keen to learn about the Royal Arch. I have found the history and tradition of the order absolutely captivating, my exaltation was incredible, so much colour, drama and historical ritual, which has left me feeling utterly privileged to be a part of something very special.
