Annual Provincial Church Service

 

The Annual Provincial Church Service will be held at St Thomas’s Church, 2A Church Lane, St Dogmaels, Cardigan SA43 3EH on Sunday 12th May 2024, commencing at 3:00 pm.

 

This is one of the few events at which the Provincial Grand Master asks for our support so let us aim for an excellent turnout.

 

There is limited parking outside the church and a council car park is nearby, however it is suggested that you park at the Masonic Hall, Napier Street, Cardigan, SA43 1EH as there will be transport provided to take you to and from the Church starting at 1.00pm.

 

Full Masonic Craft or Chapter Dress Regalia is to be worn. Robing facilities are limited in the Church so for those not wearing “Tails” it is recommended that you carry your regalia in a carrier bag, which can be folded up and kept with you.

 

Ruling Masters, Wardens, and Principals are reminded that they should wear their Lodge, Chapter Office Collar. Please note that this is a joint Craft and Chapter service, and all brethren are asked to wear their Craft, Chapter Dress Regalia.

 

Refreshments will be provided afterwards from 4.30pm at the Masonic Hall, Napier Street, Cardigan, SA43 1EH.

How the Foundation helps communities

In addition to the support provided to Freemasons and their families, the Masonic Charitable Foundation looks beyond Freemasonry, making significant financial grants to charities that help people to live happy, fulfilled lives and to participate actively in society.

The charities supported make a significant and lasting difference to people in need.  We aim to benefit as many people as possible and further those causes about which Freemasons and their families have told us they are most passionate.
