Hi all,
I've been busy for a while so have not had much time to spend browsing.
Just over a month ago I experienced one of the best days in my life and thought I would share it with my brothers across the pond - My son came into freemasonry


Here's a link to the provincial write up.

I bet you are very excited to welcome you own flesh and blood into the brotherhood. Wishing the best to him on his journey

The night was a total blur but the assembled brethren seemed to enjoy it as much as both my son and myself.

Pseudo-free pseudo-masons in strange costumes, he'll get over it. Hopefully.

Mockery from all points of the triangle for you!

Hey JamJar....

That's Awesome.... Congrats.

He Looks Really Young.


I Hope You Guys Become One And Meet On The Level. There's More Glory In It, IMO, When It's A Family Thing...

Awesome news. Did you take an active part in his raising? I keep hoping my son will have that spark of interest and ask me the right question. It just helps to know he is getting the guidance from you he always has, and the guidance from the craft to help him make the best decisions possible.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Lol to all naysayers - how many people can say nowadays that they have a special bond through experience with their son (and it doesn't involve killing)
We will both have that experience for life and I am not just proud of him for his commitment to helping ALL of his fellow human beings but in everything he does.

Err of course he can. He is his own man; intelligent, caring, giving, honest and reliable to name but a few of his good qualities. He isn't perfect by any stretch and he will make mistakes in life like we all do.

For his ceremony I dropped down to JD then went back to the South to deliver charge from father to son.
He won't be raised for a couple of years as he's at university studying for a Physics degree, I will be in the chair when he is raised though - that will be one hell of a night.

I'm guessin' it will be quite a night.


Again, congrats to you both.

I thought by the position of the apron, he was already a master mason. So this was his initiation, cool.
It's great to have enthusiastic young people involved. That is the future of Freemasonry.
We have had a few fathers who raised their sons in the lodge, and when that happens, it's a special night and we get record crowds. It's like the magic is palpable.

Three distinct aprons in English Freemasonry.

Plain
With rosettes

Didn't expect anything less.



Plain With rosettes


Sounds like plain fun to me.
Try to keep the rosettes intact though and better stop when you see blood.



Have a great time and help the youngsters building a better world, if you don't mind.
