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 Alan Krell and Supreme Chief Nancy Hall
