Welcome Message from our Worshipful
Master for 2014: W. Bro. Chris McAuley
you for visiting our Lodge website".
On behalf of the brethren
of The Belfast Masonic Lodge 651, I
extend a warm, fraternal welcome to all visitors to our website,
whether a Mason or not.
I hope you will find this site
interesting and informative, whether you are interested in Freemasony
generally, or wish to join our Lodge as a member of the Irish
Constitution or from another Masonic Constitution.
Our regular meetings are on the 3rd
Monday of every month, except June, July, and August,
and our usual starting time is 6.51pm.
Inaugurated on 19th January 2009, this dynamic
young Lodge, under the Irish Constitution, takes its name from Belfast,
the capital city of Northern Ireland and the Belfast Lodge No 257
when it merged with 'Finaghy Masonic Lodge No 651'. We sit in the
heart of Belfast, in Freemasons' Hall, Arthur Square.
Both Lodges have had a distinguished history and details of these
can be found on this website.
One of our aims is to maintain and enhance
the excellent social life which has developed at Freemasons' Hall
by organising events at which both Masons and non-Masons are welcome.
A 'Ladies Night' will be an annual event where we can raise money
for our 'Lodge Widows' and other non Masonic charities as well as
enjoying the company of Family and friends.
A further aim, is to include an element of
Masonic education (not research) into each of our meetings thus
contributing to a general advancement of Masonic knowledge.
We have drawn our membership from far and wide and, if you wish
to join us as either a member or a guest, you will be made very
