Masonic Education Moment

"I would say there are three steps in Masonry. The first step is the ritual; the second step would be the fellowship to be taken and enjoyed; the third step would be Masonic information for enlightenment or education."
– William K. Bailey


Duties of the Masonic Lodge's Senior Warden

The Senior Warden sits in the West and represents the column of strength which is representative of Jachin, the right-hand pillar which stood at door to King Solomon's Temple.

 

Senior Warden's Emblem

Jewel of Office: His jewel of office is a Level, a symbol of the equality which exists among the Craft while at labor in the Lodge.

The term Warden is derived from the Middle English word "Wardein" and from the Anglo-French word, circa the 13th Century, "Gardein", meaning guard or guardian.

The definition of the word Warden has many different meanings in today's world, however, its basic meaning is one having care of or being in charge of something with supervisory duties or with the enforcement of specified laws or regulations.

In Masonic terminology, he is the second Officer within the Masonic Blue Lodge. He presides over the Craft during the hours of labor.

The Senior Warden's primary duty is to assist the Worshipful Master in opening and closing the Lodge. In the absence of the Worshipful Master, the Senior Warden presides over the Lodge.

Senior Warden's Duties:

  1. Assist the Worshipful Master in the performance of his duties.

  2. To discharge all those duties which ancient usage has assigned to his position.

  3. During the absence of the Master, succeed to and be in charge with all the powers of the Master.

 

From The Secretaries Desk 

The Closing of A Year 

By Brother Eric L. Kolb

This a short and sweet "bug in your ear" thought.
 
Don't treat the Lodge like school days.
Many brothers just don't show up to the lodge until September and then complain when the setup for the year has happened without them.
You want a voice you need to be here.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the stated meeting.
