“... to lead the devotional exercises of the lodge....”
As Chaplain you represent spiritual light. Your duties, though important, are not extensive, and contribute to the dignity of our ceremonies. You should cultivate a good delivery, speaking up clearly, and giving expression to our prayers. Care should be taken that all prayer is non-denominational
You may, on occasion, be very helpful to the lodge if you are familiar with the funeral service, although it is not necessary for you to commit it all to memory. In many lodges the Chaplain’s duty includes the opening and closing of the V.o..S.L.
Being one of the officers of the lodge, your attendance at all communications is important.
