Ben Hur Lodge of Kansas City, KS
Welcome to the official website of Ben Hur Masonic Lodge #332 of Kansas City, KS.
Freemasonry is the oldest, largest and most widely recognized fraternal organization in the world. As a fraternal organization, Freemasonry unites men of good character who, though of different religious, ethnic, or social backgrounds, share a belief in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of mankind.
The traditions of Free masonry are founded upon the building of King Solomon's Temple, and its fraternal ceremonies use the working tools of the stonemasons to symbolize moral lessons and truths.
Like most organizations, one will get out of Free masonry what he is able to put into it. However, membership in Freemasonry is not meant in any way to interfere with an individuals commitment to his faith, family, or occupation. It is not a replacement for these important institutions, but rather it is a positive environment that reminds every Mason of his duty to God, his community, his family and himself.
Becoming part of a masonic lodge provides for excellent fellowship. At lodge meetings and social functions, our members forge friendships that last a lifetime with like-minded men who share a deep moral connection. Beyond the local lodge, our members enjoy the firendship of other masons in the community, and are welcomed as a "brother" by Masons everywhere in the world.
It is no accident that the great men of history have sought out Freemasonry - for we recruit no one, and accept only men of hig moral character who seek the company of other like-minded men. The fraternity provides its members with opportunities to become involved in the operaiton of the fraternity, as well as in their own communities.
A cornerstone of the Masonic experience, Masons are well known for their charitable endeavors. Our members take pride in giving to worthy causes - particularly those that benefit children, the sick and the elderly. Masons are also actively involved in substantial volunteer work at the local level, with food pantires, scholarships, and youth programs.
