On behalf of the Provincial Grand Master Bro. Andrew E Paterson, can I thank all who attended our Annual Divine Service this afternoon.

Particular and grateful thanks are due to the Minister the Revd Maudeen Macdougall and the Session of Dysart and St Clair Parish Church for allowing the Service and participating within it.

Also to the Ladies of the Kirk for the tea and biscuits at the conclusion of the service.

The Provincial Grand Master also thanked Bro. Mark Clifford Provincial Grand Organist and Bro. Bob Ross Provincial Grand Piper for their musical accompaniment.

The brethren and the families of the Province were also extended a warm welcome. This welcome was further extended to our visitors from our Sister Provinces and the PGRAC of Fife and Kinross and the District Grand Priory.

All in all a wonderful way to conclude a busy Masonic season for the Province.

John 21 v1-14

1 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way:

2 Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together.

3 “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

4 Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

5 He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

7 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water.

8 The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.

9 When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.”

11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn.

12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.

13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.

14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.
