Shriners of North America is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth. Shriners are also Master Masons, meaning they belong to the Masonic fraternity.
When you become a Shriner you become part of a brotherhood of men committed to family, engaged in ongoing personal growth, and dedicated to providing care for children in need. As a Shriner, you build bonds that can last a lifetime.
Becoming a Shriner is easier than you might think and its rewards can be far more than you expect.

The post of Potentate “is the highest honour your fellow Nobles can bestow on a Noble.”
I am therefore extremely humbled to have been chosen to lead our Temple for 2015.
First Lady Ginette and I pledge to work hard in this the greatest Fraternity in the world as we continue to support our Hospitals and our Shrine Children. We will continue to focus on Unity and Membership Growth.
My request is that every Noble Commit to the Cause.
Truly care and connect deeply to and commit to being involved throughout the year. I don't mean just throw money at a campaign. I mean really roll up those sleeves and get into something you are passionate about on the ground level. No matter what it is within our fraternity, resolve to get involved, stay involved, and truly make a positive difference.
Membership recruitment will continue to be a top priority for 2015. I have appointed Assistant Rabban Noble Blaine Brooks and Boss Clown Noble Will Johnston as co-chairs of the Membership Committee. They will be visiting each Club and giving presentations. You are encouraged to arrange for a “Blue Lodge Buddy Night.” The Membership committee will be there to help. As Shriners and leaders, it is our responsibility to guide others so that they achieve the same emotion, pride and fellowship we experience as Shriners. When we do, our organization will prosper.
Sincere thanks to Ill. Sir L. Barry Mabey for a tremendous 2014. Under his stewardship we were able to purchase our own building. The new Luxor Shrine Center located at 14 McLaughlin Crescent in Saint John will serve us well and is there for use by all Shriners. We had a profitable year and Lady Karen once again lead the Harley Draw presenting Luxor with a $27,000 cheque.
The Installation ceremony and Potentate’s Banquet was very well attended and was enjoyed by all. Many thanks to the members of the Ceremonial Cast and all the Nobles who pitched in to make both events the success it was.
Please check this website frequently for information throughout the year. Our next event is the annual Shrine/Mason Curling Funspiel in Moncton on Saturday February 21st. Registration can be found under the News & Events tab.
The NSA Mid-Winter Meeting is in Lewiston/Auburn Maine, March 12-15. As Luxor will be hosting the NSA in 2016, it would be a good idea to have as many Nobles attend to learn what needs to be done. Registration form is available from Shelley at the Shrine office.
June 5 – 6 is our 2015 Spring Ceremonial & Stated Meeting which is being held in Moncton. More information for this fun weekend will be forthcoming soon.
Keep up the good work Nobles. Our Hospitals and children need us.
