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 .
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.
March 2, 2019 - VirtruviousIn the reign of Caesar Augustus, Vitruvius was an engineer who wrote a series of texts on Architecture and the art of building. We read those texts with amazement. So often what Vitruvius has to say shares with the world-view of modern Freemasonry- a “virtually seamless relationship... between the critical, rational methods of science and the maintenance of the ancestral traditions including religion” or perhaps as better phrased, a spiritual reverence for the beauty and the order of the universe. This course introduces what Vitruvius sees as fundamental to the work of the Builder along with the importance of the Arts and Sciences in an inspirational adventure with very practical results.
