Dear Brethren 

The Grand Lodge of Cyprus will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary on 29th October 2016, a truly historic occasion to mark its decennial establishment on our island..

Despite the young existence of our Grand Lodge, the historical roots of Freemasonry in Cyprus go back over 200 years. Historical records place Freemasons in the Larnaca district where at that time all consulates were located. Larnaca was then considered the capital of Cyprus and was the main port of the island. This is documented by the existence of graves bearing Masonic marks and by an 1815 circular against Masons written by Archbishop of Cyprus, Kyprianos. In 1888, ten years after the British Occupation of Cyprus, the United Grand Lodge of England established its first lodge in Cyprus and the Grand Lodge of Greece followed in 1895.

Though just one decade into its establishment, the Grand Lodge of Cyprus has developed significantly in prominence through the addition of numerous new lodges throughout the island, ten of which are working with the Greek Ritual, three with the English Ritual and one each with the German and Italian Rituals.

Under our auspices there are also four York Rite Chapters as well as four Cryptic Councils which are working with the Greek Rituals and one with the English Rituals.

It will be our great honor and privilege to welcome you to the festivities on the occasion of this particular milestone, of the Grand Lodge of Cyprus and receive your valued support..

Petros S. Machalepis,
Grand Master
Grand Lodge of Cyprus.
