On behalf of the brethren of The Belfast Masonic Lodge 651, I extend a warm, fraternal welcome to all visitors to our website, whether a Mason or not.
I hope you will find this site interesting and informative, whether you are interested in Freemasony generally, or wish to join our Lodge as a member of the Irish Constitution or from another Masonic Constitution.
Our regular meetings are on the 3rd Monday of every month, except June, July, and August, and our usual starting time is 6.51pm.
Inaugurated on 19th January 2009, this dynamic young Lodge, under the Irish Constitution, takes its name from Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland and the Belfast Lodge No 257 when it merged with ‘Finaghy Masonic Lodge No 651′. We sit in the heart of Belfast, in Freemasons’ Hall, Arthur Square.
Both Lodges have had a distinguished history and details of these can be found on this website.
One of our aims is to maintain and enhance the excellent social life which has developed at Freemasons’ Hall by organising events at which both Masons and non-Masons are welcome. A ‘Ladies Night’ will be an annual event where we can raise money for our ‘Lodge Widows’ and other non Masonic charities as well as enjoying the company of Family and friends.
A further aim, is to include an element of Masonic education (not research) into each of our meetings thus contributing to a general advancement of Masonic knowledge.
We have drawn our membership from far and wide and, if you wish to join us as either a member or a guest, you will be made very welcome.”
Sincere and Fraternal Greetings
W.Bro John McGowan
