For Beaconsfield and Marlow based Brethren….and all those willing to travel to these Centres over the summer.
Following another successful year in 2018, with members of Summer LoI performing an excellent 1stdegree ceremony in front of our PGM, we have set the dates for 2019.
Your Summer LoI was set up, and has been successfully running for over 10 years, for those of you that may have just joined Freemasonry or are now advancing through the progressive offices.
Not only does Summer LoI provide you with a platform to learn new ritual or floor work it also gives you the opportunity to make new friends, have a laugh and extend your Masonic network.
Your Summer LOI is here for you, if there is something you would like to practice, or need help with, let us know and we will endeavour to help with anything from ritual to presentation skills.
Please do not feel that you need to know the ritual before joining us as most, if not all, start with open book and slowly and steadily learn as the summer season progresses. You can also sit on the side line and watch what goes on so that the ceremonies become clearer.
On the nights of LoI there are breaks for discussion to clarify any points that are unclear or to discuss differences in workings such as Taylors, Universal, etc.
The summer season starts with a Curry Night at Chutneys in High Wycombe, as usual, where Brethren joining the summer sessions enjoy each other's fellowship in a relaxed social atmosphere.
Finally, the summer season will close with a Curry Night at theBasmati in Beaconsfield, where once again the Brethren who supported each other over the summer can enjoy each other’s company while reminiscing about what they have learned over summer.
At the end of the summer the SLoI have an opportunity to demonstrate its new found skills and preform a first degree ceremony in an open Lodge.
To be consistent, the classes conform to Emulation Working and include the following:
- Open the Lodge in the relevant Degree(s).
- Learn and perfect the 1stdegree
- If the number of attendees allow learn the two remaining degrees
- Close the Lodge in the relevant Degree(s).
