 January 2020 Message


I want to wish you a Happy New Year and I hope your holiday season was filled joy and blessings.

The new year is a time many of us make resolutions, which are done with the best of intentions. Change can only be accomplished if we commit ourselves to that change. We have all made an obligation to become better men, but in order to do so we must practice the fundamental principles of Freemasonry; Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. How often do we say if the world practiced what Masonry teaches, it would be a better place. My Brethren, may I add that today Freemasonry needs each and everyone of us to reaffirm our obligations. Masonry must be a way of life, there is no place or time for peeks and quarrels, remember the oaths you took upon the alter, remember the five points of fellowship. “Masonry is a way of life” and it can be a good life, if you follow its teachings. Before you make a decision regarding anything to do with Freemasonry, ask yourselves, is this a good decision for my Lodge, for Masonry and all my Brethren? If it is, then you have made the right decision. If your ego is involved in your decision, then you have made the wrong choice.

I would like to thank all those Brethren that attended the Remembrance Day Services in the Toronto East District, all three locations where well attended. Thank you for remembering those who have sacrificed so much.

On behalf of your Brethren in our district I ask for your support in the upcoming official visits. I am aware that family and work are your priorities in life, but that is only common sense. If your cable tow allows it, your support at the upcoming officials visits will be much appreciated by myself and your Brethren.

The following are the Official Visits for January:
January 8 – The Imperial East Gate
January 9 – Coronati
January 21 – Riverdale John Ross Robertson

Also starting back up January 25, 2020 is the Mechanics of the Work Classes at East Toronto Temple. please check The District Trestle Board for further dates. As an officer in your Lodge you have made a commitment and these classes are essential to help you in that commitment. In March and May 2020 there are education evenings scheduled. Further announcements will be made by the committee responsible.

The Ladies Gala is scheduled for June 13, 2020 at the Ajax Convention Centre. The cost has been lowered to $85 per ticket with better entertainment and no long speeches. Again, further announcements will be made by the committee responsible for this event.

 I look forward to your continued commitment and support in 2020.

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


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