Our Mission & Vision
Sicilian Lodge is dedicated to exemplifying the principles of Friendship, Charity, and Benevolence in the Independence area and beyond.
Our Lodge, like the Order itself, rests on the ever-recurring needs of man as a social being.
It has beneath it, therefore, a permanent foundation. Resting on this bottom rock, it has a reason for existing as mighty and lasting as the nature of man himself. It has but to be true to itself , keep steadily to the truth which gave it birth, to take and hold its place among the mankind-building and mankind-helping institutions of all future time. The Order of Knights of Pythias is an organized check on the growing selfishness of our times, and Sicilian Lodge #39 is an organized opportunity for the development of mutual faith and goodwill as a ground for a more real, restful, and beneficial social life for Independence and the surrounding community.
