Master’s Message – December 2015

Posted by Brian Cayer on November 28, 2015


As I write this month’s message it is a cold and rainy night …in other words a typical late November night. And almost as reliable as November weather is Lafayette Lodge’s long standing tradition of kicking off the holiday season by having the Cumberland Chorus performing an assortment of holiday songs for us. This year, our Junior Steward’s son Jonathan Petit will be in the choir which will be great to see and hear!

The officers and I continue to work hard at learning the ritual and the floor work pertaining to the Entered Apprentice degree which will be received by three candidates on Thursday, December 10, 2015. I would encourage each of you to try to attend. I’m sure you all recall your first impression of Freemasonry after you completed your degree and if you were fortunate enough to receive a warm reception by the several brothers on the sidelines then I would expect your first impression was a very positive one.

Relief is a term that is often used in Freemasonry and during this holiday season I would ask each of you to truly consider whether you would be able to contribute at a higher level to the relief of the less fortunate. Charitable giving is obviously a very personal decision but, like most things, it is easy to get in the habit of doing the same thing this year as you did last year even if you are able to do more now than before.

Finally I want to continue to invite those of you who have not been to meeting or a function lately to please come by. I know it might be hard for you because you aren’t as close to the active brothers as you once were but I guarantee that you will be received warmly if you are able to attend.

WM Ted Hague
