The Pioneer Lodge Elizabeth St Leger is a Co-Masonic Lodge with The International Order of Freemasonry for Men & Women, Le Droit Humain (L.D.H.), under the auspices of the Supreme Council 33°.
Co-Freemasonry is Freemasonry for men and women, equally, since 1893.
“The International Order of Freemasonry, Le Droit Humain, is an initiatory, philosophical, secular, philanthropic and Masonic institution whose aim is to work for the perfection or progress of humanity. On an individual level, it strives ‘to promote the progress of individual worth, without the imposition of dogma, or exacting the abandonment of cultural or religious ideas’. On a group level ‘it works to unite men and women who agree on a humanist spirituality whilst respecting individual and cultural differences”.
The International Order of Freemasonry, Le Droit Humain, is worldwide. Membership is open to men and women, without distinction of ethnicity or personal beliefs. Our Order is founded on the ancient teachings and traditions of Freemasonry and works a system of initiatory continuity from the 1st to the 33rd Degree, inclusive, of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite.
The principles, rituals and traditions of the Order are those of the Grand Scottish Constitution of 1786, revised and agreed by the national Supreme Council of the A.A.S.& R. at Lausanne in 1876. The British Federation was founded in 1902 by Annie Besant; the International Order in 1893.
Masonic ritual and symbolism are the tools Freemasons use in the search for Truth, whether this is their personal spiritual journey or a path towards the perfection of mankind; to Liberty, Equality and Fraternity – human rights, Le Droit Humain.”
