The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw the peak of Pythian prominence in North American society. More open than Masonic orders, the KoP lodges were places where the "movers and shakers" of the…Continue

Dave, that is rather distressing- I would try the national (Supreme) lodge (link at top of page). They will be able to connect you with whoever the current officers are for your area.

Still haven't back from anyone. Should I email the Grand Lodge again?
Comment by Dave Amata on November 2, 2010 at 10:19am
Thanks, Alex. I didn't find any local info on lodges besides the Grand Lodge in Salt Lake, though I did email them as well.

Hello, Dave! Simply show up at a local meeting- in many lodges, there is an open time for guests prior to a ritual meeting. Someone will be happy to answer your questions, show you around, and provide you with a membership application (I have a sample of one posted on this group somewhere). Welcome to the group, by the way!

I would like more information on the KoP. Apparently, there is a Grand Lodge here in Utah. Do you need a sponsor to apply for membership?

Welcome, Tracy! It's quite good to see you here. Please feel free to add to any of the conversations on this group.

Hello to all brother Knights, and every one else too!
Comment by Alexsander Mausheim on September 30, 2010 at 2:12pm
Jason, try the Supreme Lodge- it is possible that the local contact information is out of date.
Comment by Jason M. on September 30, 2010 at 1:51pm
Well, I emailed my local grand lodge about on our about August 25th for more information or to be contacted, but have not heard a thing. From what I can gather, my local organization doesn't seem to be very big or active...
