· few people can live the genuine principles of empathy
· few people are blessed by knowing someone who can live up to these basic principles
· genuine charity is not just about giving or raising money
· the most valuable thing anyone can give is their time, that time given is lost from their lives forever
· and if they gave it to you, with no excuse of being too busy in their personal life, it was willingly and sincerely donated
· above all, that valuable 'donation' of personal time will only be appreciated by those that receive and appreciate it
· all so cleverly represented by the 24 inch gauge
· be a genuine Freemason and donate just a few minutes of your time.

Provincial Grand Lodge of the Isle of Man

Dear Brethren

It was with a heavy heart this evening, after listening to the Chief Minister’s briefing and following consultation with my three Deputies, Roger Southern, Howard Connell and Mike Kelly and in amity with Ed Mullan as Inspector General for Rose Croix, that I took the inevitable decision to impose a temporary local suspension on Masonic meetings on the Isle of Man until 27 January 2021. Whilst the Isle of Man Government restrictions do not take effect until 00.01 on Thursday I would encourage an immediate implementation.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Tynwald, the Council of Ministers and all other parts of the Isle of Man Government and Local Authorities who got us through the first wave of the Covid epidemic crisis and who are once again leading our national response to its resurgence.

The United Grand lodge of England and the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons have been advised of the Isle of Man suspension and I have received from their respective Grand Secretaries messages of support and good wishes for the difficult times that may be ahead.

Although, for now, we are unable to meet in our Lodges and Chapters in person I would encourage us all to use whatever means at our disposal to stay in touch with each other during what I hope will be an effective “circuit-breaker” lockdown. However I also think it’s likely that our release from the lockdown will be phased over some time and so we will need to adapt and evolve our Masonic activities as the situation becomes clearer.

We have distant memories of the lockdown at the beginning of last year; the impact that it had on our Brethren and families will never be forgotten. We faced our own personal tragedies – I lost a good friend to Covid but I also spent time with more fortunate people who were suffering from the virus but subsequently made a full recovery. In the Royal Ark Mariner ceremony we are reminded of Noah’s journey of hope after he had built up a refuge, proof against the storms and anxieties of the outside world. Paraphrasing the ritual, despite the ravages around us we now have an opportunity to help each other, in the face of this worldwide threat, and together we can strive with diligence in the hope that we will be granted safe passage over the turbulent waters of this life.

“The greater reward awaits him whose work is for his fellows rather than himself.”

We have watched as our neighbouring nations have battled the disease and faced local lockdowns whilst we were able to continue to enjoy life pretty much as normal, with a full programme of Masonic activities. Indeed some Lodges were able to arrange emergency meetings to take advantage of the temporary lull that, in our heart of hearts, we knew could not last. Christmas was a very special time for those of us who could spend time with our loved ones, and our Masonic Carol Service on 19 December gave us the opportunity to celebrate together.

What a difference 17 days has made.

We do not know what the future holds – this latest strain of Covid seems to be an even more formidable adversary than its predecessor which in itself caused so much suffering. The demographic of our membership is such that we have a higher than average proportion of our members who are particularly susceptible to the virus and we have an obligation to look after each other. Whilst many of our Brethren will be shielding again, we are fortunate to have a pool of younger, less susceptible Brethren who are willing to help in a practical sense (in accordance with the Government directions) in fetching and carrying shopping or running other errands such as collecting medication, we also have a myriad of tradesmen who can effect emergency repairs if needed.

But there is a role for all of us. Shielding Brethren will also have qualities that we can use to help others from the safety of their own homes – a friendly ear to listen to those who are in need of someone to chat to. The time to pick up the phone and cheer someone up. The compassion to realise when something’s not quite right.

Recently I have witnessed some absolutely first class Initiation ceremonies, the most recent of which was last night. I hope that it isn’t long before I once again hear those lovely words delivered in a packed Lodge room: "to your neighbour, by acting with him on the square, by rendering him every kind office which justice or mercy may require, by relieving his necessities and soothing his afflictions, and by doing to him as in similar cases you, would wish he would do to you.” In the meantime I hope there will be myriad practical examples of our good men doing great deeds. Freemasonry isn’t just about meetings, and a Lodge isn’t just about buildings. Where were you first prepared to be made a mason? Stay safe Brethren, and be kind:

If you can help, offer!
If you need help, ask!

“The highest is he who performs his part best, not he who fills the most exalted position.” I am sure that all Lodges and Chapters will be taking immediate steps to ensure that our Brethren are looked after, and at a Provincial level, Howard Hilton has agreed to co-ordinate any offers from Brethren who are willing to help out, or from Brethren who have any requests for assistance.

Together we can make the difference.

I hope that as Freemasons we will emerge from this stronger and we will be proud of how we respond to this challenge. I am praying for those who are afflicted by the virus, their families and friends who face an anxious wait to see if they have become infected, and for those keyworkers in our health and social care sector and all in our community who quietly and without fuss will go the extra mile to provide us with so much that we usually take for granted.

With kind regards

Martin Blackburn, OStJ

Hiram Abif was a qualified tradesman , who gave his life protecting the secret word and the trade , so how is it that half the people in local lodgers are unqualified chancers at their professions , surely this is directly against the whole ethos of Freemasonry .

A MESSAGE FROM THE PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER

Dear Brethren

Well, what a day that was!

I am still on an emotional “high” after the Ceremonies of my Installation as Grand Superintendent and Provincial Grand Master for this fine and fiercely proud Province of the Isle of Man at Peel on Friday, I hope that I can become the figurehead that you deserve. The weather was spectacularly sunny and in the breaks between rehearsals and meetings it was lovely to be able to stroll along the Promenade seeing our Brethren enjoying ice creams or simply sitting on the benches and chatting amongst themselves and the passers-by who wondered why so many men were dressed up like Head Waiters or Undertakers.

Friday’s ceremonies were the culmination of a couple of weeks of intense preparations by a huge number of people - we achieved in 22 days what would normally take 6 months of meticulous planning with detailed involvement from the ceremonial team at United Grand Lodge - but we pulled it off entirely “in house” and that is a tribute to the character and resilience of the small but highly focussed team who worked together with such enthusiasm that there was no way the day wasn’t going to be a success - but it was also a tribute to the culture and “can do” attitude created by my predecessors, as well as the essence of the Manx independence that has got us to where we are. We gained immensely from the planning that VW Bro Roger Southern and E Comp Bill Ashton (as respectively Deputy Provincial Grand Master in charge and Deputy Grand Superintendent in charge) and their Executives had put in to planning the Annual Provincial Meetings and which were somewhat “hijacked” by my Installations.

So many people were involved in the ceremonies, and the associated events, that it would be wrong to single out anyone for a special mention as I will simply run out of space. You know who you are and you know how many late nights and early mornings that you devoted to your duties, and in helping others to achieve the outcome we had all hoped for. To those of you who were unable to be present, you missed a great spectacle, and for those who were able to be there and to be part of the spirit of goodwill and Fraternal cooperation that overwhelmed the participants, I thank you for making my day, and the day for all the others who were appointed and promoted, such a memorable and special occasion.

We don’t know what challenges will face the Province in the years ahead but I am sure that if we can approach them with the same pragmatic and dedicated approach as we have approached our Freemasonry in particular and our community lives in general in the last few months, we will continue to grow this Province, and our respective Lodges and Chapters will go from strength to strength.

I look forward to playing my part, and I will be relying on you more than ever to do the same. But I want to carry on enjoying the very essence of why I became a Freemason - the friendship of my companions. I didn’t join with the aim of becoming Provincial Grand Master and Grand Superintendent, and, perhaps selfishly, I’m not going to let it get in the way of having fun, although I hope that the two are very much the same thing. But if you see me at your meetings wearing the crimson regalia as an Honorary member of the Henry Callow Lodge (the Provincial Stewards Lodge) then I am off duty and having fun with my friends as one of their Brethren. Likewise at Chapter convocations if I’m not wearing my chain, my principal aim is companionship.

So, as we begin the latest phase of our Province’s Masonic journey can I ask you just one thing, and that is to please be kind to each other: in every sense of the word, charity begins at home.

This is a Masonic lodge, named after King Williams College Castletown, I think the college was named after William 1V.

It’s fantastic you met but Should we be wearing masks to protect each other

King william IV gave his name to the school it is a school lodge

Surely you are breaching the 1m rule in how close you are sat to each other.

2 interesting pictures. I suppose I should have been there but it wasn’t possible.

Very envious! Look forward to when we can do likewise.

“King Williams” lodge. Is that in reference to King William III?

Perhaps they should have had masks on
