Administrative history

The province of Saskatchewan received its first Masonic charter from the Grand Lodge in Canada in 1879. It wasn’t until August 3, 1906 that a grand lodge was created for the province in Regina.

During the Second World War, the Mossbank Masonic Lodge #29 was host to the “Hostess Club” which was set up for training pilots from the nearby RCAF base.

The lodge was amalgamated with the St. John’s Lodge #106, Assiniboia in 2006.
