Information and Resources for Lodge Almoners

The Almoner plays a vital part in the life of every Lodge and Province.
The role has in recent times been recognised and acknowledged by Grand Lodge and Provincial Grand Lodges to be of great importance. With people now living longer, and typically remaining in their own homes, the work of the Almoner will continue to expand.
The Almoners duties include keeping in touch with all Lodge members, especially those who for various reasons are unable to attend Lodge. To provide help and support to those members and their families who are ill, providing additional support via the Masonic Charities if required.
The Jewel worn by the Lodge Almoner is a script purse on which is a heart.
