Jenks is a vibrant and active Lodge consisting of a diverse group of individuals who have joined together to form friendships and spend time working to better themselves and the community in which we live.  The Lodge is strengthened and supported by the families and friends of our members who join us at many of our events


One of the main tenets of Freemasonry is charity, the Brothers of Jenks Lodge are currently working to help support the Providence Food Bank, Rhode Island Special Olympics, and the Walk Out of Darkness Suicide Prevention event.  The lodge also has a scholarship fund to help its members and their family pursue higher education.

December 2022 Incoming Master’s Message

Greetings Brethren, I can’t believe the New year is almost upon us.  It feels like 2022 just started and here we are in December.  This year was filled with great events, charitable work, fraternity and the raising of six new brothers to Master Masons.  As I look forward into next year, as the current “Wishful Master” and hopefully Worshipful Master, I hope to expand on each of these.   The planned masonic year for 2023 will be focused on Unity.  My goal is to increase...

November 2022 Master’s Message

This year has just flown by, it feels like I was just installed yesterday and I’m already writing my last Masters Message for the year.   It’s been a fun year; we have hosted the District Deputy and the Grand Master, we have put on a Speakeasy and two Smokers, opened our Lodge in three different states, (Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Pensilvania), hosted some spectacular speakers at our meetings, and raised six new Master Masons!  And through it all had fun doing it! Novembers...

October 2022 Master’s Message

Greetings Brethren, The year seems to be just flying by.  It is already November and Jenks just finished raising all six of its candidates to the sublime degree of Master Mason.  I could not be prouder of the officers of this lodge who devoted so much of their time to learn and perform the degrees this year.  The degrees (both in Rhode Island and in New Hampshire) went well and our candidates are now on the last leg of their journey to becoming full members of Jenks in December...
