The program requires each member to have his passport stamped when he has witnessed a degree in any one of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction Valleys. A member who has witnessed all 29 degrees of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction should have his Valley Secretary certify the completion of the passport. The secretary then submits the certified passport to Supreme Council for recognition and certificate.
The changes that have been made do not affect how the program works, simply the recognition items. The certificate has been updated to be more in-line with other Supreme Council certificates and Supreme Council is now issuing a “Gold” passport to the member as recognition that he has completed the cycle at least once. Therefore, if you see a gold passport, congratulate the Brother and continue to stamp his new passport book.
For those members who have already completed a passportand would like to have a new certificate and new gold passport issued, simply present your present book to your Valley Secretary and he will forward your passport to Supreme Council for action. Once verified, a new passport and certificate will be issued.
