The Degrees in the Blue Lodge
In Freemasonry, a Blue Lodge is a lodge that works and teaches the first three Masonic degrees. The first three degrees, in order are:
1. Entered Apprentice - this is an initiate or new member. This is the degree that makes one a Freemason.
2. Fellow Craft - this is an intermediate degree and is the designation for those learning the rituals and life principles of Freemasonry.
3. Master Mason - this is the third and final degree of Masonry and is required to participate in most aspects of Lodge life and practice.
Whether you've reached one of these degrees or you know someone who has, Blue Lodge rings make great gifts and also serve as excellent reminders to the wearer of their affiliation with the Freemasons.
The name itself derives from the colors prevalent in Craft Lodges in English and Irish Freemasonry. Craft Lodges also teach and practice the first three degrees and are simply called Blue Lodges in the United States.
