 April 2020 Message


Brethren:

I hope all of you and your families are in good health.

There is no way of predicting how long this virus will last. As previously advised by The District Secretary all meetings and social functions in the Toronto East District are cancelled for this Masonic year. Social distancing will be an extremely important part in fighting this unprecedented pandemic. However, it will also be, in my opinion, one of the more difficult things for people to do. Brethren, remember the virus cannot be transmitted over the phone, email and social media so stay in contact with your Brethren. To those Brethren that may need assistance please contact the Master or Secretary of your Lodge as I’m sure there will be someone that can assist you. Both myself and The District Secretary are only a phone call or email away. Some Lodges have already started their own communication processes via Facebook, Skype, email chain and phone calls, please keep up the good work.

This kind of isolation is not easy both mentally and physically, but this too, we will overcome. It may take two or three tries but I’m sure with a little effort if you get the Book of the Work out this will be a good time to refresh an old piece, learn a brand-new piece of work or check the Grand Lodge of Canada Website (College of Freemasonry courses). These are all things that might help assist you with the mental and physical aspects of isolation.

Although the District Charity events for the Masonic Youth Groups had to be cancelled, donations can still be made to the District Secretary or Masonic Foundation of Ontario. On your donation please indicate it is for project #2685. Although, the Awards Dinner is cancelled, please continue to submit your nominations for worthy Brethren. These are awards that can be given out next year by our District Awards Committee, the new DDGM and myself.

Finally, stay in contact and pay attention to those Brethren who may require assistance and please continue to follow the advice of the health authorities and above all keep your distance and be safe.

Fraternally,

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