Inner Quest Lodge #456 was
formed by a group of Master Masons with a common desire to
experience and to study the precepts of Freemasonry
in a more traditional setting.
Letters of Dispensation were granted by the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of
Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Kansas
in 2002 and Inner Quest Lodge #456 was formally Chartered in 2005.
Inner Quest Lodge is dedicated to
preserving the "Old School" traditions of
Freemasonry. Some visiting Brothers have been surprised to learn that
everything they see or experience in Inner Quest Lodge can be performed
at any Lodge, should that Lodge wish to do so. We do nothing
outside the accepted practices of a well-governed Lodge of Kansas Masons
and of those of Ancient Craft Masonry. We make no innovations
to the Accepted Works of Freemasonry.
Visitors should be
open to some differences:
All Inner Quest members wear a plain white
apron in the Lodge. All Brothers are our equals, and no Brother is
venerated above another by title, regalia or special adornment.
Inner Quest Lodge is conducted in an intimate
candlelight setting where incense is burned. Silence is
observed unless addressing the Lodge
An Inner Quest member is expected to attend each Stated and Special
Communication of the Lodge, if within the length of his cable tow.
perform a formal procession of the Lodge Officers prior
to opening and after
closing the Lodge. Visitors may be seated on the sidelines.
We utilize music and
pause at a period of meditation. Brethren present should
use this appropriately to experience the proper mindset.
The "business" portion of our Stated Communication is
very brief. A greater
emphasis is placed on fellowship and the presentation of
Masonic education and enlightenment.
