Masonic Light will be launching in Area 1 on Wednesday 14th March.
This important event will be hosted by St.Peter & Harmony 600, 6.30pm start.
Masonic Light is a series of lectures and presentations which better explain the symbolism, ritual and workings of our ceremonies to promote a deeper understanding of why we do what we do and what it’s really all about. It was developed originally by Bro. Dr. Robert Lomas and has been extremely well received, particularly in Areas 3 and 5.
The lecture about the secrets of the Entered Apprentice Degree will be presented by Tim Brooksbank. This is a really enlightening lecture for everyone, especially Entered Apprentices but also more experienced Masons too.
Further information will be provided to all Area 1 Lodges in the next few weeks. If you’re from an Area 1 lodge please put this in your diary and ensure wherever possible your newer members attend plus as many of your experienced members as would like to be there. Visitors from other areas are of course very welcome too!
Any immediate queries should be made to Tim Brooksbank, email email@example.com or telephone 07789 981463.

WHAT IS MASONIC LIGHT?
MASONIC LIGHT is a program which provides the opportunity for all of our Brethren to gain a better understanding of the rituals and the meaning of Freemasonry. It has been developed as a trial in Area 5 and recently also launched in Area 3.
This first meeting will consist of a presentation, the first in the series, to be given by Bro Dr Robert Lomas and entitled
“The Secrets of the Entered Apprentice Degree, The Long and the Short of it”.
This will be followed by questions and answers and a discussion on any topic that you may wish to ask about.
The evening is open to all Masons from Entered Apprentice upwards.
Dress code is casual, jeans are acceptable as are shirt and tie. This is meant to be a relaxed atmosphere.
The bar will be open and there will be pie and peas afterwards at a nominal price of £5. There will also be a vegetarian option. THE CLOSING DATE FOR FOOD BOOKINGS IS 6th APRIL 2017
