Welcome to Mankato Masonic Lodge #12
Our Lodge has been in Mankato for over 150 years. We are in the oldest building in town, and the Lodge has been in it for over 130 years. Freemasonry is the world’s oldest fraternal organization. While we do engage in philanthropic and service endeavors, we exist primarily for brotherhood and to “make good men better.”
What Is The Masonic Lodge?
The word "Lodge" means both a group of Masons meeting together as well as the room or building in which they meet. Masonic buildings are sometimes called "temples" because the original meaning of the term was a "place of knowledge" and Masonry encourages the advancement of knowledge.
Masonic Lodges usually meet once or twice a month to conduct regular business, vote upon petitions for membership, and bring new Masons into the Fraternity through three ceremonies called degrees. In the Lodge room Masons share in a variety of programs. Here the bonds of friendship and fellowship are formed and strengthened.
