An Invitation 

Welcome to our 2022 Grand Proclamation

 On behalf of all New Zealand Companions, it is my sincere pleasure to extend a very warm invitation to our sister Constitutions, visitors, ladies and friends to join with us in Auckland, the beautiful City of Sails, to commemorate the 130th Convocation of the Supreme Grand Royal Arch Chapter of New Zealand which will be held over the weekend 11-13 March 2022.

We do look forward to welcoming you on this important occasion and your presence will ensure its success.

Over the past two years, the harsh reality of Covid-19 has deprived our colourful Masonic mosaic of so many opportunities to gather in harmony to share and participate in the celebrations associated with our various Orders. May the 2022 year be one which heralds a new era of optimism, of resurgence and of mutual co-operation for our Fraternity.  

And may that special bond of companionship which has always existed between New Zealand and Australia be once again resumed with undiminished vigour.

The 2022 Convocation will be held at The Parnell Conference Centre which is centrally located and convenient to many of the major attractions Auckland has on offer.

To ensure your stay with us is an enjoyable one, the weekend has been planned with you in mind and we hope that when we bid you farewell, you will take with you many new friendships and long-lasting memories of an enjoyable and happy time in our company.

Kathy and I; and indeed all companions; look forward to renewing our acquaintance with many of our friends and having this opportunity to add many more.

      ME Companion Ron Lane

      First Grand Principal


The Companions of Auckland, look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 Convocation in our city.  We hope you will have an enjoyable time at our various sessions, and we can promise you some interesting developments for the future of Royal Arch Masonry.   We hope you will also be able to take some extra time to sightsee and do some shopping.
