Masonic Moonlight Journey

Have you completed your Masonic Moonlight Journey? Have you ever heard of the Masonic Moonlight Journey?

In days of old, when streetlights were few and headlights had not yet been invented, many rural Lodges met according to the light of the moon so that members traveling at night could safely see their way home.

Twelve Lodges still hold the lunar tradition of meeting by the light of the moon! This is your opportunity to visit them.

Several years ago, the Grand Lodge office began issuing the Masonic Moonlight Journey Certificate. The premise is to encourage Brothers to travel all across the state of Ohio visiting these wonderful Lodges that hold true to this lunar tradition. Once you’ve visited a Lodge, the Secretary affixes their Lodge seal and date of your visit on the certificate. This repeats until you’ve visited all twelve of the Lodges.

The miles are many and the hours are long to complete this journey. When you’re finished, the Brothers you’ve met and the places you’ve seen make it well worth it!

Here are the full moon dates for 2023: January 6th, February 5th, March 7th, April 6th, May 5th, June 3rd, July 3rd, August 1st, August 30th, September 29th, October 28th, November 27th, and December 26th.
