M. Ex. Comp. Patrick Davis
Grand First Principal, 2019-20 & 2020-21
I have been happily married to Karen since 1987. We first met in the cast of Shakespeare's Richard III. We have two grown children: Brianne and Jakob. Karen is a Medical Dosimetrist at the Saskatoon Cancer Centre. Brianne is completing an M.A. in Art History while studying in the Netherlands. Jakob has just completed studies in Library and Information Technology in Calgary.
I was born in Moose Jaw and grew up in Swift Current. I obtained three degrees from the U of S: B.A., B.Ed., M.A. (Early Renaissance Poetry). I have taught primarily senior English to high school students for the past 30 years.
My Masonic journey began in 1998 when I was Initiated, Passed, and Raised in Mystic Tie Lodge #213 in Saskatoon. I was DDGM of District 10 for the Grand Lodge of Saskatchewan 2007-08. I was Exalted as a Companion in Harlesden Chapter #33 in 2008. Other bodies that I belong to include: Cryptic Rite Masons, Preceptory, Knight Templar Priests, Order of the High Priesthood, Red Cross of Constantine, Royal Order of Scotland, Order of the Secret Monitor, York Rite College, Allied Masonic Degrees, and WaWa Temple Shrine. I am also a member of the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association.
Throughout this Masonic journey I have been fortunate to know many excellent mentors and friends. I look forward to expanding this circle.
