“From ancient times no master or fellow could be absent from his lodge, Especially when warned to appear at it, without incurring a severe censure, Unless it appeared, to the master and wardens, that pure necessity hindered him.”

The universal AED sign, developed by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation
Thanks to the generosity of the Brethren there is a Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on hand at the Freemasons Hall.  Brethren and their Ladies are asked to please familiarize themselves with its location and proper usage during their next visit to the hall.  Any Brother with training or experience in using an AED should advise their Lodge Secretary, in case of an Emergency.  While some of our Brethren are already familiar with the proper steps we would like as many Brethren as possible to be aware that it is quite easy to use as it will direct the user using voice prompts once it is turned on.  Please, take the time to view these two attached links in order to familiarize yourselves with the proper method, should its use become necessary.  You could save a life.

Home of the original “PILLAR PROGRAM

Upon completion of the “Pillar Program" each successful participant will be presented with a Certificate and a Pillar Program Pin, both of which have been reviewed and approved for use by the Grand Lodge of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The certificate and the pin's format were chosen with the intention to emphasize the respectability of Freemasonry as an elevated form of social activity stressing Spiritual and Philosophical Values.  Each Certificate is numbered in order of presentation, and bears the Lodges’ Seal as witness to the accomplishments and subsequent contributions to the Craft made by the Brother to whom it has been presented, and by whom it has been signed.
