Officers of the Craft Lodge

Every lodge is required to have a Worshipful Master, a Senior Warden, a Junior Warden, a Senior Deacon, a Junior Deacon, a Treasurer, a Secretary, and an Inner Guard. Some lodges also have a Tyler.

When the Master’s period of office is completed he is presented with a Past Masters’ Jewel by the members of the Lodge, as a mark of esteem of his dedication and service to the Lodge over the past year.

To be elected the Master of a Lodge is the highest honour the Lodge has in its power to confer on any of its members.
