The Masonic World Grows

Two posts in one day! Heresy! Actually, this is just a short post.

Most of you know of my love all things fez like, so I generally keep up on what is going on with the groups that happen to wear them as part of their regalia. Thanks to Bro. Chris Hodapp (of the Freemasons for Dummies blog) I found out that the Shriners have just expanded their reach into Europe by opening Emirat Shrine in Heidleberg, Germany. This is the first time that an independent Shrine has existed on European soil, making this a huge step for Shriners International.

Why is this important to us as DeMolays? As DeMolay continues to grow in Italy, Romania, and other European Countries, other parts of the American Masonic tradition are starting to jump the pond as well. For the first time in history, Masonic innovations in one part of the world are being easily transported to other areas. This is creating a truly world-wide fraternal experience for both DeMolays and Freemasons.

Congratulations to the members of Emirat Temple and we hope to see European DeMolay grow in conjunction with them!
