Inside the Masonic Lodge in Kyle of Lochalsh
Freemasons in Kyle meet regularly, once a month in our Lodge, to conduct business and socialise with some of the 4 million members world-wide. The principles we follow are those of: Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
Brotherly Love is the concern for each Freemason towards his Brother, shown by his compassion, tolerance and respect for his fellows. Relief is cheerfully assisting those less fortunate in society, Freemansons or otherwise. Truth is honesty and integrity is his business and personal life as well as firm standards in decency and morality.
Our meetings are held at the Masonic Lodge, a picture of which you can see above. The proceedings are conducted by The Master who is elected by the membership every two years or every year. Other electoral 'Offices' include Decons, Wardens, Secretary and Treasurer.
The system of advancement in Freemasonry is by 'Degrees'. There are are three Degrees, namely: Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason. Candidates for each degree are examined by his Brothers thoroughly before advancement can be made.
The proceedings follow a traditional and ancient form whereby the members (Brothers) are taught its precepts by a series of ritual dramas, which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons' customs and tools as allegorical guides. The definition of Freemasonry is: 'A peculiar system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated with symbols'.
Freemasonry is not a secret society, it is open to any respectable man, regardless of colour and creed, who has belief in a supreme being such as God, Allah or Jehovah.
