Apollo Chapter No. 7886

A number of Royal Arch Companions, headed by E.Companion E.J. Georgiou, Considered that another Chapter could be formed to fill the resultant void in Royal Arch Masonry in the Western  part of the Island, a view
supported by the Apollo and Agapinor Lodges. Brethren  eligible to join the Royal Arch and Companions
residing in the Limassol/Paphos areas had expressed interest but objected to travelling to the capital, Nicosia, some 150  kilometres distant.

Supreme Grand Chapter, on a recommendation from the District Grand Master, agreed that a Petition for a
second Royal Arch Chapter could be submitted. Subsequently, on 19 November  1994, the Apollo Chapter No.7886 was Consecrated at Episkopi Garrison within the British Western Sovereign Base Area by 
E.Comp. G. Purser, PGSN, Grand Director of Ceremonies, assisted by other members of Supreme Grand
Chapter. There  were 30 Founder Members. E. Comp. D.L. Amon P.Prov.G.Stwd (Suffolk) was installed as
the first 1st Principal, E.Comp. E.J. Georgiou  as 2nd Principal and E. Comp.C.W. Jennings as 3rd Principal.

In Greek mythology Apollo was a child of Zeus, the King of all the Gods. Every morning Apollo, who was the Sun God, rose at dawn to drive his dazzling chariot, the sun, across the sky in order that the world may be light and warm. Apollo was also the patron of  music and poetry. It seemed appropriate that the Apollo Chapter should
follow its  namesake and communicate (Masonic) light and warmth (happiness). Music and poetry are
illustrated in the Chapter dining room where there hangs an original oil painting,  completed by one of
the Founders, Comp.George .E. Lawrence, depicting Apollo  playing his lyre.
