On Monday, 2/27/2023, our newest brother received the first degree in Masonry and is now our newest Entered Apprentice! On behalf of our Baylor Masonic lodge #1235, we extend to our brother a warm and heartfelt welcome. You have taken the first step on a journey that has been traveled by countless brothers before you. We are honored that you have chosen to join us on this path of enlightenment, fellowship, and service.
As an Entered Apprentice, you have been initiated into the mysteries of our ancient fraternity. You have taken your first steps into a brotherhood that values morality, charity, and brotherly love. We hope that your journey will be enriching, fulfilling, and meaningful. In the coming weeks and months, you will learn more about our history, traditions, and rituals. You will also have the opportunity to meet and form friendships with other brothers who share your values and aspirations. We encourage you to ask questions, seek guidance, and engage in the activities of our lodge.
As you progress through the degrees of Masonry, you will gain knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. You will also be called upon to serve our lodge, our community, and our world. We believe that Masonry has the power to make good men better, and we look forward to witnessing your growth and development as a Mason.
Once again, welcome to our lodge. We are honored to have you as a brother, and we look forward to sharing this journey with you.
