I am writing to share my excitement with you.

One year after my initiation, I am going to be passed to FC tomorrow evening.

I am happy but nervous. It seems to me like I am going to see the second episode of the initiation.

I don’t know what to expect really.

The Fellow Craft is my favorite degree. I just conferred it on five brothers. You will enjoy the evening and learn much that is useful to every day life.

Just go with the flow, secure in the knowledge that every Mason in history has gained thereby. Enjoy.

Hey, just have a look at my signature now :) I am FC!!!

I enjoyed the ceremony. Plenty of surprises and a very interesting teaching. I was captivated!

Next week, we will start preparing my raising. It will take place sometime in 2017.

I am glad to see that the Lodge is taking care of you and resisting the urge to get you through your degrees quickly. If your Mentor has not suggested it yet I would recommend getting yourself a copy of the Degree specific books for the Degrees that you have been through so far:

First Degree: http://letchworthshop.co.uk/ritual-books/521-emulation-ritual-book.html
Second Degree: http://letchworthshop.co.uk/ritual-books/522-emulation-ritual.html

These books enable you to re-cap the actual Ceremony that you went through in the Lodge and also the Lectures (that you won’t have heard) that teach you about the symbolism that you came across and what it means.
