Exciting News for Lodge – We are a Saturday Daytime Meeting!

Always keen to ensure that we can accommodate the brethren members of our lodge, the University of Birmingham Lodge 5628 has moved its meeting dates to the 3rd Saturday of the month. Meetings will now be held on the third Saturdays in November, February, April and September.
As a University Scheme lodge we now have many members who are spread far and wide out of term time, we also have long established members who likewise travel distances to attend lodge. The move to Saturdays will make attendance a far less stressful journey to and from lodge. We hope you find this most convenient.

Provincial Honours to our Brethren

It is with great pleasure to report that two members of the Lodge received their first Provincial appointments at the Annual Meeting of Provincial Grand Lodge on the 18th May 2013. The meeting was held at the Provincial Temple, Stirling Road. A full house of Warwickshire Masons as well many honoured guests from adjacent provinces as well as further afield made the event most memorable.

The presentation of the Officers for the ensuring year were appointed and invested and the Past Ranks were conferred and confirmed by the Provincial Grand Master, RWBro David F Macey. WBro Humberto R Campos was appointed Acting Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies (Prov.A.G.D.C.) and WBro Robert L Ashford was appointed Past Provincial Grand Standard Bearer (P.Prov.G.St.B.). This was followed by address form the RW Provincial Grand Master. A hearty congratulation to both these brothers and a big thank you to them from the Lodge for all the support and dedication they’ve given to the Lodge over many years.

University Candidates Initiated

The University Scheme is proving to be a great success.

At our last two Lodge meetings we have, at each, held a double initiation introducing four graduates and undergraduates into Freemasonry.

The University Scheme allows candidates to approach the University of Birmingham Lodge no matter where they are studying and if their own University has a lodge it is quite probable that they will be passed within that Lodge should they so desire. Thus an even greater bond is developed between all Masons and lodges.
