        Grand Masters One Day Class

Jan. 26, 2014

Re: Grand Masters One Day Class,

Worshipful Master, Secretary and Brethren All,

As your Grand Master, I have been requested to allow and perform a One Day Class with-in the Grand
Jurisdiction of Montana. This; as per Jurisprudence Committee’s guidance, is authorized under Part I, Article I
Section 1050,Subsection E of the Code of Statutes for the Grand Lodge A. F. & A. M. of Montana.

The Candidates attending the One Day Class will receive the Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master
Masons Degrees; all inclusive, in a single day. If your candidate or candidates have already been initiated an
Entered Apprentice or passed to the Degree of Fellowcraft and desire to participate in the One Day Class,
will still be required to participate in the entire One Day Class activities.

The Grand Masters One Day Class and all activities surrounding this event will be conducted at Marion Hills
Golf Course, one mile south of Malta.
Event activities are:
• Friday evening March 27, 2015 at 6:00 PM, a reception for all Masons and Candidates attending the Grand
Masters One Day Class. This event is sponsored by the Malta Shrine Club and is free of charge.
• Friday evening March 27, 2015 at 6:00PM, Mentors and Secretaries or Secretary pro tem will meet with
the Grand Master.
• Saturday morning March 28, 2015 at 7:00 AM, Malta Lodge #57 is offering coffee, rolls and donuts. At 8:00
AM sharp the Grand Master’s One Day Class will start.
• Saturday evening March 28, 2015 at 6:00 PM, Malta Lodge #57 will present a short Americanism Program.
Following this program will be a no charge dinner, Hosted and Sponsored by Sacajawea Chapter Order of
Eastern Star. This is their Annual Montana Masonic Home benefit, donations will be accepted.

Lodges wishing to participate in the Grand Masters One Day Class, will find the guidelines and a check list as
an attachment with this letter. These are very exacting guidelines that your Lodge and Candidate or
Candidates must comply with for participation in this event. Failure to comply with any of the guidelines may
cause your Candidate to be ineligible to participate in the Grand Masters One Day Class.

The intent of this Grand Master’s One Day Class is not meant to replace the traditional Degree Work
performed by the Lodges with-in the Grand Jurisdiction of Montana. This event is only a tool to help with
Membership and allowing a potential Candidate or Candidates; with family or work schedules that limit their
ability to participate in joining Masonry via the traditional avenues, an alternative process, thus allowing
them to entering into the Greatest Fraternity in the World.

Sincerely & Fraternally Yours,

Donald S. Cerovski, Grand Master
Grand Lodge A. F. & A. M. of Montana
