A word from our Worshipful Master…
Firstly, thank you for electing me to the Oriental Chair for 2017. I will do my best to continue the important work of improving our Lodge and improving ourselves as Masons. With this in mind, I look forward to continuing our traditional Lodge events and introducing a new line of events for 2017. I sincerely welcome your participation in making Union Lodge No. 5 the best that it can be; please continue to follow us on our website and Facebook and take every opportunity to come join us at our events this year.
As we move into the new calendar year, so starts a new Masonic year as well and we turn our attention to the labors at hand.
As I write my first trestle board and reflect on the upcoming year, it’s clear to see that we have great Line Officers, who have been steadily progressing up the chairs and work diligently in transforming themselves from rough to perfect ashlars. I, truly, look forward to working with them and, indeed, every Brother at Union Lodge No. 5 in the coming year.
Finally, let us pause for a moment to remember friends and brothers of the fraternity who in 2016 have passed beyond these earthly bonds to the kind care, love and protection of the Supreme Architect of the Universe. Finding Light, maybe they be mantled in Light. Amen.
In frith and fraternity,
W.M. Ariel Malachi Sirocco
