Jersey Freemasons celebrate 100 years of Lodge Saint Helier

Jersey Freemasons in a banquet hall to celebrate 100 years of Lodge Saint Helier


Lodge Saint Helier, No. 4449, celebrated its Centenary in 2022. It was decided to elect an experienced member of the Lodge to undertake the Centenary Mastership. Colin Goss selected and was installed in the chair in November 2022.

Colin decided that the year should be a special one, so for every meeting of that year, they would celebrate the Centenary and enjoy a special meal. All the other Lodges in Jersey were invited to attend one or more meetings during the year. As a result, every session was extremely well attended. Every meeting undertook a ceremony, with an experienced team supporting Colin.

In February, a Centenary Ladies Festival was held. A local hotel excelled in the facilities provided, which included entertainment by a local band and a member of the Lodge acting as toast master. It was estimated that the event needed 100 guests to break even, but thanks to the support from members of other Lodges, 156 people dined and danced the night away. This meant that £2,000 was transferred to the Lodge’s charity account.

The year ended in November 2023, when Colin installed his successor in a faultless ceremony in the presence of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Jersey, providing a great example for others to follow. To top the year off, the Centenary Master celebrated his 81st birthday.
