Admiration Chapter U.D. is a brand new chapter of the Royal Arch of Illinois, which meets at the Homer Temple (IL). The chapter is a little different than most Royal Arch Chapters as they focus primarily on Masonic education. They hope to not only enhance the knowledge of Admiration Chapter members, but hope to become a resource to Blue Lodges in their region in improving their educational programs. Admiration Chapter has completed all their work, and passed all the requirements to receive a charter for the Grand Chapter of Illinois and will receive that charter in the Spring of 2017. This was a short presentation at the Chapter’s first Saints John Day Feast on December 29th, 2016.
