 October 2019 Message


I hope this message finds everyone in good health and all geared up for this busy fall month of October.

September was also a busy month with four installations that went very well. September 24th we successfully hosted the Grand Lodge of Instruction at the Whitby Hall, with an attendance of 70 brethren from various Districts. The first District meeting was held on September 28th with 15 members in attendance.

This October we will have six installations and one Official Visit. As an officer of your lodge your first duty is to your lodge, but it does not end there. I want to encourage you to support your Brethren in your District and Masonry in general and one very important way to do that is by visiting. The communication, fellowship and true friendships that visiting provides is a very important part of Masonry. Visiting is of ancient origin with an honorable history, please take advantage of it when your cable allows it.

Official Visit: — Thursday October 17th — Doric Lodge 424 at The Quaker Meeting House 457 Kingston Rd. Ajax - Lodge at 7:30pm, Late Banquet.


§  Tuesday, October 1st — Canada Lodge now back at The Whitby Masonic Hall, Visitors 7:30pm - followed by reception. 

§  Wednesday October 2nd — Brougham Union Lodge, Claremont - Early Banquet at 6:30pm - Lodge Visitors 7:30pm.

§  Monday October 7th — Mimosa Lodge, Aurora - Visitors 7:30pm with Banquet after lodge.

§  Wednesday October 9th — Friendship Lodge, Whitby - Early Banquet 6:00pm - Lodge opens at 7:00pm - Visitors at 7:29pm.

§  Wednesday October 16th — Universe Lodge, (new home) York Temple - Early Banquet 6:30pm - Visitors 7:30pm.

§  Monday October 21st — Caledonia Lodge, York Temple - Early Banquet 6:30pm - Visitors 7:30pm.


We also have two receptions this month, first one for R.W. Bro. Graeme Boyce Grand Senior Warden and V.W. Bro. Robert Jewell Assistant Grand Organist at the Beaches Loge, York Temple on Thursday October 3rd Lodge at 7:30pm followed by reception.

The second one for R.W. Bro Peter Sialtsis Member of the Board of General Purpose at Birch Cliff Lodge, East Toronto Masonic Hall on Friday October 25th Lodge at 7:30pm followed by reception.

 Please note there are only three Mechanics of the work classes left in this fall session, October 5th, 19th and 26th.  So far this year they have had a larger number of brethren from outside our district than from within. Come out and show your support, you will not only learn the proper mechanics of the work but also have an opportunity to meet new brethren.

 Brethren, I look forward to greeting you all personally.

 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
