History

In November 2009 Lodge St. Barchan celebrated its 225th Anniversary, with the ceremony of re-dedication being carried out by the Provincial Grand Lodge of Renfrewshire East, headed on this occasion by Bro. David Reid, Provincial Grand Master.

Prior to the Lodge celebrating its Bicentenary in 1984, a Committee of Past Masters, Office Bearers and Brethren of the Lodge, headed by Past Master Dennis McCormack was formed to draw together as much information as possible relating to the history of Lodge St. Barchan. In 1984, this was published as part of the Lodge's Bicentennial celebrations. It was then retyped and re-formatted by Past Master Alan Struthers for publication on the website.

Please use the links on the left to navigate through the history of the Lodge.

If there are any Past Masters, Office Bearers, Brethren or indeed anyone else out there who feel they have material (written, pictorial or simply anecdotal) relating to Lodge St. Barchan which they feel is worthy of inclusion on the site don't hesitate to get in touch.

As noted above, the brethren of Lodge St. Barchan worked hard to bring together the history of the Lodge. Any errors or omissions made in preparing the information for publication on the website are mine not theirs. (E Findlay, 2010)
