A message from the Worshipful Master

    My dear Brethren and Friends!  It looks like at the time of this writing, Winter is still trying to linger a bit longer than we would like, but I hope that Spring has come, and we are getting to enjoy a bit more warmth than before!

    March was an amazing month for our Lodge!  We started off the month by welcoming two new members to our Lodge: Brothers Mo Azizi and Kenneth Schick, who have been an integral and active part of our Lodge family since they joined the Craft!  Shortly thereafter, we passed another Brother to the Degree of Fellowcraft, and worked towards helping him complete his Masonic journey!

    By the end of March, we welcomed two new Brothers and initiated them into the Mysteries of Freemasonry, and we look forward to their progress in the Craft!    

    Excellent jobs by the degree teams that have been handling all our incoming members and Brothers!  Ritual excellence is the backbone of the Initiatic experience:  Once you know what to say and how to say it, you can focus more on what it means, and that becomes an impression on the minds of these new seekers!

    April will be another busy month with the Official Visit of the Grand Master to our District, a Fraternal Visit to a Lodge in the District of Columbia please reach out to the Lodge to purchase tickets, Book Club events, and another session of the Virginia Masonic University.

    The Lodge will be discussing some resolutions in April, so please come out if you have any questions or discussion points that you want to raise.

May the Great Architect of the Universe keep you, surround you with Blessings, and bring you warmer days and brighter skies.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Joe Martinez
Worshipful Master
