    Having been initiated July of 2017 I’m scheduled to be passed in just a few short weeks in mid February at a county lodge about an hour away from home.
    The lodge I will be passed in is a beautiful old lodge with a lot of history, it’s truely a privilege to be getting passed there.
    I’m hoping to do my raising there too, probably mid winter with a fire roaring in the lodge room fireplace..

    In my jurisdiction you have to have attended 12 meetings be they at your lodge or while traveling prior to being raised, at this rate my passing will be my 14th however I’m finding a lot of value chatting to brothers about their personal projects, meeting plans or what ever their opinions of the craft are.

    Shall do, my mentor has started talking to me about the royal arch which sounds like an ideal compliment to the blue lodge.

    Long term I’m not sure if I will go into another body but there is no rush ofcause.

    Initially I felt that I would move through blue lodge and on to the Scottish rite. Now, I'm finding myself drawn to multiple areas of blue lodge and think I might focus the next several years there. As you say, there's no rush. Best of luck!

    Not yot fellow Aussie, im being passed on feb 14th in Braidwood lodge of truth.
    Braidwood being a fairly small country lodge rarely get the opportunity to do degree work so we at lodge Capitol will occasionally have them perform degrees for our candidates.

    Our next meeting will mean one year as a mason for me-
    My Masonic passport shows 20 visits and there is talk of Raising me in the not too distant future.
    Amazing how fast these things go.

    District 48 under the Grand lodge of NSW and ACT.

    We do it a bit different here in Australia :)


    That said I belive it’s more a tradition that we do things like that-not a grand lodge rule or anything.
