The Next Regular Meeting

Wednesday 22 April 2020

has been abandoned

due to the incidence of Coronavirus

Regular Meetings are held at Harrow District Masonic Centre on the third Friday in November (Installation), the first Monday in February, the fourth Wednesday in April and the third Monday in September.

Members of other Lodges are welcome to come along as visitors. There’s no need to wait for an invitation, just e-mail the secretary@ruislipstmartinslodge.com.

We look forward to meeting you.  

Lodge of Instruction is held fortnightly between September to July - see Programme page for latest dates. Meetings are held at Harrow District Masonic Centre.  A cordial invitation is extended to Brethren of all Lodges to attend.

Joining the Lodge  If you are not a Mason and would like details about the Craft in general and this Lodge in particular, we would be very pleased to tell you about the principles and objectives of Freemasonry, about who we are and what we do.

Already a Mason? We also welcome applications from established Freemasons interested in becoming Joining Members of our thriving and energetic lodge.

In either case, just e-mail the secretary@ruislipstmartinslodge.com for information from us, and the chance to tell us about yourself.  We really look forward to hearing from you.  

Surely, it demonstrates the frailty of mankind and is a ‘wake-up call’ to us all.

On this Mothering Sunday, my wife and I, like many of you, would expect to be celebrating this special day with our closest family and loved-ones and yet, because of the need for self-distancing or self-isolation, we are not able to do so.

My son, who is a senior clinical research scientist in the pharmaceutical sector and knows better than some the serious dangers and risks we currently face, has managed to Skype us so that we can see and speak to him, his partner and our three young grandchildren, whilst my daughter, her husband and their two teenage grand-daughters have also managed a WhatsApp communication with my wife, so we are not totally self-isolated.

But some of our Brethren and Companions will feel self-isolation most keenly, and I urge all the members of our Lodges and Chapters to keep in touch and support each other, whether via e-mail, telephone calls or social media, e.g. WhatsApp Chat Groups, but please do not leave this responsibility to your Almoner, who will likely be overwhelmed at this time and will need your help and assistance to enable him to fulfil his duties.

I am sure that, like me, you are already missing the camaraderie and companionship of our Masonic meetings and gatherings and The Pro Grand Master/Pro First Grand Principal, in his recent e-mail sent to all Brethren and Companions, has asked each one of us to make a toast to Absent Brethren at 9.00pm every evening during the four month suspension period to help us stay in touch as a Masonic community.

I shall be doing so this evening and I hope that you will all likewise do so.

Finally, I implore you, your family and loved ones to heed and strictly observe the medical advice and guidance that is being given daily in order to stay safe and well.

May God bless you all.

With kindest fraternal regards.

A Message from the RW Pro Provincial Grand Master and ME Grand Superintendent

Dear Brethren and Companions,

The present situation resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic is the most difficult and challenging time for us all.

Who would have thought that, in the 21st Century when mankind considers itself to be so technologically advanced and in control of our world, a simple cross-contamination between animals and humans occurring some 7,000 miles away in Wuhan, China could cause the global pandemic and world-wide mayhem that we are now experiencing via a highly contagious and potentially lethal airborne virus similar to a cold or flu ?

Pro Provincial Grand Master for and

Grand Superintendent in and over Middlesex
