My journey continues

Posted: October 2, 2016 in Masonic

And so my Masonic journey continues. This time last year, I received my first appointment as an active District officer for the District of South Africa North at the 2015 Annual meeting

This year has been an awesome as a District Officer, having gone to many lodges I normally wouldn’t have gone to, and met extraordinary Brethren from all walks of life. This is one of the aspects I love in Masonry,  all men are equal, regardless of stature outside.

The 2016 Annual Meeting was no less exciting. With the English Constitution Tercentenary coming up in 2017, plans are beginning to unfold preparing for the celebrations worldwide, including here in South Africa. The Annual Meeting was an ideal place to start, by selling  shirts with the improvised emblem.

The Annual Meeing is open for all Masons with the rank of a Master Mason and above, and an opportunity for all to buy new regalia, gloves, lapel pins and many other items…

Before the Craft Annual Meeting, the District Royal Arch Chapter invests the officers for the ensuring year, which attracts many very senior Grand Officers from the respective constitutions recognised by the English Constitution in South Africa, being Scottish, Irish and Grand lodge of South Africa.

And so it came time for the District Grand Lodge to invest the new officers for the year.

I was honoured by the Right Worshipful District Grand Master with a promotion to District Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies

I’m very excited with the new year starting, in my new position as Distr. Ass. ADC, representing the District at Lodge Installations and assisting the District ADC in conducting the installations.

A great year ahead, and congrats to my fellow Brethren with their promotions.
