Who we are

The Kindred Lodges Association (KLA) was formed in 1952 to encourage Masonic Lodges formed by, or including, Masons who are, or were, involved in Youth Work to link together.

Membership of the KLA is available to existing Freemasons either through being a member of a subscribing lodge, or as an individual Associate Member. Whether as a Member or an Associate Member, you have the same rights and privileges due to all masons with the ability to attend any Festival Meeting of the Association.

The prime activity, other than encouraging inter Lodge visiting, is to hold two Festival meetings each year. The dress for these meetings is the uniform of their youth organisation for those entitled to wear it. An occasional newsletter is distributed to all individual associate members as well as the member Lodges.
