Our Lodge; is situated on the Cape Peninsula at No. 6 Phoenix Way, Glen Cairn, just before Simons Town. We meet on the evening of the second Monday of the month for approximately four hours. Our meetings are split into two sections, that of business and then of social interaction.
Our Lodge has a proud history, for well over a century, of charity and goodwill between men. It is a sanctuary from our hectic lives where men may contemplate their own personal conscience in an environment of harmony. It almost sounds as though we are religious but we are most certainly not and have members of many different faiths. In fact a discussion of politics and religion is forbidden.
So what is Freemasonry you may ask?
Besides being an institution that has progressed through very many centuries, the official explanation is ‘A system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols’. Well…. that is just so ambiguous for many of us and a better or modern explanation is a gathering of good like-minded men who are seeking their own personal appreciations.
It could be considered a wonderful system of discipline designed to improve ourselves, each within our own compass of attainment. It has strict protocols that personal interests do not overwhelm the general interests.
Therefore our Lodge recognizes that Freemasonry means very many different things to very many different people which cannot be defined. That is what makes it so beautiful. It is these various enjoyments that sustain us and the institution. This harmony, humility, acceptance, tolerance and empathy for our fellow man produces a journey of discovery in emotional and spiritual development, opportunities to practice a principle way of life and a sense of pride to an order rich in history. This, we deem to be our Lodge and the current Masonic Value Proposition.
We welcome all Masonic visitors and invite those who wish to participate in our order to make an application through our Lodge Secretary.
