Put simply, it is an informal meeting of Freemasons where skills are rehearsed and practiced. The Lodge of Instruction enables teachings and information to be imparted in a relaxed and informal manner as opposed to the formal workings of the lodge.
In particular it is a chance for junior Freemasons to ask questions, practice skills and to explore the workings of their lodge and craft in greater depth.
It also allows an opportunity for those more experienced to impart their wealth of knowledge of the craft and their life experiences to the younger brethren.
Regular attendance is highly recommended for all Apprentices, Companions and Master Masons alike and, in particular, for those Brethren who wish to progress in the Craft. All members from other lodges are also welcome to come to the Lodge of Instruction.
This presents brethren from other lodges with an opportunity to tap the rich vein of information and experience that exists in the wider masonic community.
The LOI is held every Monday evening (except for Bank Holidays and regular Lodge meetings) at Freemasons Hall.
Italia Lodge also organise Social Events when spouses, families and friends can join the Brethren in our festivities. These are the Ladies Night and traditional gala dinner to thank our spouses for their support and the White Table which is the last meeting before the summer break to celebrate the end of the masonic year.
