Consecration of two new Councils in Athens
In what was very much a flying visit, a team from the Grand Council of the Allied Masonic Degrees travelled to Greece in April to Consecrate the second and third Greek AMD Councils, namely Sophia Council, No. 279 and Fos Council, No. 280. Both ceremonies were performed on the same day at the Masonic Centre in Kifisia, a residential and shopping district north-east of Athens. In addition to the excellent turn out from Grand Council and other Brethren who made the trip from England, more than thirty local Founders and Brethren were present to take part and enjoy the ceremonies; carried out by Most Worshipful Brother Thomas Firth Jackson, Grand Master as the Consecrating Officer, assisted by Right Worshipful Brother Andrew Sweeney, P.G.S.W., as Installing Officer and the Grand Senior and Grand Junior Wardens, Right Worshipful Brothers Robert Morrow and Jonathan Roberts respectively.
