How often does Osterley Lodge meet?
As Masons we meet four times per year to practise our ritual in the temple, however we also meet lots of other times during any year where our wives and families are all invited to come along and partake in whatever the festivities.
In fact it could be said that we will meet anywhere, anytime at the drop of a hat and we will gather at various functions and events ranging from the fully suited and booted Ladies Night and Black tie occasions to the more low brow Skittles evening, horse racing and curry night or visiting local attractions of interest to our members, most of which usually involve an attraction followed by food and drink.
These are usually sourced and researched by our Lodge events coordinator and members can then decide which they would like to attend
What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Its roots lie in the traditions and ceremonies of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles. Some rituals are still celebrated today.
What are the values of Freemasonry?
Integrity: We say what we mean and we keep our promises.
Kindness: Although our families come first, we believe in playing a key role in our communities and give time and money to charitable ventures.
Honesty: We pride ourselves on openness, about what being a Freemason means for us.
Fairness: We treat everyone as equal – we listen to others, explore any differences and look for common ground.
Tolerance: We respect the opinions of others and behave with understanding towards them.
