Hello, my info might be wrong, but as far as i know, Prince Hall of Oklahoma is not yet recognised by UGLE nor by any mainstream masonic Grand Lodge. It is only rdcognised by Oklahoma Grand Lodge.

It’s not listed in the 2013-14 yearbook, nor listed amongst the list of recognised Grand Lodges on the UGLE website.

Good Day!

Dear Sir’s,

I’m not a Mason but can i humbly ask permission to post and share that i have read, the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, F.&A.M., Oklahoma (PHA) and the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, A.F.& A.M. of the State of Oklahoma (Mainstream) have a compact. Anyone can search it by google and if you like i can provide the link. Also i read that the mainstream Grand Lodge’s, mostly if not some extend’s recognition to the PHA Grand Lodge’s which their counterpart has already extended mutual recognition. I also want to ask sir’s, for example you are attending some gathering or some meeting in the other lodge then one of the guest is part of the other GL that your GL does not recognized, what will you do? sorry for the sudden question, i don’t know if someone already asked my question.. I’m out of the topic. Sorry.

P.S.
All i have stated above is based oh my own readings and searches.

Thanks and regards,
James

If I find myself in a meeting with a person not considered a Mason by my Jurisdiction I would be obligated to politely leave.

I would like to point out that the information posted is an FYI only; what one chooses to do with it or not to do with it is up to them as a free man and person.

I would say feel free to contact our GL or Conference of Grand Masters if you seek to further enlighten yourself concerning status so as to better ascertain if your information is correct and up to date.

I would also suggest researching the presence of our Jurisdiction overseas to get a better picture of said presence.

I would lastly say that there is a lot of misunderstanding concerning many things, but at the end of the day, where you sit and where you do not sit comes down to the basic principle tenets, landmarks and protocols. Be prudent and cautious always.

Thank you and enjoy.

Thank you for the wise words Worshipful.

There are complex rules regarding visitation. Every lodge secretary in my jurisdiction has access to a book published annually that contains a list of all lodges a member may visit. When travelling, a cautious Mason consults with his secretary before planning a visit.

Thats why I feel PHA Lodges & Mainstream Lodges need to recognize each other in every state. This happen to a Mainstream Brother that I know. He was sitting in lodge in a PHA Lodge, Brothers know all PHA recognize PHA. So he was sitting in Lodge all of sudden a PHA brothers said we have a visitor and the PHA Brother was from a unreconized Jurisdiction and he had to excuse hisself from the meeting.

?? - it’s still not on our website (Jan 2019) so it would seem the compact has yet to be finalized.
