Knox Corinthian Lodge #851

Knox Corinthian Lodge is dedicated to the betterment of its members and society at large. We commonly think of ourselves as “the Hospital Lodge” given our close relationship to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. We count numerous community and business leaders among our ranks, including a majority of the clinical and administrative leadership of the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital of Children. We consider ourselves a diverse group committed to self-improvement, support for our fellow man, and observance of the lessons of our Craft. Beyond the doors of our lodge, we seek to build fraternal bonds through a rich tradition of fellowship and conviviality.



Knox Corinthian Lodge meets in downtown Dallas, Texas, in the Green Room of the Dallas Scottish Rite Cathedral. Following our meetings, whether stated or called, we often gather to enjoy fellowship over a meal. Members, masonic visitors, and candidates are welcome to attend our public social events and quarterly luncheons. As a lodge firmly committed to charity, we are involved with a number of initiatives dedicated to the improvement of our community and the lives of others. We encourage all to participate in the spirit of service and giving.

Master’s Message

Knox-Corinthian Lodge #851 – Master’s Message

Welcome to Knox-Corinthian Lodge’s website and thank you for your interest in one of Dallas’ premier Lodges.

Our Masonic roots date back to 1901 but our focus is on being relevant today and in the future.

Knox-Corinthian is one of the fastest growing Lodges in the Dallas area. Perhaps our most appealing characteristic is our inclusiveness and diversity:

  • our members include men from different cultures, countries, races and religions
  • our members range in age from 18 to 81+, spanning all generations
  • our members are students, working professionals and retirees
  • our members who are working professionals represent a wide range of industries

Most importantly, what connects us all is the common desire for self-improvement. Freemasonry offers us an opportunity to focus on building life skills and life-long relationships. In Freemasonry and at Knox-Corinthian, you will meet men who value a way of life built on virtuous living, moral integrity and personal responsibility. Freemasonry helps make us better men, better husbands, better fathers and better members of our communities.

We have a legacy of community service, in part due to our close affiliation with Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. We are often referred to as the “hospital lodge;” among our 300+ members are 30+ hospital staff.   Our relationship with Scottish Rite Hospital provides many opportunities to practice the first lesson in Masonry – a commitment to charity.

Knox-Corinthian meets on the third Tuesday of each month in the Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Dallas. We are a “Daylight Lodge.” The monthly meeting and lunch begin at noon and we are adjourned by 1:00 pm.
