The Consistory was consecrated by the Grand Summus, Most Distinguished Companion Andrew Sweeney, together with a team from Grand Senatus.
At the conclusion of the Consecration ceremony the first President, Very Distinguished Companion Michael Perchard, was installed by the Deputy Grand Summus, Right Distinguished Companion Ian Currans. The secrets of the Chair were also conferred on the eminent Jersey freemasons, David Rosser and Ken Rondel, who were subsequently invested as the Primus of Lectores and Primus of Ostiarii of the new Consistory.
The Companions then enjoyed an excellent buffet lunch.
On the afternoon of the previous day, a number of Companions from the mainland had joined Distinguished Companions Rosser and Rondel in conferring the first three Grades of the Order on thirteen Brethren from the Channel Islands to enable them to become Founders of the Consistory. These were three superb ceremonies, greatly enjoyed by the candidates and those who took part. All of the Companions then attended the Installation meeting and festive board of Fidèle Amiêtchi Secret Monitor Conclave.
