The members of University Lodge Liverpool wish all of our students the best in their exams and for those who are taking “A” levels and wish to become students – our best wishes too. Making an advancement in knowledge is always worthwhile and that is one of the main aims of Freemasonry. We wish you all well.
We are very grateful to Sam and the staff at the Liverpool Medical Institution who have always been most accommodating and helpful to us over many years – and to Debbie and her team for the delicious catering and friendly service. Accommodating a Masonic function is not always plain sailing and we do appreciate their efforts.
Some of the Members of the Lodge took the opportunity to be photographed with Sir David Wootton, Assistant Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England at the meeting of the Lodge on 12th March 2018. The Worshipful Master of the Lodge is centre with Sir David centre-left.
Following the meeting – at which one of our Members gained the degree of Master Mason – the assembled company retired to a delightful meal that rounded off the evening in fine style with our customary display of fellowship and the usual collection for charity.
The Worshipful Master, his Wardens and all the members wish everyone the seasons` greetings and all the best for a peaceful, prosperous and happy New Year. We especially send our greetings to the students of all the Universities in our area – Liverpool; LJMU; Hope and Edge Hill who are sitting exams and submitting their work towards their Graduation in 2018.
The University Lodge of Liverpool last night installed its new Master for the next year – according to a Masonic tradition that has lasted virtually unchanged for 300 years. It brings us a step closer to our own Centenary in 2021 but a bit closer in time, we will be initiating at least three new members next month – again according to a long-standing tradition. The Members all wished Paul a very happy year in Office and we were delighted to have been joined by visiting Brethren from across the north-west as well as the Right Worshipful Master and other Scottish Masons who had travelled from Mother Kilwinning Lodge in the Grand Lodge of Scotland to bring their own fraternal greetings.
The University Lodge of Liverpool has elected Paul Williams who is the present Senior Warden as its next Master to be installed by the present Master, his son Ashley, on 13th November 2017. This is a very unusual event as fathers often install their sons!
The Members wish Paul a very happy year in office and will be there in force to see him take the Chair.
The Lodge again joined with the Organisation of Women Freemasons to bring a joint stand to the Freshers` Fair in Liverpool. A large number of the students took the opportunity of our presence to ask questions and find out more about our charitable work and the support and fellowship we give to students who are possibly living away from home for the first time. We also took the opportunity to dispel many misconceptions about Freemasonry and what it stands for and just by being there have shown we are not a “Secret Society” and certainly not bent on world domination!!
University Lodge Liverpool were joined by the Order of Women Freemasons at the Liverpool University Welcome Fair at the Guild of Students today – 21st September.
If you expressed your interest then we will be in touch shortly and we hope that everyone there enjoyed a very interesting day – we certainly did – and we will see LJMU at their Freshers Fair next week…….
The University Lodge of Liverpool will be at the Welcome Fair for Liverpool University students at The Liverpool Guild of Students, 160 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool on Thursday 21st September.
We are also going to be at the Liverpool John Moores University Freshers Fair on Kings Dock on Wednesday 27th September.
On both occasions we would be delighted to welcome any enquiries about our charitable work, the fellowship we can offer and give some indication what Freemasonry is all about. We will be joined at both venues by the Organisation of Women Freemasons. Their Order is the oldest and largest Masonic organisation for women in this country and works on the lines of regular male Freemasonry.
Spending time at University is one of the most rewarding occasions in life but when you are away from home, as many students are, then Freemasonry can help to provide a way to make new friendships that support you through not only your time here but hopefully for a lifetime.
