Talk: Maesgwyn Lodge of Installed Masters – The True Masonic Church

This evening I was invited to give a talk for the Maesgwyn Lodge of Installed Masters.

It was very odd because I am the secretary of the Lodge, and the Worshipful Master called me us (As the Secretary) to get me (the Secretary) to invite myself (the Speaker) to come give a talk for the Lodge.

I decided to give the talk :-

The True Masonic Church

This is now the third of the IM Lodges in North Wales I have given a talk at.

St Edmund's Church

​St Edmund’s Church in Rochdale, is regarded as one of the finest but least known gems of ecclesiastical architecture in the country. Commissioned by the industrialist and banker Albert Hudson Royds, its interior is packed with Masonic symbolism.

The specific spark that initiated St Edmund’s might have come when on August 10, 1869, the Provincial Grand Lodge convened in the Chapter House of Worcester Cathedral to march in procession to the Cathedral where the new Masonic window that had been built in the north transept was unveiled. On this occasion, Albert Royds (who was already a member of the Supreme Council, 33rd Degree) proclaimed: “I ask you to accept this gift from the brethren of our ancient Craft and sometimes, when you look upon its mellowed light, may you be induced to say, ‘O, wonderful Masons!’”.
