“Freemasonry within a temple of stone cannot be other than speculative,
-Manly P. Hall
Starting on October 18th, 2011, at 6:00 pm, S.W. Hackett Lodge #574 will be offering further education in the Masonic ways. This is only the beginning. It is hoped that all the Brothers will attend to increase their knowledge in all things Masonic. From the meaning of our ancient rituals to the depths of the esoteric meanings behind the oldest fraternity in the world. This "study" and "lecture" opportunity will be open to Brothers of all degrees and all lodges and each will leave with new thoughts and a better understanding of what "we" are and how best to live up to our motto of taking a good man and making him better.
Each person attending will be strongly encouraged to be a part of the discussion and to bring their questions with them. We may not have the answers, but then, researching and discovering is what a study group is for. Every Brother's opinion and contribution can be an asset to this gathering as it sparks great dialogue and furthers our knowledge and thirst for answers.
There will be occasions when the discussions or lectures will be of a very general nature so the even non-masons can attend. On these evenings each Brother is encouraged to bring any friends that may have an interest in our fraternity so that they may make a clear decision about whether Masonry is for him or not.
PLEASE WATCH THE FRONT PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE ON THE TOP OF THE LEFT COLUMN TO SEE WHAT IS SCHEDULED NEXT AND BE SURE TO PLAN TO ATTEND. THE MEETING PLACE WILL BE AT THE SCOTTISH RITE CENTER 1895 CAMINO DEL RIO SOUTH. WE WILL BE GATHERING IN THE LIBRARY AND IF WE GET THE CROWD WE HOPE TO SEE, WE WILL MOVE INTO THE LODGE ROOM.
