Freemasons on lower Eyre Peninsula along with their partners will come together to hold a service of worship.  A service of this kind has not been held, in the district, for a great number of years. Masons regularly attend services of their own faith be it Christianity, Jewish, Muslin, Hindu, Buddhist.  Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It is an organisation of instruction  and a system of moral and spiritual philosophy that strives to make good men better.

The origins of Freemasonry are in the great building era of the Middle Ages, and hence it is based on religious truths as recorded in the Sacred Writings. Therefore one of the essential qualifications for membership is a belief in a Supreme Being.

The service is being held Sunday 23rd October at 11:00 a.m. in the St. Matthew’s  Anglican Church at Poonindie, this is the historical mission church. Reason for choosing this particular building is that it offers a link between the past ancient traditional stone masons, on which Freemasonry is based, and the present day speculative Freemasons.

The Service will be led by the Grand Chaplin of Antient Free & Accepted Masons of S.A. and N.T. Reverend Brenton Daulby OAM and Parish Priest the Reverend Peter Linn.

All present and past Freemasons and their family and friends as well as interested persons are invited to attend this service and afterwards join in a luncheon at the Tasman Hotel Port Lincoln.  For further information contact 0427 313 112.
