Grand Master’s Classes for 2019

Grand Master Jess N. Raines has authorized a series of Grand Master’s Classes for 2019. Unlike previous years, these classes will run from January through September. The intent is to give as many men as possible an opportunity to become a Master Mason and not be limited to one day during the year.

Thus, while the expectation is that most men will attend the Class for their District, they can attend any Grand Master’s Class in the State. Candidates must petition a Lodge, be investigated, and elected by unanimous ballot. There should be no corners cut in terms of our high standards. Candidates will need to be registered in advance through their Lodge, and they will need to be accompanied by a mentor who will guide them through the day and the degrees. To be declared proficient, the new Master Mason will need to return and attend a meeting in his home Lodge within the first 60 days. He will not be eligible to join any other appendant order until 60 days has elapsed since his degrees.

The Grand Master expects that each Masonic District or Region will provide a day marked by outstanding work and extraordinary fellowship. He hopes that becoming a Mason will be a life-changing event for these men.
