Send not to know for whom the bell tolls,
The bell tolls for thee!


GIG Stewart V. Redfield, Jr., 33°

Welcome to the official website of I. H. Clayborn Consistory No. 363.  Here you will find information about our mission, vision, goals and objectives.

For over 30 years, we have been located in the Valley of Columbia, Maryland practicing Scottish Rite Freemasonry.  We are leaders of men from various walks of life that that have assembled under the common bonds of brotherly love, relief and truth.  As leaders of men, we look to build and uplift our lives in order to better serve the community in which we live.  The poet John Donne once wrote, “No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…each man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind…”  As Scottish Rite Masons, we seek to learn, teach, and practice Scottish Rite Freemasonry to be better men, part of the main and involved in mankind.

Donne continued with, “…therefore, never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”  In other words, if not you, then who?  Eight men thoroughly immersed in the true Masonic spirit are far greater assets than eighty with lukewarm enthusiasm.  If you are a Master Mason in good standing with your lodge, enthusiastic and interested in furthering your masonic knowledge, you are welcomed and encouraged to travel this journey with us.   To God be the Glory!
