What is Lodge Pacific

Lodge Pacific No. 298 is a Craft Lodge. 

Lodge Pacific has a long and exciting history dating back to 1915 when it was first consecrated, we have around 50 members who are aged from 19yrs through to 90yrs. Our members are very active within the community and all share a great passion for community assistance.

Together with our sister lodges Lodge Dawn, Lodge Tweed United and Twin Towns Daylight lodge we have raised over $30,000 for our local hospitals this year alone and we also support many other fundraising initiatives around the Tweed Heads Area.

 

Masonic Lodge Meetings.

Masons usually gather once a month for a daytime or evening meeting lasting two to three hours, Lodge Pasafic meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm. Doors are open from 6:45pm for social purposes. For further details at the next meeting please see our "events"page.

 Like any organisation there’s a business element, with minutes, accounts, and plans for upcoming events to be read and discussed among the members. But a Lodge meeting is also ceremonial, involving a series of formalised and symbolic presentations which use drama to highlight the codes of conduct by which a Freemason strives to live.

 During a Lodge meeting, instruction is also provided to assist in a Mason’s daily life and personal development. This may be on a range of topics, including public speaking, communication skills, leadership skills, or business management.

 The final part of the meeting involves all Lodge members dining together. With Masons coming from all age groups and from all walks of life, the opportunity to sit down and enjoy a meal with each other provides the perfect chance to "catch up", and yet another forum for an exchange of ideas.

 Apart from these regular meetings, most Lodges organise social activities involving the entire family. Theatre parties, sports days, conferences, picnics – the holding of these types of events helps develop closer bonds, not just between Masons, but among their families and the community as well.

 Give us a call and come along to our regular meeting, see why so many men are joining this unique organisation.
