The Fraternal Order of Knights of Pythias is a great International Fraternity which was founded in Washington, D.C. on February 19, 1864 by Justus Henry Rathbone.  Local lodges are governed by State Grand Lodges which, in turn, are governed by The Supreme Lodge, Knights of Pythias.  

The primary object of any fraternal organization is to promote friendship among men and to provide for the general welfare of its membership.  The outstanding principles of the Knights of Pythias are Friendship, Charity, and Benevolence as exemplified in the story of Damon and Pythias.  Damon and Pythias were students of the father of Philosophy, Pythagoras.  

In our fraternal order's ritualistic work, every sentence has a meaning and every paragraph a beautiful and inspiring lesson.  The Pythian Order does not seek to shape any person's belief, but is the practical application of spiritual and charitable principles of everyday life.  We have a heritage of which we are proud and our precepts and teachings lead human beings to higher ideals of life.  We invite like minded-people of all races and creeds, who are of good character, to join us in making these ideals a reality in modern living.

A Special Congratulations to Supreme Chancellor  and Supreme Chief 
from the Knights and Sisters of the Great State of Nevada
2022 Grand Chancellor, Marty Gold and his Officers

KOP Nevada installs next Grand Chancellor

      Marty Gold, a 40-year veteran of the Knights of Pythias has been installed as grand chancellor for Nevada at the KOP convention in Reno.  
      “It’s my honor and privilege to serve as grand chancellor for the 2021/2022 term of the Grand Lodge of Nevada. For me, it’s the ultimate step in my 40-year participation in the Knights of Pythias, beginning in 1981 at the Benjamin N. Cardozo lodge in Fair Lawn, N.J., where I rose to chancellor commander,” said Marty Gold, shortly after being installed. 
      He noted that membership in our Pythian Order has fallen drastically thru the years in Nevada and elsewhere. “It’s critical that we recruit new members, make meetings worthwhile for new members with interesting speakers, support more charities and pursue different activities. And, once we bring in new members, the task is retention.” 
      Increasing membership could be challenging but not impossible. Let’s make it happen, said the new grand chancellor.
