Naval Lodge No. 4 Invites You a Thanksgiving Moment of Silence

  • Washington Monument (map)

We invite all Brethren, family, friends, and guests to join us for a 2 minute and 26 second moment of silence around the Washington Monument at sunrise (7:02am) on Thanksgiving morning. This moment of silence is to thank the Grand Architect for what we have and this country.

This commemorates the 226th anniversary of Brother George Washington taking his oath of office. In a 1789 proclamation, Brother Washington called on the people of the United States to acknowledge God for affording them "an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness" by observing a day of thanksgiving. Devoting a day to "public thanksgiving and prayer," as Washington called it, became a yearly tradition in many communities.

We will meet at the Washington Monument at 7:00am. DC Grand Lodge has authorized all masons to wear their Masonic dress and regalia.
