Most Worshipful Brother John Ferguson was installed as the 158th Grand Master of Masons of Nebraska on Saturday, February 3, 2024.

Grand Master’s Address

I’m honored to be the 158th Grand Master of Masons of Nebraska. Masonry continues to serve a vital role in the development of men in our communities. Our ritual work establishes a foundation that can be continually built upon throughout a man’s life.

If you have visited this site wondering who we are, let me give you some insight. Masonry is the worlds oldest fraternal organization and we hold ourselves accountable to a strict code of ethics. We are men who focus on the task of bettering ourselves and each other. Dedicated Brothers continue to set a good example for our fraternity by living by the values they learned in our traditional degree ceremonies, which we commonly refer to as our ritual work.

As we progress through the degrees, the lessons of Masonry aid in the development of many meaningful relationships. We build close relationships with our fellow lodge brothers through continued mentorship and social interaction. Masons are actively involved in society, further building relationships with each other and within our communities. Together, Nebraska Masons raise thousands of dollars for local charities and dedicate countless volunteer hours.

Local lodges can be found in many communities across the state from Scottsbluff to Omaha and almost everywhere in between. We continue to seek out established, good men for our fraternity, and we pledge to do our part to help you grow. If you’re interested in joining us, I invite you to follow this link and take the first step on your Masonic journey!
