About Mount Garibaldi Lodge

The first official meeting of Mount Garibaldi Lodge was held January 10th 1940, with Rt.Wor.Bro.Belbeck at the helm in the East, with 3 petitions for initiation received, and a motion passed that all Lodge meetings be closed with “Peace, Harmony and Brotherly Love prevailing”, which is still practiced to this vary day.  That’s the first official meeting, because there was an almost 20 year history in the beginnings of our lodge. A complete history of our Lodge can be downloaded here.

 

Mount Garibaldi Lodge hosts a few annual events that are open to the public. Rabbi Burns Night and Mount Garibaldi Night. While Rabbi Burns Night remains very similar year to year with bagpipers and Haggis, Garibaldi Night changes from the brethren of the Lodge releasing the inner thespian with a Masonic play, to rockin’ it out with guitars and karaoke!

What is Freemasonry?

A Beautiful System Of Morality, Veiled In Allegory, Illustrated By Symbols.

A Beautiful System Of Morality

Reminds us of God’s system, or pattern, which He established for us to follow each day of our lives. That system is God’s Moral Law. His Law is segmented into ten primary instructions that we know as The Ten Commandments.

Veiled in Allegory

Reminds us that the Hidden Mysteries of Freemasonry can only be found and understood when we search our rituals, dictionaries and Holy Bibles for greater depth and understanding in those things deemed secretive in Masonry.

Illustrated By Symbols

Verifies the fact that Masonry is hidden and that it is secretive. Like the symbols that we display openly, our signs, words, grips, characters, etc., each carry a definite surface meaning. Yet, it is below that surface that we find the Spiritual, Material, Physical and intellectual allegories.

An Introduction To

Freemasonry

Expressing a desire to join the fraternity is the first step to becoming a freemason.

What attracts a man to Freemasonry? Every man comes of his own free will and accord, with his own individual needs and interests. One man may join so that he can associate with other men who believe that only by improving themselves can they hope to improve the world. Another man may join because he is looking for a focus for his charitable inclinations. And yet another may be attracted by a strong sense of history and tradition. Many join simply because they knew a friend or relative who was a freemason and they admired that man’s way of living his life. All who join and become active discover a bond of brotherly affection and a community of mutual support; a practical extension of their own religious and social beliefs.

FAQ

Can I become a

Freemason?

 

A little bit about what it takes to join our Craft.

Membership, in North America, is restricted to men over the age of 21 who are prepared to profess a belief in God. The expression in some rituals is “freeborn, of mature age and under the tongue of good report”. Some rituals include references to physical wholeness or fitness but few if any jurisdictions enforce this exclusion in their Constitutions. Some jurisdictions also have a language or literacy requirement. Of a candidate’s beliefs, only three questions are allowed: Do you believe in the existence of a Supreme Being? Do you believe that the Supreme Being will punish vice and reward virtue? Do you believe that Supreme Being has revealed His will to man? Of these three, only the first must be answered in the affirmative, and in many jurisdictions it is the only one asked.
