THE ROLE OF HALAS ABBEY LODGE ALMONER
One of the core values of Freemasonry is to look after the health and welfare of poor and distressed Freemasons, their wives, widows and dependants. Individual Lodges, Provinces and the central Masonic charities each has a role to play in facilitating this provision which can only be effectively achieved if contact is maintained with past and present members of the Craft and their dependants.
Many Lodges cannot afford to help their people financially, but we must all make the effort to ensure that we know who our people are, what their problems are, and help them by visiting, providing transport and giving them moral support. It is the role of the Lodge Almoner to co-ordinate this information and plan how he and other Lodge members can assist Brethren and relatives who are in need.
