The Free and Accepted Masons, or just Masonic Lodge, is the world’s oldest fraternity and you will find its organizations, called Lodges, all across the World. Its primary purpose is to build men of character. St. Johns Lodge #20 has existed for nearly 200 years to allow men to know others that they might not otherwise know. Historic origins of modern Freemasonry can be traced to the stonemasons guilds that formed during the Middle Ages in Europe. Guilds were developed to train men in skills needed to construct magnificent cathedrals and castles. Over time, these guilds allowed some who were not actual stone masons to join their ranks, known likely as “admitted” or “accepted” masons. Men of thought were drawn to the idea of creating cathedrals of men – character, balance, and a spiritual belief in something beyond what we see on earth. By the 1700s the Grand Lodge, or association of four principle lodges of Freemasonry, was founded in England. Freemasonry in the United States is slightly different than in other parts of the world. The United States does not have one national Grand Lodge, but rather each state has its own Grand Lodge that is seperate from each other state. All of the lodges within a particular state are under the jurisdiction of that state's Grand Lodge with few exceptions.
