50 Years of Masonic Twinning with France & Germany

On 25th November a delegation of 4 Brethren from St Paul’s Lodge No 43 flew off to Lyon to a weekend of social activities and a Lodge meeting to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the twinning with Loge Lugdunum No 44, Lyon and Loge Zur Einigkeit No 11, Frankfurt.

The tradition started on 22nd October 1966, at the instigation of Loge Lugdunum, who wished for the oldest lodges in Birmingham, Frankfurt and Lyon to twin as the cities had previously twinned as the second cities in each country.

Visits are arranged regularly in all three countries and one has to join in to appreciate the fraternal links between the three lodges. Masonry is definitely universal.

We look forward to our next visit to Frankfurt in February 2017 to celebrate the 275th Anniversary of the founding of Loge Zur Einigkeit No 11.

In comparison Loge Lugdunum No 44 is young, being founded in 1954 and we visited them in 2014 to celebrate their 60th Anniversary.

St Paul’s Lodge had the pleasure of hosting delegations from our twin lodges in 2008 for our 275th Anniversary.

St Paul’s Lodge may be old, but we embrace change and welcome new members as we journey through the 21st century towards our Tercentenary in 2033.

A very special initiation

St Peter's LodgeDear Brethren,

On Wednesday 14th December the brethren & I have the proud task of initiating a very special candidate into the the Lodge, a Mr Alan Foster.

What makes this occasion and the candidate especially memorable is that both of Mr Foster's sons, who are already Freemasons and members of St Peter's Lodge, will have major roles in his initiation. Bro Carl Foster, as Junior Warden will be delivering the Charge & Bro Matt Foster, who is currently a Fellowcraft, has volunteered to act as Junior Deacon for the ceremony and will be presenting the working tools.

This is sure to be a memorable and poignant night, the brethren of St Peter's Lodge would like to extend our warmest welcome to any visitors who would like to attend.
