Our Lodge Meetings

Before the Meeting

Lodge Pacific No. 298 gather once a month for an evening meeting lasting two to three hours. Doors are open from 6:45pm (DST) for social purposes.

We meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month, January to November at 7.30pm (DST).

Visiting Brethren most welcome.

During the Meeting

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.

After the Meeting

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.

Lodge Social Activities

Apart from our regular meetings, we 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.
