Prince Hall Freemasonry (also known as African American Freemasonry) was named after Prince Hall (c.?1735–1807). He was an African American noted as an abolitionist, for his leadership in the free black community in Boston, and as the founder of Prince Hall Freemasonry, he lobbied for education rights for black children and was active in the back-to-Africa movement. He is considered one of the most influential free black leaders in the late 1700s.
You are encouraged to either e-mail us (email@example.com ) or connect with a lodge officer to learn more about membership. A person must pass through a series of educational steps and learn our organization’s laws; they are encouraged to gain a deep understanding of themselves and their Supreme Being, no matter how they imagine him to be. There are certain rules as to who can become a Mason. Everyone is welcome but not everyone is accepted.
Our membership is private not secret. We are the oldest fraternity in the world and can trace our history to biblical times. Our membership is worldwide, our lodges are clearly visible and our deeds are publicly noted. We march in parades, dedicate buildings visit the sick and shut in and feed the less fortunate. Our members come from all walks of life such as teachers, policeman, doctors, lawyers, sailors, soldiers, janitors, shopkeepers, congressmen and presidents.
At Eureka Lodge #36, throughout the year, our four (4) key pillars of focus will be to 1) strengthen the bonds of BROTHERHOOD, 2) execute the charitable BUSINESS of Masons within our community, 3) improve ourselves personally and professionally through studying the BOOKS of knowledge, and 4) enhance our physical BUILDING and surroundings. All of which are possible when we work together in harmony and for the greater good of our Craft.
