    I need join

    I have already outlined your options in the previous posts, there is no shortcut to membership and it is up to you to reach out to the Freemasons where you are and ask if they will let you join. Asking Freemasons half way around the world won't help you There is no email address we have...

    I need join

    So it's time for you to write a lovely letter introducing yourself, where you live, what you do for a job and explaining why you would like to join a Lodge, if they're interested they'll get back to you.

    I need join

    You need to do some learning about what Freemasonry is, there is no responsible person, you wish to join a private group not some kind of company. If there are no public telephone numbers it will be because all numbers are personal numbers of the members and it means that you will have to write...

    I need join

    It is possible to join in Jordan BUT it is pretty difficult as: a) it is ostensibly against the Law to become a Freemason and b) there are only about 3 "regular" Lodges of Freemasons in the entire country, they are located in Amman and all fall under the Grand Lodge of Scotland (in Scotland) as...

    Introduction

    Hello from England.

    Urgent enquiry. Please help.

    Just to add: as a non-member of that Lodge and obviously not knowing any of the members illustrates that you have no "urgent" need to talk to them.

    Urgent enquiry. Please help.

    Copied from the other topic you asked in: So on the assumption that you have already checked in your local telephone directory it appears there are no publicly available contact details for this Lodge. This will be because this is a Lodge that operates independently and deals direct with HQ in...

    Plantagenet Lodge No. 1454 - Contact Details, please

    So on the assumption that you have already checked in your local telephone directory it appears there are no publicly available contact details for this Lodge. This will be because this is a Lodge that operates independently and deals direct with HQ in London as there is no District Grand Lodge...

    New to the site...not to being a Mason

    Hello from across the sea.
  11. Mike Martin

    Questions to all Lodges and members.

    I'd have to agree with the previous comments. Personally I'd say that if a Lodge cannot fill the Officers' posts it has come to the end of the line and the remaining members should be winding it up and looking for a new Lodge to join preferably en masse.

    After 29 years of being Mason in-name-only, I am publicly dropping the bomb

    Quite a bit for "socials" and "Lodges of Instruction/Practice" but more importantly we also visit other Lodges and many English Freemasons are members of multiple Lodges sometimes in various Provinces.

    some one asked

    You can tell that's from Lancashire because they choose to ignore the old Lodge at York which declared itself a Grand Lodge in 1725 and was knocking about until the early 1790 as well as the Grand Lodge of All England South of the River Trent of William Preston fame in 1779. The thing to be...

    some one asked

    The difficulty is that if you feel the Antients need to be mentioned what about the Grand Lodge of all England at York To be frank if you actually want to be this pedantic, it is an impossible elevator pitch because you're all missing out too much information. There had actually been six grand...

    some one asked

    Take out the name of the Pub and you're there: "The Premier Grand Lodge, which became the United Grand Lodge of England, was founded in London in 1717".

    How to join

    There are plenty of Freemasons in Uganda, use google to search for district Grand Lodge of East Africa

    some one asked

    I'm not sure why you're making that response to me, I'm very aware of the history and development of my Grand Lodge but more importantly I did not make reference to the UGLE anywhere in my reply??? Did you just not actually read my reply?

    some one asked

    The Grand Lodge of London and Westminster was constituted (not chartered) or formed in 1717 and charters and warrants for Lodges didn't exist back then, they developed as the Grand Lodge system itself developed and spread around the world. What you might be thinking about is "recognition" of...

    Addressing fellow Masons in an email

    As mentioned it depends on the purpose of the email and who you are writing as.

    Hello my brothers the free builders

    As far as can be seen the Regular Grand Lodge of the Kingdom of Morocco does not have a website so you will need to find a postal address that you can send a letter to in order to introduce yourself.
