The adage “good things come to those who wait” rang particularly true for Mossley Lodge, a bastion of fraternal values and camaraderie within the Masonic community. On a vibrant Tuesday evening, the 6th of February, the lodge met with anticipation and excitement. The occasion? The initiation of not one but two eager candidates, Adam and Will, both of whom are poised to become exemplary members of the Lodge.

W Bro Brookes, with the steadfast support of the lodge officers and the mentorship of Uncle George, orchestrated a ceremony that was nothing short of remarkable. The night was a testament to the spirit of fraternity that Mossley Lodge is known for, and the seamless initiation left an indelible mark on all present.

The warmth of the lodge was further amplified by the overwhelming support from the brethren of neighbouring lodges. Members from local lodges and even those from lodges across the border in Cheshire — affectionately termed “the dark side” — came together in a splendid show of solidarity. Their presence contributed to an electric atmosphere, one that epitomised the unity and brotherhood of Freemasonry.

For those unable to partake in this memorable evening, worry not, for the journey of our newly inducted Masons is just beginning. Keep a watchful eye on Mossley Lodge’s forthcoming meetings. The next chapter promises to be just as exciting as Adam and Will continue their Masonic journey, progressing through the degrees. They will be taking their next regular steps, advancing to Fellowcraft and later rising to the esteemed rank of Master Masons within the year.

Join us as we celebrate their progression and the continued growth of our lodge. Mossley Lodge, ever a beacon of friendliness and Masonic excellence, looks forward to welcoming all to witness the evolution of our newest brethren on their auspicious Masonic voyage.
