Unfortunately, it has been necessary for the Government to introduce another lockdown period and Grand Lodge have therefore suspended all physical masonic meetings during this period. Once again, we will all be under strict restrictions.
For this second period of isolation, it will be more important than ever to stay in touch with each other and to keep our spirits up. Most of us now are familiar with software applications, which make it easier to hold virtual meetings, both business and social. I urge you to make use of this technology to keep in touch, hold regular meetings and enjoy social functions. If you need help with organising a virtual meeting, our hard-working secretariat stand ready to assist and even set up virtual meetings. Please don’t hesitate to contact them.
It is also a time to make doubly sure that Brethren are not in distress or need. If you are aware of such a Brother, please get in touch with our Provincial Almoner, who has a great deal of experience and resources to help.
The magic of the Mark is still there for us all. Prove once again that it is the friendly degree during these troubled times.
I send you and your families all my very best wishes, with the hope that you stay safe and well. May the Great Overseer of the Universe bless you all.
