5th Circuit Ruling

!!!Notice to All Master Masons Under the Jurisdiction of!!!

The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana.

A few weeks ago a rumor began to spread that there would be a “Grand Lodge Meeting” to be held on April 13, 2019, or some similar date, at the Pontchartrain Center located in Kenner, LA. There were a number of calls into the Grand Lodge office making inquiries about said meeting.

Based on a recent Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, see it here, there will be no additional or supplemental Grand Lodge Meeting or “Meeting of the Members” to be held in Jefferson Parish in the foreseeable future.

We will proceed with our normal Grand Lodge Session which is scheduled to be held on June 27, 28, 29, & 30, 2019. The actual session is set for June 29 &30 while Committee and Board Meetings will be held on June 27 and 28.

Should you have any questions about this matter feel free to contact us at the Grand Lodge Office, 318-443-5610, or glodge@la-mason.com.

Thank you for your time and attention in this matter.
