The appointment of Tyler to the Lodge is of extreme importance especially if the progression to the Office of Master is practiced. Just as the Tyler's sword is used as a symbol to guard against the approach of cowans and eavesdroppers, so it should admonish us to set a guard over our thoughts, words and actions, thereby preventing the approach of every unworthy thought, word, or deed and preserving consciences void of offense toward God and toward man.

 

TO PERFORM, HE SHOULD BE PREPARED TO:

  • Be prompt and early at all lodge meetings and see that all lodge paraphernalia is in place for all stated and special meetings.

  • See that all paraphernalia is kept clean and in good repair.

  • Assist the Senior Deacon and the Lodge Welcoming Committee to accommodate all visiting Brethren and act as host of the Lodge.

  • Inform the Master of a visiting Brother to be examined for admission.

  • See that all Brethren in the Lodge Room are properly clothed – apron on outside of clothing.

  • Register all regular and visiting Brethren and see that they are duly vouched for or examined.

  • See that all paraphernalia is put away at the close of lodge.
