April 2019 Stated Communication



Greetings and salutations from the East. It is an honor to be the Worshipful Master of this amazing Lodge. Our previous stated communication was an amazing example of dedication, flexibility, and commitment. As many of you know, our March stated communication was very busy. We started the evening off with a tuxedo fitting which was well received. We were then visited by the Most Worshipful Grand Master and the Grand Lodge officers for our annual Grand Lodge Visitation. I provided a report regarding the progress of St. John’s Lodge No. 11 and the great things we’re doing in 2019. We were not done then. We followed up the Grand Visitation with the performance of the Enter Apprentice Degree. Our degree team did an amazing job in front of the Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons of the District of Columbia, M.W.B. Chrbel Fahed, and other members of the Grand Lodge. I applaud each and every one of you for putting on a great evening for our Grand Lodge and for our newest Brothers. 

The April bulletin marks the end of our first quarter and the end of my first quarter as a Worshipful Master. These past three months have been busy. We had three stated communications, a Fellowcraft brunch, and we have a social event coming up in a couple of weeks. I hope that this first quarter has been as fun and engaging for you as it has been for me. 

I will not be in attendance at the April stated communication. The April stated will be a Past Master’s Night led by W.B. James S. Parkhurst, P.M.. 

Until then, please remember that we have a N.C.A.A. March Madness Watch Party on March 23 from 12:30 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. at the 2 Silos Brewery in Manassas, VA. I look forward to seeing you there. 

Sincerely and Fraternally, 
Sean Parkhurst 
Worshipful Master
