Ad Orientem Masonic Lodge - Free and Accepted Masons
Ad Orientem Lodge is a committee petitioning to form a
masonic lodge in the Central Leatherstocking District under the
Jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the State of New York.
The lodge committee was formed in 2017 when several brothers from the district came together because they wanted to experience freemasonry using the practices of the observance movement.
For almost a year the brothers of Ad Orientem traveled the district and held their meetings in neighboring lodge buildings and the back rooms of public houses.
This year, the brothers of Ad Orientem agreed to leave the backrooms of the pubs behind, and for the first time in hundreds of years return masonry to the Town of Richmondville, New York.
A location was decided upon and the brothers agreed to hold their meetings there on the last friday of every month of the year. The meeting location is a closely held secret by the brothers and only conveyed in code, and to those who are worthy and well qualified.
If you are a Master Mason and would like to attend a meeting, or if you would like to petition the lodge for membership, contact the secretary at the below email.
