First time here? Greetings!
Returning? Welcome back!
The Maine Masonic College is an initiative of the Grand Lodge of Masons in Maine - the Freemasons. Our goal is to create educational opportunities for Freemasons in our jurisdiction and for friends and neighbors in the communities where we live and work.
Upcoming Courses & Programs
January 12 An interactive and participant friendly course in Persuasive and Informative Speech- a must for anyone who wants to work with and for people. Our instructor will be an expert in this field of rhetoric, Professor Diane Keeling of the University of Maine. The place is the Bangor Masonic Center from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm with lunch served at noon. There will be a $5.00 charge for lunch. Open to all. Join us in this opportunity for increasing the power of the instructive tongue and the attentive ear.
February 16 The Maine Masonic College presents our annual Celebration of the Arts and Sciences! This celebration is becoming one of the major events in the Masonic calendar within our jurisdiction. This year we focus on Art with Professor Michael Grillo, head of the Art Department at the University of Maine, as our instructor. Professor Grillo will lead us in a look at cathedrals and how they interpreted classical architecture for the people of the Middle Ages. Professor Grillo's thesis will be that in every age essential institutions must bring fundamental understandings to the people in a language which is meaningful to them. This is the mission of the university and Freemasonry alike among other vital institutions. Don't miss this very special and powerful opportunity! Open to all.
Place the Bangor Masonic Center from 9:00am to 2:00 pm with lunch served. Charge $5.00 for lunch.

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 a growing variety of 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.
In addition, we are developing audio and video material along with reading lists and more. At the Maine Masonic College, we encourage your input, your recommendations, and - most of all - your INVOLVEMENT!
