Do not be fooled by the age of The Royal Lebanon Lodge, No.493. It may well be the oldest lodge in Gloucester at 225 years old, but we have a fantastic group of young, proactive and dedicated up and coming masons in our membership. Couple this with valued wisdom being passed down from older members, the group is in good stead to lead Royal Lebanon into the future.
The lodge has had several Raising ceremonies of late, that of Brother Elliot Franklin-Jones (Steward) and Brother Daniel Woolf (Almoner and Dining Steward). Most recently, the Passing of Brother Matthew Court was conducted on 5th December. The lodge will a total of 3 new Master Masons going into 2024 with Matthew’s Raising on 6th February 2024, an occasion not to be missed.
“Well done to everyone who had a role to play, it seemed to go smoothly from my perspective. Brother Brown’s Second-Degree Tracing Board was brilliant, and Brother Woolf gave a great Working Tools. The whole lodge delivered a great ritual and festive board from the Worshipful Master to the Stewards .“ Brother Matthew Court – Fellowcraft , Royal Lebanon Lodge No.493.
With two Founder members of the Gloucestershire Young Masons, Prorsum Semper, excellent ritualists and a very warm welcome from an awesome team, the future for Royal Lebanon looks bright. We invite you to come along and share an evening with us.
