Freemasonry in the Community: African Masons set the pace

Tuesday, 01 October 2002

Overseas District Grand Lodges also took part in Freemasonry in the Community Week

In Sierra Leone, the Irish and Scottish Constitution Masons joined in the celebrations.

There was a Masonic evening at the British Council Hall in Freetown, a sponsored walk in aid of charity, a Grand Thanksgiving Service at Wesley Methodist Church and a visit to the King George VI Home for the Aged.

The walk took place through a well-travelled and popular route through the major streets of Freetown, with the Masonic participants in t-shirts with the square and compasses on them.

The District Grand Master, Dr. R.N.F. Cummings, led the church service with K.A.B. Ferguson, Grand Inspector of Irish Lodges in Sierra Leone and Canon V.J. Hastings-Spaine, Depute District Grand Master, Scottish Constitution, also in attendance. 

Contributions were made to the rebuilding of Holy Trinity Church in Freetown and a mosque in Wellington, both destroyed during the civil conflict.
