By Provincial Grand Master
R.W. Bro. Derek A. Brennan
On July 2nd 2022 The Provincial Grand Lodge of the Metropolitan Area (PGLMA) was constituted by the Grand Master M.W. Bro. Douglas T. Grey.
The PGLMA is the first Provincial Grand Lodge to be constituted on Irish soil for 152 years, and I had the great honour of being installed as the first Provincial Grand Master.
I would like to especially thank the Grand Master and Grand Lodge for their support and assistance - which has been invaluable, I would also like to thank the incoming officers of the PGLMA for their hard work and dedication behind the scenes.
As Provincial Grand Master I would like launch our TEAM initiative:
T - training
E - education
A - assistance with events
M - membership
Ritual Classes 2022/2023
The Provincial Grand Lodge is pleased to announce the return of the Metropolitan Ritual Class.
The class will be held at 7pm on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mondays, October 2022 to February 2023, except public holidays. Classes will be held in Freemasons’ Hall, Molesworth Street. The classes are casual, friendly with a relaxed dress code, and all Masons are welcome to attend.
The Ritual class is an excellent way to try Masonic ritual informally and to practice for upcoming officer roles.
