I am pleased to announce a number of Senior appointments to the 2024-25 Grand Lodge Team.

I am now pleased to advise that VWBro. Frank Lombardo will be Grand Director of Ceremonies, VWBro. Bruce Carey will be Deputy Grand Director of Ceremonies, and RWBro. Lindsay Aldersea will be Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies.

Congratulations to these and other Brethren who will assume important positions for Freemasonry in the Grand Lodge Team. 

I personally and on behalf of the Craft thank those who have filled these positions in recent years and for their significant contribution to the Craft. We have a healthy succession of talented Brethren and continue the tradition of promoting new Brethren for these important roles.

MWBro. Anthony Bucca
Grand Master
