Brethren:

I do hope that you and your families are doing well in these trying times. Last month, I mentioned how hard both the mental and physical aspects of isolation could be and now we know. I want to thank all our front line works for your dedication and courage. As for the rest us, it is essential that we all continue to follow the Health Department recommendations. This is a battle that we will win.

It has been very rewarding to see the number of Lodges that have turned to online meetings. I have been privileged to take part in some of those meetings and I thank you for that. Our Junior Wardens have also taken advantage of the online process and have now formed their Wardens Group; Aeditimi (which is Latin and pronounced Aye de Teemee), translation is, “Custodians of the Temple”.

On Wednesday May 6, 2020 the Toronto East District Education Committee will hold its first education lecture on Zoom. If you have not registered please note, that a second session is set to go for Toronto East District on Wednesday May 20, 2020. The Committee is also setting up for more sessions in June on “GoToMeeting”, which will be open to other Districts. Advertising will be done on Ontario Freemason Facebook Page and word of mouth with registration through Eventbrite website.
Presenting these lectures will be Bro. John Badowski and VW Bro. Robert Lund.

The last letter from Grand Lodge dated April 27, 2020 advised us that we are still guided by the local and provincial guidelines, which now extend to June 30, 2020. They further stated that those guidelines govern our negotiations with the Royal York Hotel, which are ongoing at this time and contain significant financial penalties that are tied to those guidelines.

Please continue to obey all provincial guidelines and stay safe. Continue to take part in your online meetings. Join us for the online lectures and don’t forget to reach out to your brethren.

May the Great Architect of the Universe continue to protect and guide us in all our endeavours.

Fraternally,

R. W. Bro. Gilbert L. Carreiro,
DDGM, Toronto East Distict. 2019~2020
