The Michael T. Francios Research Lodge No. 1775

 

Purpose

The Michael T. Francios Research Lodge No. 1775 is a unique occurrence in the history of the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the Virgin Islands, as this is the first Lodge constituted within our Jurisdiction solely for the purpose of Masonic study.

Although warranted by the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the Virgin Islands,this Lodge will work differently than any other Lodge within the jurisdiction. This Lodge's membership is divided into three categories: Full Member, Associate Member, and Fellow.

Full membership is extended to those who are members in good standing of a symbolic Lodge, constituted under the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the Virgin Islands. Associate membership is extended to Brethren who are members of a Lodge outside our Jurisdiction, which is recognized by the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the Virgin Islands. Fellows are distinguished members, elected for their outstanding scholarship.

The Michael T. Francios Research Lodge No. 1775 will hold only two Stated Meetings each year, with Special Meetings to be held at the discretion of the Worshipful Master. Meetings will be held at various Masonic sites throughout the Virgin Islands. No Degrees will be conferred.  The elected Worshipful will not become a voting member of the Grand Lodge.
