Welcome to the New Braunfels Masonic Center, home to the New Braunfels Lodge #1109 and the Prairie Lea Lodge #114 — each with regular meeting times.
The center also hosts members of the Masonic-related organizations, including Order of the Eastern Star Chapter #771, DeMolay International for young men, and the New Braunfels Rainbow Girls #277 and Bluebonnet Pledge #31 for young women.
Welcome to New Braunfels Masonic Lodge #1109 of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Texas. I am Darrell Svatek, Worshipful Master of the lodge which has been serving New Braunfels for 105 years.
Our membership over the years has included many distinguished men from the community including judges, state legislators, educators, law enforcement and many well-known businessmen throughout the community. Come visit and I’m sure you’d recognize many of the photos and names hanging on our walls.
Our primary goal is to make good men better and provide the guidance necessary to ensure that we all practice Faith, Hope and Charity.
The lodge’s philanthropic activities include but are not limited to providing scholarships to graduating seniors and stipends to local teachers. We provide dental kits to area children as part of our Fantastic Teeth Program and we support the local foodbank with donations.
We consider our lodge building to be a Masonic Center because within our walls we host the Order of the Eastern Star Chapter #771, the International Order of Rainbow for Girls Assembly #277, the Bluebonnet pledge group, the Stephen F. Austin Chapter of the Order of the DeMolay, and Prairie Lea Daylight Lodge #114.
If you have an interest in becoming a Mason or are simply curious about who and what we are, I encourage you to come by and visit with us. We would be happy to and frankly we really enjoy talking to people about masonry. Explore our website and Facebook page for information regarding meeting times and activities. We look forward to seeing you.
Remember, to be one you must ask one.
