The Maine Masonic College is an initiative of the Grand Lodge of Masons in Maine – the fraternity of Freemasons. Our goal is to create educational opportunities for members in our jurisdiction and for friends and neighbors in the communities where we live and work.
To Bring More Light
The Maine Masonic College endeavors to bring programs to enrich and stimulate. Using a variety of modalities, our goal is to help our society remember its past, understand its present and look forward confidently.
The College Briefly
Our name inspires us to a ‘higher educational calling’. We are not a bricks and mortar school but a ‘Temple of Knowledge’, offering learning opportunities in various modalities.
We believe that Freemasonry is relevant in society today, helping to create a continuum of knowledge for those who are interested in personal enrichment.
Masonic ritual exhorts us to broaden our knowledge of the seven liberal arts and sciences. Thus, our programs include topics of interest to anyone with an inquisitive mind: ethics, astronomy, logic, public speaking and more. We have molded the Maine Masonic College on the best features of not only traditional and modern Masonic-oriented education but also ‘senior college’ and lifelong learning endeavors.
At the Maine Masonic College, we encourage your input, your recommendations, and – most of all – your INVOLVEMENT!
Special Shorter Programs
The Maine Masonic College also provides shorter programs of high interest and use to the Craft. These presentation are especially well suited for lodge and district settings. Topics include The Amazing Fellowcraft Degree, Harmony of the Seasons, Cosmology and Our Ritual, The Letter G, Masonry and the American Revolution. Contact R.W.

Opinions expressed by the instructors and Regents of the Maine Masonic College do not represent the/an ‘official’ position of Freemasonry or of the Grand Lodge of Masons in Maine.
No one person speaks for Freemasonry. Only the Grand Master can speak for Freemasonry within his own jurisdiction and then, only during his term of office.
December 10, 2016 - SymbolismThis class has been postponed to February 18, 2017 due to illness This course will help establish a foundation of understanding for several Maine Masonic College courses dealing with Masonic and other forms of symbolism, allegory, myth and philosophical expressions of belief. It was developed from a psychological and practical perspective which examines the use of dynamic roles of symbols as instruments of understanding and vehicles of exploration both in our personal lives and in our mutual and significant inter-relationships with others. The lecture portion of this course explores the use of certain symbols of the Masonic degree experience. Participants will be divided into groups and given practical; exercises in which to explore the significance and efficacy of symbols in the process of developing individual and group insights in their encounter with human situations and in their search for greater understanding. This is a practical applications course and is critical for mentors of any organization in which symbolism plays and important role.
