Wor. Bro.  Gary Christian


 Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Gary received his formal education in both local elementary, secondary, and post secondary institutions.  A graduate of Fort William Collegiate Vocational Institute, Confederation College of Applied Arts and Technology, and Lakehead University, he was afforded accreditation in general arts and sciences, accounting-administration and commerce.

Gary was employed with the Ontario Government for twenty two (22) years and also served with the Canadian armed forces (Navy) for nineteen and half (19-1/2) years.

 In August of 1990 Gary married the love of his life Helen, and together they are raising two lovely daughters, Jade, sixteen (16) years and Montana, fifteen (15) years.

Gary was initiated into Freemasonry on November 11, 2002 and within that period of time he has worked tirelessly in a host of different Masonic endeavours.  He is part of the founding committee on the Masonic Ch.I.P program, traveling extensively throughout Northwestern Ontario implementing the Masonic child identification program.

In his acceptance speech Gary emphasized the continued  growth of the lodge.  One his short term objectives include supporting newly initiated Entered Apprentices on their journey to becoming Master Masons. Thus, regular practice sessions for officers and brethren will be on the agenda for the ensuing year. "
