Message From Most Worshipful Evan R. Moody
Grand Master of Masons in Delaware
Welcome to the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons in Delaware.
Thank you for visiting our web site. Masons the world over play an important role in our cities, states and our nation. As Masons, we believe in Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest fraternity. Masonry had its origin in Delaware in 1806 and is now 213 years old. Brother Gunning Bedford, JR was the first Grand Master of Masons in Delaware.
I am thankful to the Masonic Brothers in Delaware for having selected me their 167th Grand Master. My Grand Staff is assembled from Brethren who represent many lodges throughout our jurisdiction and who have been instrumental in my Masonic journey. Some are repeaters while others are first timers serving on a Grand Staff.
My theme this year is, “Proud To Be A Mason”. My aim this year is to get all Masons to show they are also proud to be a Mason by helping to increase our membership and thru retaining our current numbers of active Masons in Delaware. We will be working with appendant and concordant bodies of Masons to achieve our goals and to build the fellowship throughout Delaware so men will see what we are all about and then want to petition to join our organization.
If you are a Mason, we hope you will use this web site to make it a useful tool for learning more about Freemasonry in Delaware and for providing contact information for our Grand Lodge and its programs. Another useful informational guide is our “Delaware Freemason”, a statewide publication for Masons and about Masons which gives unlimited information about what is happening in our jurisdiction and when.
If you are not a Mason, and want to learn more about Freemasonry we hope this web site will give you the necessary information and you will begin your Masonic journey as many others have done.
Please feel free to contact the Grand Lodge of Delaware @ (302) 652-4614 to learn more about our fraternity.
