© 2015 East Lancashire Centurion
East Lancashire Centurion is a craft masonic lodge for serving and retired commissioned military officers from all of the armed services. Founded in 1889, the lodge draws its membership from throughout the country but principally Greater Manchester and the surrounding area.
We are part of the Province of East Lancashire and have the honour of counting several current and former Grand Lodge officers and Provincial Grand Lodge officers amongst our number including the current Provincial Grand Master, WBro Col Sir David Trippier RD, DL, a long standing member and Past Master of this lodge. By virtue of our history we also have a number of traditions unique to the lodge.
The lodge meets four times a year - the first Friday of the month in February, April, October and December (installation) - in Freemasons’ Hall, Bridge Street, Manchester.
We are members of the Circuit of Service Lodges and are always interested to hear from military officers, serving or retired, who are either already brethren or who have an interest in joining the craft. We also actively encourage visitors from other lodges, whether they have a military connection or not. Please contact us for details.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, lodge meetings have been suspended but it is hoped that we can meet again in the not too distant future. In the meantime, all our thoughts are with those who are struggling or who have lost loved ones in this difficult time.
