The Dark Period

Every year Lodges in Germany, and often elsewhere around the world, close down for two months – usually July and August – for a brief Dark Period, when they do not meet officially or work together.

St. John’s Day – 24 June 2019

St John has a very special place in Freemasonry, as he is taken as one of the patrons of the Craft, and it was on this day in 1717 that the first Grand Lodge was officially formed in London. For Masons it is, therefore, the first day of a new Masonic year, and one where…
