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 .

Important Note

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 2, 2017 - Astronomy

Of all the arts and sciences, Astronomy has the closest association with our human feeling of awe and our search for who and where we are. The Maine Masonic College through the University of Maine is pleased to present this planetarium program once each year for the enjoyment and edification of the whole family. The program is typically a blend of a guide in observing the nighttime sky and an adventure into new discoveries in deep space.  We have chosen December as the month for this occasion. The specific date will be announced
