There are no strangers in Freemasonry,

only Friends you've yet to meet

For me, Freemasonry was a part of my life growing up. My Stepfather, Ch. Supt. Norman Jones Deceased was a 65 year Mason. I was alway curious about the Fraternity and the meetings he would frequent so one day I asked him. As it turned out I also had a friend of the family who had moved to BC who was a Mason. It just made sense to join.

My connection with Freemasonry started in my youth when I joined the Organization of DeMolay. At every meeting a Master Mason was in attendance, and thus a strong bond was formed with my Chapter Dad and others. I admired and respected the Mason’s that I dealt with during my youth, and it was only natural that I take the next step. Freemasonry is a way of life, and has been in my life for over 50 years, a decision that I never have, nor ever will regret.

our vision

The Members of St. James will be recognized as a relevant and respected Fraternity, committed to attracting, developing and retaining all men of high quality who strive for self improvement and the opportunity to make a positive difference in their community, and in the lives of those around them.

our mission

Freemasonry in St. James strives to satisfy our members as we teach moral standards, and support a way of life that promotes fellowship, brotherhood, and self-improvement through excellence in leadership, education, family, charity, and community involvement.

Our Membership

St. James membership comes from every walk in life and from all over the Lower Mainland Vancouver British Columbia. We pride ourselves on the work we do both in and out of the lodge. We are always looking for new sincere, just and upright men to join our fraternity. Please feel free to browse through the site and contact us if you would like further information. Remember you can make a difference, you just have to want to.
