Most Excellent Grand High Priest Xavier Young Sr.

Our Most Excellent Grand High Priest Xavier D. Young, Sr. was born and raised in Gary, Indiana.

 

Xavier masonic journey began Pine Bluff, Arkansas. He was Initiated, Passed, and Raised a Master Mason in Electric Light Lodge #45, where he served as Jr. Warden. He was later elected and served as Worshipful Master, serving 3 years. In pursuit of more light in masonry led him to become a member of Royal Arch Masons, Knight Templars, and the level of a 32nd Degree Mason. Dedication to the masonic organization included many levels of achievements to include Eminent Commander L.A. Mixon Commander #2 Knights Templar, High Priest Mt. Moriah Chapter #2 Royal Arch, and Illustrious Master of Marshall Gilkey of the Royal and Select Masters affiliated with the Royal and Select Masters of Mississippi. Later elected and served two years as Grand Captain of the Host, for Grand Chapter of Holy Royal Arch Mason, serve three years as elected Grand Scribe. Presently, serve as Most Excellent Grand High Priest Holy Royal Arch Mason Jurisdiction of Arkansas.  I would be truly remorse not to mention that he is also a very proud member of KYCH.

As my term of office begins, I acknowledge with gratitude the outstanding work done by my predecessor PGHP Joseph Pierce who took me under his wing for my Royal Arch journey. The relationship with WM Richard Richardson of Haygood #407 who took me under his wing in the blue house as well as the Craft, heads of houses and our Grand Master Cleveland K. Wilson.

He has done a great deal of excellent work and have a substantial list of specific achievements. This work must continue as our highest development priority. It creates the positive environment in Craft Lodges in which we can invite our brethren to take that next step, if and when they are able to do so.
