Failt Erriu, Welcome from the Provincial Grand Master.
Freemasonry world-wide has a proud and colourful history dating back many centuries.
Here, in our lovely island home, Freemasonry has reflected our diverse cultural heritage and status as a semi-autonomous Crown Dependency. Situated centrally in the Irish Sea, almost equidistant from the four ‘Home Nations’ yet not part of the United Kingdom, our Provincial Grand Lodge has operated since 1886 under the auspices of the United Grand Lodge of England, prior to which we had lodges warranted variously by the Scottish and Irish Constitutions.
Our 19 Craft Lodges and six Royal Arch Chapters continue to attract members from all aspects of Manx life: the professions being represented, retail and manufacturing industries; the clergy and civil service, alongside men from the construction trades. We have bricklayers, carpenters and plumbers who maintain links with operative stone-masons, the ancient forebears of Freemasonry.
I am privileged to be the 13th Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master following a distinguished succession which started with Sir John Senhouse Goldie-Taubman, Speaker of the House of Keys. They include Lieutenant Governors, several Deemsters (the Isle of Man’s High Court Judges) and an Archdeacon. They are a humbling yet inspiring challenge for this mere Chartered Surveyor but I can claim an association with operative masonry!
Conscious that we are in and of our community, which has evolved and changed dramatically over recent years, we are actively cementing our established relationships with all sectors of the island, particularly those in which we have a common interest: contributing to the well-being of individuals and wider society in which we live.
Should your interest be in gaining further knowledge of Freemasonry prior to seeking membership or merely to have more information about us, our history, principles and activities, kindly use the links for insights to one of the world’s oldest fraternal organisations.
For visiting Freemasons wishing to attend one of our Lodges or the many other Masonic orders active on the Isle of Man, the appropriate contacts are listed. You are assured of a warm Manx welcome in the best traditions of true fellowship.
