Grand Master’s Message


I would once again like to express my appreciation for the honor of being allowed to serve as Grand Master of Texas in 2018. I will always be thankful, grateful, and humbled for the opportunity you have bestowed upon me to serve the Grand Lodge and the brethren of Texas.

I want to thank the Masons of Texas for all you do to make Freemasonry function. You are all my Brothers, and I thank you for all you do.

Brethren, we belong to the greatest fraternity in the world. There are a lot of great civic organizations that do a lot of great things. In my opinion, the fraternity we belong to is the greatest of all these, and we contribute significantly to our societies. We are “the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God.”

Please remember the membership program from 2018:

A- Attract
R- Retain
R- Reinstate
O- One Aim
W- Way of Life

This fraternity is the fifth best thing that I belong to: 1. God 2. My family 3. My country 4. My place of worship 5. This fraternity. Above all, I want to thank the Supreme Architect of the Universe for all the blessings he has bestowed upon me in my life.

Freemasonry is the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God. Simply put: Freemasonry is a way of life.
