Dare To Rise
Masonic Lodge #851 A.F & A.M.
From the middle ages to the twentieth and twenty-first century work of Dallas community leaders, Freemasonry has enjoyed a rich historical evolution.
We are dedicated to the betterment of our members and the Dallas community. We seek to build fraternal bonds through a rich Masonic tradition of fellowship and conviviality.
Freemasonry provides a man the tools and maxims for leading an upright life; a means of rising to greatness. Greatness not defined by material, but by unlocking one’s inner potential.
Committed to charity and dedicated to service, Knox Corinthian seeks to exemplify the lessons of the Freemasonry for the betterment of the Dallas community and beyond.
What Makes A Mason, A Mason?
Freemasonry is the world’s oldest fraternal society with its roots shrouded in the mists of antiquity. Since time immemorial our organizations have used the tools and teachings of our forebearers to guide its members towards self-improvement and consequently to the betterment of our respective societies. Freemasonry believes that a man’s greatness can be measured by his deeds and it is through his deeds that he can improve the world.
Thus, Knox-Corinthian Lodge prides itself on being an active member and
a leader of the Dallas masonic community. Our lodge is made up predominantly of conscience and charity driven professionals who work in tandem to improve our community. We actively charge our members to rise and lead. The records of the past leaders of freemasonry are filled with eminent men of their time such as the founders of this country. Our lodge is dedicated to creating an environment which will foster the leaders of tomorrow.
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children
Knox Corinthian Lodge has a special relationship with the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. We often refer to ourselves as “the Hospital Lodge,” counting a majority of the clinical and administrative leadership team among our members.
The Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children opened its doors to the children of Texas in 1921. One of Dallas’ first orthopedic surgeons, W. B. Carrell, M.D., was approached by a group of Texas Masons who recognized a growing need to provide superior medical care to children suffering from polio regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
With the introduction of the Salk and Sabin vaccines in the mid-1950s, which virtually eradicated polio in the Western Hemisphere, the hospital broadened its focus to other orthopedic conditions. Helped by supporters throughout the country, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has emerged as one of the nation’s leading medical centers for the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions and sports injuries and fractures, as well as certain related arthritic and neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
