Masonic Talks – Masonic Charity

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24, 7:30PM (ET)

Freemasons take a series of obligations that appeal to charity, relief, and support. We obligate ourselves, willfully, to care for our fellow Brothers, their families, but also to the world around us. RW Anthony Prizzia and Bro Todd Paterek share how Freemasons in New York are making a difference in our communities every day.

Masonic Talks – The Craft of Self Actualization

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 7:30PM (ET)

V∴W∴ Michael LaRocco will challenge us to perceive how the esoteric and exoteric symbols of Freemasonry lead us to Self Actualization. In addition, to how the uniqueness of our toleration for religion, tradition, and culture aids us in dissolving our prejudices with group and self-identification which removes the obstacles to enlightenment.

Craftsmen Online Podcast on iTunes
Our goal is to provide a program that serves as a companion to today’s busy Freemason looking for Masonic Education, life stories told by Brothers across the Craft, and intriguing conversations on Masonic themes and topics. We hope that this is the half-hour of entertainment and enlightenment that you look forward to, every week.
