Welcome to the District Grand Lodge of Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, the governing body for English Freemasonry in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.
The District is comprised of Lodges and Chapters spanning ten islands along the Eastern Caribbean. It boasts a proud and long history dating to 1738 making it one of the oldest regions with masonic activity.
One of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, the roots of modern Freemasonry lie with the medieval stonemasons that built our castles and cathedrals, yet it is as relevant today as it was hundreds of years ago.
Freemasons use four important guiding principles to help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity.
Membership is open to people from all backgrounds and the organisation’s aim is to empower members to be the best they can be – it’s about building character, supporting members as individuals and helping them make a positive contribution to society.
Freemasonry provides a structure for members to come together under these common goals, enabling people to make new friendships, develop themselves and make valuable contributions to charitable causes.
