Welcome to Chemainus Lodge No. 114

Having adopted the name of Chemainus Lodge on March 6, 1926, the Masonic Brethren of Chemainus sent a letter, along with a petition to the Grand Lodge of British Columbia (now the Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon) requesting support for the Chemainus effort to form a Lodge. Chemainus Lodge No. 114 Ancient Free & Accepted Masons received it's Charter July 16, 1927.


Chemainus Lodge is in District 27 on Vancouver Island, and meets in St. John's Masonic Temple, in Ladysmith.  The Lodge proudly performs the Emulation Ritual, as performed by the United Grand Lodge of England since 1815. 


Our next Regular Communication will be on
Monday, June 10, 2024,
at St. John's Masonic Temple, Ladysmith.  There will be a reception and dinner at 6:00 p.m.
This will be the final regular meeting of the year, however, Lodge work will continue through the summer, as we prepare for the next Masonic year.

Watch for us at the 11th tee of the Cowichan Valley Shrine Golf Tournament, at Mt. Brenton Golf Club, on Friday, July 26th. The Lodge will also be represented in the Duncan Days Parade, on Saturday, July 13th.


Marking our 96th Year


As our 2023/24 Masonic year nears completion, we can be proud of our accomplishments this year.  The Lodge raised two new Master Masons, and we are well on the way to raising Bro. Aaron Davidson, he having been passed to the Fellowcraft Degree on May 27th.  Our recent communication, held in the former Chemainus Lodge building (The Willow St. Cafe), proved to be a very rewarding experience, and one we hope to continue in the future.  

I want to thank all the Officers and Brethren of Chemainus Lodge for entrusting me with the stewardship of the Lodge this year.  I look forward to continuing with our efforts to reconnect with the communities of Chemainus and Crofton, and to encourage the young men of the area to take a look at Freemasonry as an honourable pursuit. 

Sincerely and Fraternally

Very Worshipful Brother Terry van Seters
