How do I join?
Your first step is to get in touch.
Bury Masonic Hall is based in Bury Town Centre and therefore interested parties should therefore consider their own location and whether a nearer lodge would be more convenient.
Where do we meet?
The Lodge of St John 191 meets at Bury Masonic Hall, Parsons Lane, Bury, BL0 0LY.
We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month from January to April and from September to December.
What happens at a Lodge meeting?
Lodge meetings are typically held in two parts. The first involves more administrative procedures, such as proposing and balloting for new members and receiving news about charitable fundraising. The second part focuses on ceremonies, which might relate to areas such as the admittance of new members or the installation of the Master of the Lodge and his officers – a process made up of three degrees, or stages, each one marked by a special ceremony.
True to the sense of friendship and togetherness among Freemasons, meetings are also social events, providing an occasion for members to dine together. Outside of the Lodge, activities include community fundraising and volunteering activities, as well as a varied programme of events where spouses, partners and families are welcome.
Membership into The Lodge of St John 191 is open to any man over the age of 21.
