"The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it. It cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted. It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity. Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone." - Dr. Joseph Fort Newton
Kendall Lodge and Masonry
Chartered in 1905, Kendall Lodge has been a part of Kendall County and the city of Boerne for over 110 years. A look at our past and present membership rolls reveals some of the oldest families and most respected names in Kendall County history. Masons seek to improve themselves through enlightenment; to take good men and help them to become better men. Thought to have originated with the stonemasons of the Middle Ages who built the great cathedrals and castles of Europe and the British Isles, Freemasonry has slowly transitioned from an operative guild where the trade (and trade secrets) of the stonemason's craft were taught, to a more speculative fraternity where the tools of ancient stonemasonry are used as symbolic reminders to live a moral and virtuous life.
