Maine Masonic College

 

 

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. Donald McDougal, Chairman of this service to the Craft. His phone number is 938-2290, and his email address is .

Out There: The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds

For thousands of years, mankind thought that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge to explore, we now know that planets like our Earth are nothing special in the cosmos. The Sun is just one ordinary star among hundreds of billions in our galaxy, the Milky Way. With the world’s most powerful telescopes, we are able to explore more and more of the Universe. What we have found so far has surpassed even the wildest expectations of scientists as well as authors of science fiction. Most stars have planets — it turns out they are more common than we thought. A huge diversity of different worlds is out there, just waiting to be discovered. Join as we explore these new worlds!
