Once again, the annual divine service of Provincial Grand Lodge took place on Sunday 23rd May at St. Serf's Parish Church, Lochgelly lead by Depute Provincial Grand Master Brother Reverend Andrew Paterson, who once again led our devotions in his own inimitable way. His thought-provoking sermon was based on "Song of Songs" and the "Gospel of John", and while he guided us most firmly in our devotions and Christian duty he also encouraged us to smile and enjoy God's gifts. He was ably assisted by our Provincial Grand Chaplains Brothers Bill Robertson., Bill Dougall and Iain Cougan. Here is a selection of photos from the day.

Bro. Ronnie Hall couldn't wait to get into church
More of the cream of Scottish Freemasonry
(Note the droop in the shoulders of
the Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies
as the strain of trying to organise the procession takes its toll)

This photo was taken before Tayport F.C. won promotion to the East Super League which may account for Bro. Bert's sombre expression.
All in All another happy day.
Many thanks to all who assisted, not least
the minister and session of St. Serf's Parish Church, Lochgelly for the use of their church
and the brethren and wives of Lodge Minto for supplying the tea and scones afterwards.
