"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."


“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.”
— William Howard Taft

Some Unique Masonic Happenings


Since 2015, the Grand Lodge F&AM of Indiana has organized an annual event with the National Football League and the Indianapolis Colts. This year we are celebrating our bicentennial year of Freemasonry in the state.

On Sunday, November 18th, over 400 Indiana Freemasons carried out an enormous American flag onto the field and unfurled it prior to the opening kick off against the Tennessee Titans. 


Our participants each receive a special Colts jersey emblazoned with a square and compass, and our families and friends are welcomed and encouraged to participate with us.






A video from our first year can be seen on the Grand Lodge Facebook page HERE.

And a more recent video from the 2017 flag ceremony is HERE.





Over the weekend, the the 20th and 19th Masonic districts of Florida hosted an outdoor degree conferral at the Masonic Park and Youth Camp in Wimauma. Two brethren were raised in this beautiful setting.




Florida's Masonic Park and Youth Camp is one of a handful of special recreational parks created by Freemasons throughout the United States. Opened in 1969, it has camping facilities, trails, cabins, stables, and recreational vehicle parking. Use of the outdoor Lodge can be requested by Masonic or fraternal organizations, subject to the MPYC Board approval and availability. 

While created by and for Masons, the park is open to the public. Their website is HERE.
