Pajarito Masonic Lodge #66 is proud to announce its Installation of Officers, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19.
The Installation Ceremony is one of the very few traditional Masonic Rituals that is open to the public. Anyone interested or curious about Freemasonry is welcome to come to the Lodge and get a taste of what the organization is all about.
Freemasonry is often described as the world’s oldest and largest fraternity. Though there are artifacts that date back to the 1300’s, the structured and well documented form that exists today was established in 1717 c.e. in London, England. With Lodges all over the world, Freemasonry spans the boundaries imposed by societies.
Freemasonry’s singular purpose is to make good men better and its bonds of friendship, truth and brotherly love have survived even the most divisive political, military and religious conflicts through the centuries.
Though there is a requirement for belief in a Supreme Being, Freemasonry is neither a forum for nor a place of worship. It is not a religion, but rather teaches moral (secular) philosophy through activity. For nearly 300 years it has attracted men of high moral character who support the tenets of temperance, fortitude, prudence and justice.
Festivities for Saturday’s Installation of Officers begins at 10 a.m. at the Lodge (corner of 15th Street and Canyon Road) and will include refreshments following the Installation.
