Living Past Masters

The Past Master, a symbol of wisdom and leadership.

While many people’s first thought is that calling someone “Master” means that you are supposed to “serve” him, in Freemasonry, the opposite is true. The title of “Master” signifies that of a well-versed “teacher,” and not that of the Almighty. The Master of the Lodge serves the Lodge.

As the lodge’s leader, his duties and responsibilities include everything pertaining to his lodge during his elected year: Ability to perform Ritual and Degree Work, Masonic knowledge of Masonry’s science of morals, symbols, and allegory, a delegation of duties to his officers, a delegation of duties to Lodge Committees, Lodge regalia maintenance and upkeep, Trestleboard/communication, scheduling of all functions, all while providing ongoing Masonic education to the brethren, just to name a few.

It is important to honor and remember the Past Masters who have dedicated their time and energy to teaching and serving others, especially within the Masonic community and local community. By following in their footsteps, we can continue their legacy and strive to make a positive impact on those around us, and they also are a valuable source of guidance and mentorship for current and future members of the Masonic community:
