St. James Lodge No 80, is one of six lodges in District 23 under the Grand Lodge of British Columbia & Yukon. Its members meet regularly at the Freemasons Hall, 15302 Pacific Avenue in White Rock, on the second and fourth Tuesday’s of every month, at 8:00 p.m., except in July and August. We practice Canadian Masonic Ritual.
St. James Lodge has had an interesting history from its very foundation. Instituted as “St. Andrew’s Lodge” in March 1915 by M.W.Bro. James Stark, it was eventually consecrated in June 1915 as “St. James Lodge” by the then Grand Master, M.W.Bro. W.C. Ditmar, in the Vancouver Masonic Temple on Seymour Street.
Its members originated from backgrounds in forestry, mining, police and hydro, although in the 80’s, there was a significant influx of DeMolay members, who, to this day, provide firm leadership in the performance of fine Ritual.
Eventually, the foresighted Brethren of the Lodge decided that a better future lay in the suburbs, and, in 1990 it was moved to its present address, where it pursues a productive existence.
