A Message From The Grand East

To God be the glory!

Welcome to the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Georgia, where I’m honored and humbled to serve as the 18th Most Worshipful Grand Master. Our honored institution of Prince Hall Masonry in Georgia welcome all sojourners to fellowship with us and do God’s will of serving His people. On behalf of all Master Masons owing allegiance to the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, Jurisdiction of Georgia, and all concordant bodies of Masonry, I welcome you to our corner of the world. We are the largest fraternal organization collectively within the state of Georgia with a rich history of over 150 years practicing benevolence, intellectual development and mutual respect. We seek to unite men of differing races, beliefs and backgrounds into a harmonious and productive community through the application of moral values and the practice of Brotherly Love, Faith and Charity. Feel free to browse our site to learn more about us and our mission in our respective communities.

But God,

Princely Grant for historic Masonic hall renovation

The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Georgia is excited to have the city of Atlanta’s support as we restore our historic home on Auburn Avenue. We look forward to doing our part to sustain the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., while educating the world about the vibrant, economically progressive Black community where he was born and raised.

But God Initiative

Matthew 17:20

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. By the numbers it means that 80% of all outcomes come from just 20% of inputs. It is OUR time! It is OUR season! To go from GOOD to GREAT!!

Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We have been committed to keeping our members updated about the rapidly developing situation with COVID-19. Throughout the process, we have relied on the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as, our state leaders and other outlets.

In accordance with the National State of Emergency issued by the President of the United States and to best prioritize our membership’s safety, effective Monday, March 16th, all scheduled monthly meetings and events for all concordant bodies within the Jurisdiction of Georgia i.e. Ancient Craft, O.E.S, Scottish Rite and York Rite Bodies are cancelled until further notice.

The decision to cancel scheduled meetings and events was not easy. All State Heads of Houses are in agreement with this decision which best supports the health and welfare of the members in this Jurisdiction. It is very important that our members respect these efforts toward minimizing exposure to this virus.

We will continue to keep you updated on the next steps as more information becomes available from local, state, and national government. We know this is a very difficult time for our membership and the community. We will work together to get through this unprecedented time.
