On 18th December a good number of the members of Mercia Pretorian Preceptory No.682 including our Provincial Prior made a pilgrimage to Derbyshire to support the consecration of a new Preceptory, St Mary and St John the Baptist Preceptory No. 714, created as the Derbyshire Body Guard Preceptory.
Along with this we also made a presentation of a loan, that carries the caveat that when the next Provincial Body Guard Preceptory is consecrated anywhere in the country, they are to pass this to them to assist with the setup costs. We came in to possession of this when we were consecrated and so we carry on this tradition, adding interest of course.
We wish the Preceptory all the best for the future and I am sure we will see much inter provincial visiting.
