Public Relations Resources

Minnesota communities, by and large, are unaware about the great fraternity, which is called Freemasonry. This was due, in part, to Masons being quiet about their good works, and a time when men actively sought to join us. Today, Americans are busier then ever before due to work, family and other organizations vying for their membership.

The Grand Lodge of Minnesota recognized that Brethren needed tools which did not have to be reinvented each time, would maximize the Masonic experience for others and would inform communities of their presence in a meaningful way.

The documents on these pages, which have come from many sources, are there for your use. Feel free to make changes to meet the needs of your lodge. Masonry encompasses both how we use our time and the effect time has on shaping who we are.  The documents are in Microsoft Word format so you will need a MS Word compatible word processor to work with these documents.  Use your time wisely.
