At the meeting of the Wyggeston Lodge No.3448 on Friday 21st October 2016 at Freemasons’ Hall, Leicester, Bro. Connagh McCormick was initiated into the lodge.
Bro. Connagh is a third year Law student at the University of Leicester and was interested in becoming a Freemason after his Dad became a member in Norfolk a number of years ago. As the Universities Scheme lodge for University of Leicester students and staff, he found out about the lodge via its’ website and contacted us last year about how to join.
Bro. Connagh said: “I see Freemasonry as being a brilliant opportunity for me to socialise and meet new people. I also want to expand and widen my knowledge of Freemasonry and learn what it has to give. I also see it is an opportunity to work on my confidence.”
The Initiation ceremony was a fitting start to the new Masonic season where Bro. Connagh was welcomed into the lodge by the Master W.Bro. Paul Bodycot on what was his last ceremony before installing his successor in November.
The lodge was also pleased to welcome Bro. Connagh’s Dad, Bro. Jason McCormick, to witness his son being initiated into Freemasonry. Bro. Jason said: “Thank you for a great night, Connagh enjoyed himself very much and I look forward to visiting again.”
