I would like to invite each of you, and all of the constituent Lodges of The Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana, to join us on Monday, February 22, 2021 to honor and celebrate the birthday of our Illustrious Brother George Washington.  Each year, the Memorial hosts a Gala for Washington’s Birthday.  Yet, because of restrictions in place for everyone’s safety during the pandemic, the 2021 Washington’s Birthday Celebration will be online.  This event will be live-streamed next Monday.  Please follow us on Facebook to stay informed and to get the latest information for the event.  More information can be found at

Lodge Furniture available

The pictures below are Lodge furniture that is being offered to Lodges that have been damaged by hurricanes. The furniture is located in Houston, TX, and was used in Walter M. Pierson Lodge #1339. They have sold their building and must be out by the first of November.  The only catch is that someone will need to go pick up the items in Houston. So, if any of our Lodges are interested please contact the Grand Secretary’s office for more information on who to contact to make arrangements for pickup.

Hurricanes Marco and Laura

The Grand Master has requested we remind everyone to be prepared for the possible incoming storms by ensuring your Lodge Records are secure and safe from any potential flooding. We pray for all to weather these storms with care and safety. Please stay aware and prepared as the upcoming days are uncertain at best. We shall keep our state and the Brethren in our thoughts and prayers. Please feel free to reach out if there is anything we may do to assist in any way.


Directive 2020-05

Directive 2020-05

July 14, 2020

Now that the actual Proclamation Number 89 JBE 2020 from Governor John Bel Edwards concerning face masks has been released, we should clarify the Directive from the Grand Master issued on July 13, 2020.

One of the exceptions that are contained in the Proclamation states that “Any individual who….will be able to maintain strict social distancing of six feet apart from any other individual” is exempt from the mask requirement. 

Please be advised of this clarification and act accordingly.
