Freemasonry on the Moon

The irony of these words is that, not only was this the first time humans contacted the surface of another heavenly body, but it was the first time Freemasonry made physical contact with the moon. Among the personal items that Buzz Aldrin brought with...

Masonic Lodge Meetings | What to avoid and improve

5/17/2022
Our stated meetings don't have a reputation for being the most amazing in the world. Honestly, sometimes our meetings resemble more a HOA meeting than anything else.

Freemasonry Down Under | The Lost Interview

Freemasonry Down Under | The Uniqueness of Australian Masonry Freemasonry down under may be slightly different than what you may think. The structure of the organization is very interesting in a way that allows for the ritual to be separate from the administrative side of Masonry. For example, Victoria Freemasons have a CEO who handles the business side of the organization. Interestingly enough, in 2016 this male-only organization was led by a woman.
