The Empire State Building no doubt will be illuminated in the blue, white, and red of the Tricolour when l’Union Française No. 17–this is J.J.J. Gourgas’ lodge and the oldest lodge in the Tenth Manhattan District–will confer the Entered Apprentice Degree on four candidates, in ritual descendant from the French Rite, with purification elements of Rosicrucian origin kept alive since 1797.
This is where Garibaldi Lodge’s EA° comes from.
Tuesday, June 20 at 6 p.m.
71 West 23rd Street, Manhattan
French Doric Room, tenth floor
The degree will begin at 6:45, after which no one will be admitted.
The Tenth Manhattan is home to the lodges permitted to work exotic Craft degrees in French, Italian, and Spanish (and maybe other tongues).
Photo ID is required to enter Masonic Hall, and your current membership card is required to work your way into the lodge room. The brethren will retire to a nearby restaurant afterward ($50 per person, cash only).
