Presenting Lectures Assignments for the Educational Passport Program
The Educational Passport

A series of lectures to promote travel within the Fifth Manhattan Masonic District. This two year program's subject is the Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Each Lodge within the District will present a lecture one of the Liberals Arts and Sciences as shown below. All Brothers interested can attend the lectures and are encouraged to do so. This is an effort to spread light and focus on increased attendance and travel. When a Brother attends a Lecture below, his Passport is stamped on the corresponding Lodge. Once a Brother completes his Passport, he will be recognized (TBD).
We are committed to presenting the lecture this year ( and next) 2017-2018.
The 2019-2020 program will focus on the three and five steps.
Please be sure to request an Educational Passport from the Secretary of your Lodge.
