Honoring a Masonic Past Master
While the exact hierarchy or order of officer positions may vary for different jurisdictions of Freemasonry, most jurisdictions elect lodge officers in progression from lesser roles to more important roles throughout the years. Usually, an officer spends one or two years in each position before he moves on, and is eventually elected as Worshipful Master. Common offices include Tyler, Steward, Deacon, Secretary, Treasurer, Junior Warden and Senior Warden. It is also common for the Master position to be filled by the Senior Warden of the previous year.
The Master is the senior officer of a Masonic lodge. He directs all the business of his lodge, and has considerable powers. He also presides over rituals and ceremonies. A Past Master is a person who has served as the Master of a lodge in the past. Some lower offices are often filled by Past Masters. Masonic jewelers often sell Past Master rings that are perfect for the Past Master in your life.
