Port Arthur Lodge A.F. & A.M. No. 499 G.R.C.

Meet The Worshipful Master - 2016

Worshipful Brother Patrick R. Bodkin


Patrick Russell Bodkin was born in Port Arthur on February 2, 1981 to Eric and Krystina Bodkin. He is the youngest of three siblings. He attended Shuniah Public School, Bishop Gallagher and Hillcrest High School.  He also attended Sault College of Applied Arts and Technology where he received a diploma in the Automotive Service Technician and Business program.


After attending College, Patrick worked at Wilf's Service Center and Kia Motors and acquired an Automotive Service Technician License with a red seal designation in 2006.


During his work in the trade he was hired by the Lakehead Public School as a Technical supply teacher. Patrick found his true calling as a teacher and attended the University Of Toronto in 2013 and Graduated from the Bachelor of Education program.


Patrick has two beautiful children, Ava Bodkin nine and Anna Bodkin six, who love swimming, dancing and gymnastics.


His interest in Masonry occurred through his friends Neil and Thomas Dark, who sponsored him in 2006 into the Fraternity.


Patrick has enjoyed his Masonic journey this far, and appreciates all the support of its members over the years.


He is looking forward to representing Port Arthur Lodge #499 as Worshipful Master
