Tercentenary Certificate Presentations – Photos

To celebrate the Tercentenary Anniversary of UGLE, the Provincial Grand Master presented every new Freemason who was Initiated into the craft during the 300th Anniversary year with a certificate, and invested a number of Freemasons as Past Grand Stewards.

The event was held at Castle Grove Masonic Hall in Leeds, where partners and friends of the recipients were invited to share in the celebration.

The PGM opened Provincial Grand Lodge outside the main temple at Castle Grove. It was then called off and the PGM and his officers entered the main temple. The presentations and Investitures were carried out after which the PGM and his officers retired to an ante room, called on and then closed Provincial Grand Lodge.

All present then enjoyed a buffet in the Ballroom.

Historic Masonic Ceremony Performed in Ripon Cathedral

An historic Masonic ceremony last performed in the “West Riding” more than a century ago was revived this Sunday (September 24) in one of Yorkshire’s oldest churches.

The laying of a commemorative flagstone within Ripon Cathedral – to mark the Tercentenary of the first United Grand Lodge of England and financial support given by Freemasons towards the building’s ongoing restoration work – formed an integral part of the annual Service of Thanksgiving, and is excellently covered by the Harrogate Informer at the link below.

Featuring live video interviews of Revd Canon Paul Greenwell and our Provincial Grand Master, both discussing Freemasonry and the event, this article speaks more of our continued openness in society and our increased willingness to engage with our local communities.
