The officers of a Masonic Lodge are the Leadership Team which presides over the Brethren and leads them for their term in office.
The Officers of Overland Park Lodge serve one-year terms, but may serve any number of terms in the same position. Typically, the Officers progress through a "Line" with the intent of eventually serving as the Worshipful Master.
The Worshipful Master is the "President" of a Masonic Lodge. He is elected by the membership to serve a one-year term of office. "Worshipful" is an Old English word signifying "worthy of respect". Masonically, it is a title of respect for the office of the presiding officer, the Master, who the Brethren believe possessed of sufficient knowledge, wisdom, and integrity to preside over them in a proper manner. We use the word in its ancient sense, not in its modern sense of denoting awe and humility before a Supreme Being.
The Junior Warden is the "2nd Vice-President" of a Masonic Lodge. He is elected by the membership to serve a one-year term. He is third in line of succession with the primary duties of learning how to run a Masonic Lodge and also organizing all social activities for the Lodge.
The Junior Steward is appointed by the Worshipful Master to serve a one-year term as an assistant to the Junior Warden. His duties also include the preparation of candidates for entry into the Masonic Lodge. This is typically the first position a member will occupy upon wishing to serve in the Lodge Leadership.
The Chaplain is the spiritual and moral guide for a Masonic Lodge. He is appointed by the Worshipful Master to serve a one-year term. His duties include performing benedictions, invocations and informing the Brethren of brothers and their families who are in ill health or in need.
