Welcome to the Great Priory Website

I find it hard to believe that we are at the end of another year. 2015 has been a very busy year for me and indeed for the Great Priory of Scotland, I extend my grateful thanks to all who accompanied me and assisted at visitations and Installations. Their support and friendship has been a great encouragement to me.

We are now in the season when we celebrate the birth of Jesus. An important time for all Christians across the world and an important time for our Christian community of the Temple. I am sure you will all be caught up in shopping, parties and family celebrations but I hope that amidst all this activity you find time for quiet contemplation on the true meaning of Christmas and in so doing find joy in your lives.

Please also remember in your thoughts and prayers those who face problems and difficulties at this time. Remember that charity is much more than simply giving money, it is in all that we say and do.

On behalf of my wife Margaret and myself I extend a very Happy Christmas and a good New Year to you and your families.
