LJMU Freshers` Fair 27th September 2017

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!!

The Lodge at Freshers Fairs 2017

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.

Coming to study at Liverpool this year???

The University Lodge of Liverpool welcomes all of the new students or staff coming to Liverpool University; Liverpool John Moores; Hope or Edge Hill in 2017 and offers the chance to join a fraternal society which has existed for 300 years.  It is something a bit different and well-regarded for its charitable work as well as its support for the students who are on their first degrees or taking higher degree qualifications or new members of the professional staff who are settling in the area.

Freemasonry in our Lodge is open to men over the age of 18yrs who have a belief in a Supreme Being (Freemasonry does not limit itself to any faith so long as the person can say they believe in a Supreme Being)  but there is a masonic organisation that is for women too – and we would be delighted to put anyone interested in touch with them if they wish.

 

The Masonic season ends for the summer break

The University Lodge of Liverpool holds its last meeting before we take our summer break on 10th April.  The Lodge fully recognises the exam timetable of our Universities and that our student members are fully committed to revision and cramming (LOL) for the end of their year studies.    We will meet again in October when hopefully we will have had the opportunity to introduce Freemasonry to all interested Freshers and that some will want to join us.     While Freemasonry in this Lodge is directed to men, there are Freemasons Lodges equally directed towards female students and we would be delighted to try and make the necessary introductions to that organisation wherever possible.

Liverpool claim the DKW Cup

On Saturday 28th January the DKW Cup was brought to Liverpool by a contingent who visited The University Lodge of Chester , the holders at that time.   The DKW Cup is named after David Kenneth Williamson who was the former President of the Universities` Scheme of the United Grand Lodge of England and is handed on when Brethren from one University Lodge visit another.    The photograph shows several of the Liverpool Brethren who went to Chester and the Cup being handed on to one of our youngest members by an Assistant Provincial Grand Master from the Cheshire Province and the Worshipful Master from The University Lodge of Chester .

At our meeting on Monday 13th March eight visiting Brethren from the Aurora Lodge No.4047 in Leeds claimed the DKW Cup to take it over the Pennines and continue its` journey promoting harmony and fellowship amongst University Scheme Lodges across England and Wales.   Pictured above the Worshipful Master of the University Lodge of Liverpool (r) hands the Cup across to the Master of Aurora Lodge at the end of dinner.

The Cup makes its way around the table – seen here – with a Brother drinking from it while other Brethren stand ready to receive it in turn and once having drunk turn outwards to guard the drinkers` back while he is engaged with the Cup.

An unusual fact about us

We are one of the few Lodges that acknowledge our members Higher Educational qualifications in the Summons for each meeting.

MSc, BA Hons, LLB MPhil etc.

But not all of our members have studied at a University, and you do not need to have a degree if you wish to join however an alternative professional qualification would give you something in common with our present membership.  We welcome applications from new candidates.  Please use the contact page
