Fraternity Lodge No. 54 is a Masonic lodge in Washington, D.C.
As an "affinity lodge", we gather as Master Masons (and make new Masons) who share the common experience of brotherhood in the college or university Greek-letter fraternity tradition.
Most Greek-letter fraternities have at their roots a Masonic influence. Many fraternities were founded by Brother Freemasons. The rituals and ceremonies of these fraternities are often based, to some extent, on those of the Blue Lodge, Royal Arch, Cryptic Council, Knights Templar, or Scottish Rite degrees. Phi Beta Kappa, the first Greek-letter fraternity, names among its founders several Freemasons.
Fraternity Lodge was founded to provide the Brothers of these Greek-Letter fraternities the opportunity to seek further light into the Masonic roots of their college fraternities, and to enjoy a broader fraternity with fellow Master Masons.
The Lodge communicates quarterly, to dispense business, confer the degrees of Freemasonry, and celebrate a traditional Masonic Festive Board.
Fraternity Lodge is a constituent lodge of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the District of Columbia. For further information, please contact our Secretary, Worshipful Brother Benjamin A. Koppenheffer.
