A message from the Worshipful Master

         As I write this Message from the East, I do so as the presumptive nominee for Worshipful Master this upcoming Masonic Year.  If all went well, I want to thank each and every one of the Brothers at Manasseh Lodge for their continued support and affection.

     I have been deeply involved in as many aspects of Freemasonry as possible, since joining Manasseh Lodge in 2016, and I have to say I could not have picked a finer home to continue my Masonic journey.  The Brothers here have been kind, generous, warm, and fraternal in more ways than I can count.  The Families of Manasseh Lodge have been loving and involved, and I truly believe that Manasseh Lodge is a shining example of our Grand Master’s Theme of “Freemasonry: A Family Affair.”

    I want to thank all the Officers and Past Masters for their support, words of encouragement, and countless hours of assistance; without them, I could not possibly imagine a Manasseh Lodge void of their presence and counsel.  To all my fellow Brothers, thank you for your faith, friendship, and invaluable support!
 

I am humbled and honored to serve Manasseh Lodge this upcoming year, and I will do my best to merit the trust and confidence placed in me and our Officers.  May the Great Architect of the Universe keep you, surround you with Blessings, and never let you forget that you all carry a spark of the Divine within.
 
γενηθητω φως Let There Be Light

Yours in Brotherhood,

Joe Martinez
Worshipful Master
