Masters Message October 2016

Greetings Brothers,

As we move from summer to fall we anticipate our return to  the  quarries  of  masonry  and  the  resumption  of  degree  work.  The  EA  Degree  will  begin  on  our  regular  communication  night,  Wednesday, October 19th, and a special on the following Saturday, October  22th to finish. We have several candidates, who have petitioned our lodge to receive their degrees with us. I encourage you to come out to see the Officers of your Lodge present this degree. It will also give you an opportunity to meet the next group of candidates, who will be joining our craft.

The September communication was special with R∴W∴Richard Lynch and his presentation of, “A Haunted Mill, A Ghost and A Mason”. It never ceases to amaze me at the richness of masonic history that surrounds us here in Rhode Island. A visitation of the area will be held by R∴W∴ Richard Lynch later this fall for those brothers wanting to see the places in the presentation.

St. John #1P attended its Annual Worship Service at Hope Congregational Church, 120 Wampanoag Trail in East Providence on  Sunday,  September  25th. The brethren assembled at 9:30 AM and entered the service at 10:00 AM. Pastor Amy Frenze conducted the service and as in the past welcomed all brothers of all faiths.

Remember to check the Grand Lodge web site and our newsletter  for  happenings  and  visitations,  other  events  in  the  district, and events in the jurisdiction.  Please let Brother Secretary or me know of any brothers who should be added to or removed from the sick list..

I look forward to seeing you all in Lodge not just now but throughout the year.
