Welcome to St Mary's Lodge

Welcome to our Freemasons Lodge Website under the Constitution of the United Grand Lodge of England

Next Meeting on Friday, 7th of June 2019, 6.45pm.  Second Degree Ceremony with a Candidate


It is with great sadness that we inform everyone of the passing of Bro. JOHN RICHARDSON BOLAM, WM of our Lodge in 1991 who retired to the Isle of Arran many years ago. John still kept in close contact with St Mary's Lodge. He was our Durham Benevolent Representative for many years and was honoured with an acting rank in Provincial Grand Lodge as ProvJGD in 1999, a much deserved appointment. John was a gentleman and very much a quiet and private individual who served our Lodge in every Office. We express our condolences to his long time partner Eileen Bainbridge and reflect on happy and good memories of a special individual who will be sadly missed by everyone

St Mary's Lodge is located in The Masonic Centre, Alexandra Road, Gateshead NE8 1RB and is part of the large masonic family of Freemasons Lodges in the former County Durham area of the UK, known as the Provincial Grand Lodge of Durham, being Lodge Number 4864
