“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”

"Looking Back At Our Future" Masonic Symposium, Dayton, OH This Weekend: 3/9/18

Last chance to sign up for this weekend's Masonic Lodge Symposium, "Looking back At Our Future," at the Dayton Masonic Center, 525 West Riverview Avenue, Dayton, Ohio
Friday, March 9, and Saturday, March 10, 2018.

Registration ends tonight, Monday, March 5th, so don't wait!


"This symposium is designed to offer the participants a look at how five lodges have approached the challenges of practicing Freemasonry in the Twenty-First Century. Each of these lodges have followed a path unique to them in exploring Freemasonry, its lessons, teachings, and past practices whereby to assemble a operating paradigm which meets the needs of their members. It is our hope that all who attend will gather ideas that they find helpful to the operation of their own lodges to launch them on the path to a more enlightened and rewarding practice of Freemasonry. The goal is not to create clones, but to inspire as we all learn from each other."
