Concordanat Bodies on Staten Island


Concordant Bodies

Masons enjoy the benefit of having many Concordant bodies that they can join dependant upon their individual desires. Through the links below, you will be able to find a general outline of the different bodies to which Masons belong as well as their officers and meeting times and places. Please take some time to look at each one of them. The basic requirement to join one of these organizations is that you must join one of the Masonic Lodges first and keep your membership in that Lodge active. In the case of Eastern Star and De Molay, a Mason acts as a sponsor. Perhaps you will find some of these organizations to your liking.
