Gloucestershire Freemasons in the City for Grand Lodge Quarterly Communications

What is ‘Quarterly Communications’?

This extract is from the book of constitutions (the rule book), published online at UGLE website.

Regular Meetings
11. Four Grand Lodges shall be holden for Quarterly
Communication each year, namely, on the second Wednesday in the
months of March, June, September and December. These meetings
shall be holden in London, but the Grand Master may order that
one of these meetings shall be holden in such other place as he
shall determine.

These meetings are held by Grand Lodge for the purpose of transacting and communicating the business of Freemasonry. The masters (past and present) and wardens of all private lodges are members of Grand Lodge and entitled to attend.

A visit to Grand Lodge is a great day out for Freemasons. The meeting held on 13th March was very well attended, among the 1600 on the day there was a large number of Gloucestershire Freemasons. The pictures attached to this article are just a small representation of the day. A Royal Trio among the lodges – Royal York, Royal Lebanon, Royal Lodge of Faith and Friendship –  as well as representations from Vigilantia, St Lawrence, Gloucestershire Round Table Lodge, Foundation Lodge and many more.

Grand Lodge is held at Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden. When the Grand Temple is not in use it is open to the public. Freemason or not, this is an exceptional piece of London architecture with a stunningly impressive interior. If you are in London then why not head over to Covent Garden, step inside and take yourself for a self guided audio tour of the building.

Thanks to Olly Seymour of Royal York Lodge in Stroud for the photographs.
