The Moose Legion is known as the Degree of Service. Every Moose member that meets the minimum requirements is eligible to apply for membership into the Moose Legion.

Qualifications for Moose Legion membership:

  • Must be an active Lodge member and
  • Must have completed six (6) months of Lodge membership
    OR
  • Must be an active Lodge member and
  • Must have sponsored at least one (1) Lodge application that has been accepted through LCL.Net (if less than six months of membership in the lodge)
    OR
  • Must be an active Lodge member and
  • Must be a former Moose Legionnaire

The purpose of this degree is to band together the loyal and devoted Moose members who desire to make further contributions to the humanitarian objectives of our Order while providing fun and entertaining activities for members and their families. Additionally, it serves as the means for building a strong foundation for advancement to the Fellowship and Pilgrim Degrees. The official regalia of a Moose Legionnaire is a maroon blazer featuring the Moose Legion logo, coordinating necktie, white shirt, black trousers and accessories.

 

The Fellowship Degree of Honor is an honorary Degree of the Loyal Order of Moose conferred only upon Moose Legionnaires who are recommended by the Fellows of their Lodge and approved by the Pilgrim Council. The selection process begins during the month of November, which has been designated by the fraternity as Fellowship Degree Honor Month.

 

While it is a time when special activities are scheduled within each Lodge to pay tribute to these dedicated fraternalists, it is also the time when the Fellows of the Lodge gather to review the service of members of the Moose Legion within their Lodge and, providing the Lodge has received a recommendation form, review service records to possibly select a Moose Legionnaire to be recommended for elevation to the Degree of Honor. The recommendation is highly confidential and is never revealed until such time as the recommended Moose Legionnaire is selected and called by the Pilgrim Council and subsequently conferred with the Degree of Honor.

 

The opportunity to serve on the Lodge Fellowship Committee is one of the privileges of being a Fellow. This select group may meet as often as they like to socialize, raise funds for special projects or conduct other business beneficial to the Degree.

 

The official regalia of a Fellow is a French-blue blazer featuring the Fellowship logo, coordinated necktie, white shirt and black trousers. The regalia is worn in its entirety or not at all. The regalia may be worn at any function of the Order and is symbolic of the character and strength that these men provide to the Moose fraternal structure.

 

The Pilgrim Degree of Merit is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a member of the Loyal Order of Moose. This Degree is conferred only in the House of God at Mooseheart, Illinois and comes as a reward for extraordinary service to the Order. All Pilgrims of the Order are sent special recommendation forms annually and may recommend a member of the Order, who has attained the Fellowship Degree of Honor, by submitting this form to the Office of the Director General.

 

Fellows recommended will then have their record of service evaluated for merit. Those attaining the highest level of service will be presented to the Pilgrim Consistory-all living Past Supreme Governors-for their review and possible approval. Once the list has been finalized, the approved candidates receive the call to assemble in the House of God for the conferral. The call remains confidential until the Degree has been conferred.

 

Special Pilgrim Presentations are scheduled in the Lodges of new Pilgrims, or at an association event, after the conferral. This presentation is where the new Pilgrim is officially presented with his regalia and is coordinated with the Regional Manager or a Pilgrim Representative. Family, friends, community leaders, Lodge members, and other Pilgrims of the Order are invited to attend this fraternal tribute.

 

The official regalia of a Pilgrim is a gold blazer featuring the Pilgrim logo, coordinated necktie, white shirt and black trousers. A Pilgrim is also entitled to wear the Pilgrim medallion with gold cord. This regalia and medallion may be worn at any function of the Order and is symbolic of the dedication, commitment and outstanding service that these men have provided to the Moose Fraternity.
