A closed door society opens its doors for a day

A society that normally conducts its activities behind closed doors is all set to organise an Open House. The District Grand Lodge of Bombay, an apex body of Freemasons affiliated to the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), has scheduled an Open House on Sunday, June 5 at Mumbai.

The Open House event will serve as a curtain-raiser to UGLE’s Tercentenary Celebrations in 2017, commemorating 300 years of continual existence of Freemasonry. Those who wish to know about Masonry and its objectives may walk in at Freemason’s Hall, Opposite Sterling Cinema, near CST, anytime between 11 am and 5:30 pm on June 5.

Senior members of the masonic fraternity will offer insights into the “brotherhood,” and shed light on its rituals and rites of passage. They will enumerate on various social aspects Freemasonry is known for worldwide – support to the charity, efforts for inclusion of the differently abled in society, and upliftment of women through education.

According to the organisers, the Open House will also help clear misconceptions about Masonry and convey that it is not a secret society, but at best a society of secrets.

Entry to the Open House is free but registration is desirable at Open House
