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.
Knox-Corinthian Lodge #851 – Master’s Message
Welcome to Knox-Corinthian Lodge. We are proud to be one of the most active and fastest growing lodges in the Dallas area with roots that date back over one hundred and twenty years. Today, Knox-Corinthian offers a dynamic and meaningful masonic experience to our members and community. We continue our established legacy of community service in part due to our close affiliation with the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. We are often referred to as the “hospital lodge,” and can count a significant number of the hospital’s staff and executive leadership among our members.
While the COVID19 pandemic continues, I am privileged to take charge of Knox-Corinthian after the prudent leadership of our previous two masters who guided this lodge through the early days and climax of the pandemic. As a result of their leadership, Knox-Corinthian has emerged from lockdown with its membership intact and continues to play host to our members in addition to an increased number of prospective candidates.
The membership of our lodge includes men from a diverse background of ethnicities, religions, ages, and industries. The bulk of our membership are working professionals who represent a wide range of industries. Our members are men who value a way of life built on moral integrity and personal responsibility. Freemasonry helps make us better men and members of our communities.
Knox-Corinthian holds its stated meetings 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. While our stated meetings are held during the day, our lodge is very active and meets on evenings during the week for various initiatives and functions.
