Tabula Rasa's Mission Statement encapsulates the basis for the creation of this Lodge. It is our belief that it is time that Freemasonry returns to its roots of being a "sacred place of learning". By adopting the operating concepts of what has become to be known as a Traditional Observance Lodge and by guiding our efforts with the above mission statement, we believe that the Masonic experience can be enhanced and Masonry can once again become the focal point of a man's quest for enlightenment.
Encourage self development through the study of Masonry
Masonry has long desired to make "good men better". There are many different ways to explain how this is accomplished but surely one of the most important methodologies utilizes concentrated and serious study of Freemasonry. Tabula Rasa Lodge will provide a venue and appropriate reference material for serious study and discussion of the principles of Masonry. Each meeting will feature an educational paper and discussion on a Masonic topic.
Exhibit excellence in Degree work
The Degree ceremonies should be conducted with dignity and passion. The ceremonies and lectures of Masonry are of the utmost importance to setting the new candidate on the proper path and remind the current Mason of the basis of the Craft. We will work to hone our ritual work through consistant practice.
Exhibit excellence in education in order to bring about a deeper understanding of the wisdom of Masonry
The Lodge will offer both the new candidate and the established Master Mason numerous opportunities for education to deepen their understanding of the Craft. For the new candidate, extra material will be offered to be enjoyed between degrees.
Enhance Masonic fellowship and enjoy a quality social experience at regular Festive Boards
The promotion of ture fellowship in a Lodge best exemplifies the meaning of "Brother". We will have a Festive Board meal after formal meetings to discuss Masonic topics and further fellowship.
Provide a distinctive Masonic experience
The membership will be kept small so that everyone can know each other and everyone can be involved. The Festive Board meal allos for further bonding on a social level. The active emphasis on self improvement, education and Ritual excellence. These are a just a few of the qualities that will provide a distinctive Masonic experience.
