150 Year Rededication of the State Capital in Topeka Kansas

Posted on Sunday 20th of March 2016

On March 18th, 2016, official Kansas Mason's Day, as decreed by the Governor, hundreds of Masons from Kansas, all over our country, and even overseas, braved the cold air and came together on the steps of the State Capital building. Our purpose was to rededicate the cornerstone which was laid in 1866, during the construction of the original building.

The cornerstone is the 'well formed, true and trusty' foundation upon which the building is built. It is the mastery of a true craftsman which produces a foundation which can be tested by the square, the level, and plumb. The cornerstone is the symbol of firmness and durability upon which is built a building which will stand the test of time.

And on Friday, the 18th of March, the Masons of the world revisited that cornerstone which is the foundation of the Capital of Kansas, tested that it is square, tested that it is level, and tested that it is plumb, and reaffirmed that the Masonic values and mastery of the craft which formed that cornerstone have remained intact. It was then consecrated with corn (symbol for nourishment and plenty. In this case, local Kansas wheat was used.), wine (symbol of that inward and abiding comfort with which the heart of the man who faithfully performs his part on the great stage of life is to be refreshed.(1) A local Kansas wine was used.), and oil (symbol of prosperity, and happiness, and joy.(1)).

The Masonic Lodge of St. Francis #404 was well represented at the event, as five of our local brothers traveled to be apart of the ceremony.
