Welcome to Greater Johnstown Lodge 538 Free & Accepted Masons
A Message from the Worshipful Master
Thank you for the opportunity to serve Greater Johnstown Lodge 538 as Worshipful Master in 2016 and 2017. I didn't consider when I became a Mason in 2011 that in four years I would now be standing in the East. My Masonic journey has prepared me for this day amidst the encouragement of all those that came to this place before me. I attribute much to my fellow brothers in membership and to this time together that we have grown in Masonry and arrived at the point where I can, and you can, say this is my Lodge now. As it is, I am proud to say my Lodge is Greater Johnstown 538. I am proud to be among the membership at our meetings and our events and to spend time with you as friends and brothers of this great fraternity.
Many good and worthy brothers before have given the tools and knowledge to succeed in this journey as Master Masons. I hope to be more skillful at using the Trowel to continue spreading the Cement of Brotherly Love that unites us without contention, save that noble contention as to who can best work and best agree.
Throughout my journey, throughout my life actually, I've realized it takes many hands to do the work of any successful organization. I will need many of you to serve in those areas to continue the tradition of our excellent degree and lodge work. I hope to mentor and encourage new members to find a place in the Lodge where they can contribute and experience Masonry as an asset to their lives and families, in unison with making good men better. There will be a New Members' Night during my year to build a foundation for our new members and enlighten why we came to the Lodge in the first place.
Our Lodge is moving forward because we have diligently worked at it and further we shall continue in harmony and the spirit of brotherly love!
