Freemasonry in Marple- The Doric Lodge.
« on: March 24, 2009, 03:18:58 PM »
I have read the article in the Marple website about the Doric Lodge and was wondering if anyone has any old history books about the Lodge. I have seen a couple of articles on the net. but nothing about it's actual history over the years.

I am collating information about some local organisations and I would appreciate a copy of any old documents-or the loan of.

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies. The following information is intended to explain Freemasonry as it is practiced under the United Grand Lodge of England, which administers Lodges of Freemasons in England and Wales and in many places overseas.

Very witty response Andrew, I must remember that one-at least it's clean.

Duke, you ask "whats in it for me"

Well, we aim to make good men-better and  a person who expected to gain pecuniary or mercenary advantage by attempting to join, would not be acceptable.

I do beleive that the links shown in this thread will give you an insight into what it's all about

at the Stockport Masonic Guildhall.

Q,
Are Freemasons expected to prefer fellow
Masons at the expense of others in giving
jobs, promotions, contracts and the like?
A
Absolutely not. That would be a misuse of membership
and subject to Masonic discipline. On his entry into
Freemasonry each candidate states unequivocally that he
expects no material gain from his membership. At various
stages during the three ceremonies of his admission and
when he is presented with a certificate from Grand Lodge
that the admission ceremonies have been completed, he
is forcefully reminded that attempts to gain preferment
or material gain for himself or others is a misuse of
membership which will not be tolerated. The Book of
Constitutions, which every candidate receives, contains
strict rules governing abuse of membership which can
result in penalties varying from temporary suspension
