Welcome to Prosperity Lodge
“With hearty good wishes”
I would like to welcome you to The Prosperity Lodge No 2607 EC. The lodge is presided over by the Grand Master, HRH the Duke of Kent from the United Grand Lodge of England in London. We are situated within the District Grand Lodge of South Africa North, under the direction of the District Grand Master, RWBrother Professor Guy Charlesworth.

Who are we?
The Prosperity Lodge number 2607 on the Register of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) and forming a part of the District Grand Lodge of South Africa North, is one of the oldest Freemason Lodges in Johannesburg. It saw the light of day when it was formed in 1896. Its founders came from even older lodges in Johannesburg. The UGLE takes its origin from the formation of a Grand Lodge in 1717 in London, though the roots of Freemasonry extend far further back than that.
Prosperity Lodge meets twice a month (except January). The first Monday for Lodge of Instruction, and on the second Wednesday for our regular meeting. Our annual installation meeting is in November, when we also host the District’s annual Remembrance Day Service. Throughout the year we have several social functions. At these events, family and friends are welcome to join and enjoy the company and hospitality of the lodge.
2 December – Rehearsal
11 December – Initiation and Christmas Supper

You asked “What does Freemasonry expect of me, once admitted?”
Love and kindness in the home; honesty and fairness in business or occupation; in social contacts; help for the weak and less fortunate; forgiveness towards the penitent; love towards one another, and above all, reverence for the Supreme Being.
Crystalised these principles represent TRUTH, HONOUR, VIRTUE and are the basic principles embodied in the ten commandments, forming the very foundation on which we ALL should mould our everyday behaviour through life.
Freemasonry is not contrary to the principles of a man of upright heart and mind, and has in it nothing inconsistent with his civil, moral or religious duties.
