Fraternal Greetings

Brethren, with humility, but also with great pride, I regard the honour you have bestowed upon me in your selection of me as Grand Master of your Grand Lodge.

Freemasonry, Brethren, has endured, not because of antiquity, it’s influence or it’s social standing but because there have been so many who lived it. The prestige of Freemasonry rests squarely on the shoulders of each of us. We must therefore ensure that we practice the basic principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth at all times and in all places. Freemasonry seeks to improve the community, thus it impresses upon its members the principles of personal righteousness and personal responsibilities, enlightens them as to those things which make for human welfare and inspires them with that feeling of charity or goodwill towards all mankind. We are then moved to translate principle and conviction into action.

To become a Mason, one must stand ready with all sincerity to give whole hearted assent to it’s teachings and principles, obedience to it’s laws and regulation and observance to its ancient landmarks.

In the coming months it is my hope that many of the programs initiated by my predecessors will be enhanced and improved upon, I would encourage the continuance of the support of our highly visible Camp Goodtime project. I am confident that the Masons of New Brunswick will continue their generous support of this project in the future as they have in the past.

Brethren, we, must redouble our efforts to support our fraternity in all its endeavors, so that it may continue long into the future. Brethren you are the fraternity.

I wish all the Lodges in the Grand jurisdiction a healthy, prosperous and rewarding year. I look forward to seeing you in Lodge Brethren.

May the Great Architect assist us in our endeavors.
