Lodge of Instruction
Meal served at 12:00
Topics to be Covered: Masonic Protocol in Lodge, Handling Candidate Petitions and Investigations, Proper Balloting Procedures in a Lodge, Degree Considerations, Constitutional Considerations for Lodges, Masonic Educational Resources, Ritual Excellence and a Historical Program.
All Officers of the Constituent Lodges in each District make a special effort to attend the Lodge of Instruction in their District (however, attendance by Lodge Officers at any District LOI will be recorded). Attention is directed to the GLC Art IV.8.2, Page GLC 16 (GLNH Government pdf file page 36) which states (emphasis added): “It shall be the duty of the Worshipful Master, Senior Warden, Junior Warden, Treasurer and Secretary of the Lodges in a District, whenever the Grand Master shall call a Lodge of Instruction to be held for said District, to attend the same.”
I am requesting that the Worshipful Master make an earnest effort to see that all Brothers who were Raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason after October 1, 2021 are aware of the meeting. They should be told that it is a Communication that they are expected to attend, they will be recognized and that the program will be one of Masonic information and education that should be of interest to them.
Dress for the event will be tuxedo and gloves with full regalia for all Grand Lodge Officers. Constituent Lodge Officers should wear their Aprons, Collars and Jewels.
All MASTER MASONS are welcome and are urged to attend. A current Dues Card is required for admission to the Lodges of Instruction.
