The website and course offerings will continue to evolve and expand to provide additional learning opportunities for members. If you haven't checked it out yet, visit www.pamasons.net/education. Here are some of the comments we have received so far:
"First and foremost, I love the pages! More exactly, I love the idea behind them. They are introductory in nature in that they only take a part of an evening, and that's a lot of what makes them appealing. ... this overview is just right. There is the challenge of finding the right answer ... without fear of failing, and still learning a lot in the process.
"The fact that there are many facets to be explored in Freemasonry is part of the appeal of these pages ...
"These introductions to topics can be helpful to the old and new Mason.
"They're like reading popular science rather than digging into a Scientific American article. Sometimes you want one, sometimes the other."
"I would like to thank everyone who has made the online education possible. It is a wonderful educational outlet! I am unfortunately in a position physically that I cannot get out and about much and am very thankful that the online education has provided a way for me to continue my Masonic journey."
"This website is an excellent source for Masonic knowledge! All three courses available provide an applicable and practical means for expanding an understanding of our Masonic principles. ... When you finish the assessments, you have the opportunity to review the tests. It also gives you the opportunity to retake the exam. ... I want to thank you and the Grand Lodge for setting up this program. I firmly believe that it will greatly benefit the fraternity."
"It's a great way to continue learning. I took the three options offered online (history, law and degrees), and look forward to additional educational opportunities."
"I wanted to thank everyone who has been involved in setting up the Masonic Education website. What a great idea! Your time and efforts are much appreciated. It's a great learning tool for young Masons such as me... I'm sure it provides a good refresher for the more skilled and experienced among our ranks, as well."
"I truly believe that Masonic Education will help the new and old Master Mason find the heart of Freemasonry."
