St. John's Night and Past Master Dinner

Join us for a celebration of the Past Masters of Doric Lodge, and for a Feast in Celebration of St. John the Baptist. Family and friends are welcome.

The first Grand Lodge was formed on June 24, the feast day of John the Baptist in 1717. This may arise from a very old tradition, since the Baptist appears to have been regarded as the patron of stonemasons in continental Europe during the Middle Ages. The guild of masons and carpenters attached to Cologne Cathedral was known as the Fraternity of St. John the Baptist. The earliest surviving record of Grand Lodge of Ireland installing a Grand Master is dated to June 24, 1725.
