On Saturday the 11th March 2017 at 10.30am The University of Birmingham Lodge, 5628 and The General Lodge of Instruction, 587 met at Severn Street Rooms and conducted a Double Ceremony of Passing.
The University of Birmingham Lodge graciously allowed The General Lodge of Instruction to open and take the principal offices for the ceremony, which was done with feeling and the competence expected of them. The candidates were treated to confident and assured work which was acknowledged by the non-participants.
The Festive Board lunch was timed to perfection and Severn Street enhanced their reputation for providing excellent dining, which was enjoyed by members and visitors alike judging by the level of conversation. New friends were made and interest in the General Lodge of Instruction was refreshed. The Grace before and after the meal was fascinating for those who ‘have the Latin’, and delivered with natural ease by W Bro Kevin Parkes Past Assistant Grand Registrar, Assistant Provincial Grand Master (Staffordshire).
The General Lodge of Instiruction welcomes enquiries from all Masons, including EA’s and FC’s who would like help to practise, or simply want to join with other like-minded brethren in enjoying their ritual.
