South Miami DeMolay Chapter would like to exemplify the DeMolay Degree to Masons in South Miami Lodge as a token of their appreciation for continuous support.



This degree, as I was told, depicts the final days in the life of Jacques DeMoaly during the inquisition, and bears striking similarity to the second section of The Sublime Degree of Master Mason.



So join us on Tuesday September 29 at 7:30 pm at South Miami Lodge for a fun ...

" We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal: that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights: that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new govern...

Please see photo in the photo section.

Freemasonry can count many extraordinary members in its history, but surely one of the greatest must be Abd El-Kader ? an Algerian nationalist, a Sufi Saint, and a towering figure of nineteenth-century Islam.

Abd El-Kader was born at Guetna near Mascara in Algeria in 1808. He was a descendent of the Prophet Mohammed and by the age of fourteen he memorized the entire Koran. In November 1832 he succeeded his father as ...

It is an emblem of innocence symboled in white,

And purity ever brings the ...

If difficulties arise, we must put forth new exertion and proportion our efforts to the exigencies of the times.”
