Frederick Friday Preceptory is a very special Preceptory.
Its membership is exclusive to Installed Preceptors, and provides a forum for Preceptors and Past Preceptors from all over Kent to meet, exchange ideas, and attend specially arranged talks, presentations, and lectures.
It is named after Frederick William Friday, a most renowned Kent Freemason, who was Sub-Prior from 1956 to 1966, and then Provincial Prior from 1966 to 1978. He was also the Provincial Grand Master of the Mark Degree 1975 to 1978; Assistant PGM of East Kent Craft 1973 to 1978; Intendant General of the Red Cross of Constantine, and all-round busy man! The Preceptory was Consecrated in 1977.
Whereas usually all knights wishing to join a Preceptory must receive advance approval by the provincial prior, all Kent Provincial Officers have “blanket” approval to join this Preceptory.
Meetings take place on a Saturday morning, followed by lunch, and are usually attended by either the Provincial Prior, Sub-Prior or both.
Although membership is restricted, any knight may attend the meetings, so if you’re interested, contact the Registrar.
