Greetings from the
Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, R.W. Bro. John McLernon
As the Provincial Grand Master, I welcome you to the official website of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Antrim.
The main purpose of this website is to give both Masons and Non-Masons an insight into our organisation.
The Province of Antrim has 150 Lodges and forms part of the Grand Lodge of Ireland. It stretches from the Greater Belfast area to Portrush and Ballycastle in the north.
Freemasonry requires its members to treat each other, with respect regardless of class, creed, colour or race. It is non-sectarian, non-political and reminds us of the needs of others who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Hence, one of our main aims, is to support, not only Masonic Charities, but many other local charities, such as, the N.I. Hospice, Action Cancer, N.I. Air Ambulance, TLC (Teddies for Loving Care) and many others.
Many people assume that to become a Freemason you have to be invited to join. This is not the case and whilst members may encourage their friends to become freemasons, there are other ways in which you can join. We often use the saying, “to be one, ask one”. If you are interested in receiving more information on becoming a freemason, go to the “Joining Section” of our website and complete the information requested and someone will contact you.
I hope you enjoy your visit to this site and look forward to welcoming you in the future.
Provincial Grand Master of Antrim
