Masonic Bodies

Mission Statement

Encourage the Prince Hall Lodges of West Virginia to contribute with customary Masonic liberality to the needs of their community.

Vision Statement

To promote the charitable dimension of Freemasonry which is central to, and inherent in Masonic life and tradition.

Genesis: 1-3

“In the beginning, God created the Heaven’s and the Earth. And the Earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

The Beehive

“The Beehive is an emblem of industry, teaching the practice of virtue to all men. As we came into the world rational and intelligent beings, so should we ever be industrious, never content to be idle, while our fellow creatures are in want, if it is in our power to relieve them.”
As we move forth in Masonry, we should remember our humble beginnings in which God created us to be. Masonry allows for us to be the vanguard of the Lords army. We shall bring in men of Honor and teach them deeper Honor so that they too will stand as Men and Masons. Let that light that was provided in the beginning shine and lead us into the future that has been laid down before us since time immemorial.
The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of West Virginia has been a place of aid and succor for many and shall remain the same. The Beehive must always stay busy in order for the whole to remain a fortress for many to seek shelter. Every one of us has the duty to stay industrious and be that place where all may come.

Honorable Kelvin H. Elmore 32° MW Grand Master.
