Worshipful Master Frederick A. Marotti
From The East
With my most warm and fraternal greetings Brothers;
As Masons, we have suffered through many trying times in our history: wars, famine, poverty, persecution and more. But we as Freemasons have always persevered. Thomas Paine once wrote, "These are the times that try men's souls," and this indeed will be a trying time. Please do not lose your faith in the Grand Architect of the Universe, for he is our savior; in Him you should put your trust, and if you persevere you shall be saved. Eat right, exercise, get plenty of rest, drink lots of fluid, take vitamin C and D. Don't ever lose sight of who you are or what you can be. I am writing today to tell you that our officers and I are here for you. If you are a Brother in need or who needs good council, please reach out to me or any of the officers. We will try to come to your aid in so far as our ability to do so permits. I hope we are back at Lodge soon chalking this up to another of life's tests and experiences. We will be offering a virtual fellowship every Thursday starting at 7 PM so check our private Facebook site for the connection link. Having a positive attitude now will help you to cope. Be safe, be kind, be happy.
Worshipful Brother Frederick A. Marotti
Please be aware that due to the Coronavirus Covid-19 issue, Hiram Lodge #1 has suspended all meetings and activities until further notice. Also be aware that the New Haven Masonic Lodge is closed. We are not taking reservation for any buiding use at this time and have had to cancel any standing reservations. It is regretable that these measures have had to be taken, but we are committed to the health and safety of our members, their families and our community. We'll do our best to reopen as soon as possible. We are using the New Haven Public Schools and City Public Safety officials to measure our actions. It is our hope to reopen when schools start back up. We also hope everyone will be safe and kind out there. Look out for your neighbors and be sure to put into practice all advice from our State and Local officials. Best Wishes to all.
"Zoom" Virtual Meetings are happening every Thursday during our quarentine period.
All Brothers are invited to join in and just let us know how you're doing. Visiting members from other lodges are always welcome. We've had Brothers call in from all over the country and the World. No official business, just discussions about life, family and fraternal interests. (please see the calendar for dates, times and links.)
