Grand Master Message

anchorHail Friends,

What a honor for me to serve the Grand Lodge of the Great State of Mississippi for 2017 and to represent you for a short time. I will strive to give 100% of my abilities for this purpose.

My motto for this year is “Anchored in Masonry” and I hope you will join me in this endeavor.
Mr. Webster describes an anchor as something that serves to hold an object firmly. I believe that it is time for Mississippi Masons to hold firmly to our teachings and customs.

I asked that you pray for me as I will for each of you. Pray for yourself each day that you will become a better person. Each of us are the best Mason that someone knows. Will that person want to be like you or will they shy away from masonry.

As we prepare for our 200th year next year may we all give positive publicity of Masonry and let the world know that Masonry is alive and well in Mississippi.

Thanks for all the encouragements, thought and prayers that you have supported me with. I look forward to seeing as many of you as I can in the coming year.

Until then I remain
Anchored in Masonry

MM and WM of the Year Nominations

rhodese_GM_2016Brethren, MWGM Eddie Rhodes has extended the deadline for nominations for WM and Mason of the year until February 16, 2017.

Brethren, these two awards are among the highest honors that Mississippi Masonry can award. Look to your Brothers. Among them are many good men, Masons who have labored long and hard in the quarries asking nothing in return.

Think of these good men that we emulate and consider which of them might be considered for these honors.

Let us give our Grand Master the assistance he requests, and help him honor our deserving Brothers. Send your nominations to the Grand Secretary as soon as possible.

Take due notice thereof and govern yourselves accordingly.
