Masonry’s plan is to walk with men on the crowded squares of life; to enter the struggle; to make men- which can be done only by natural growth. Masonry’s doors are not open to the world, but its light shines for all humanity. Masonry does not attempt to enforce morality, but only to point out the natural blessings and happiness that arise from obedience to and harmony with Spiritual Laws.
The mission of Freemasonry is to promote a way of life that binds like minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences; by teaching the great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth: and, by the outward expression of these, through its fellowship, its compassion and its concern, to find ways in which to serve God, family, country, neighbours and self.
Brothers and Friends – It gives me great pleasure to serve you and our fraternity as your Worshipful Master. I will occupy the seat that 151 other Masters have sat in over the years. I am truly humbled and appreciative for the honor that has been given to me. I know together we will continue the heritage that our fore brothers established for us.
