Brother Nagy Entered into Freemasonry in 2001. Having been Prepared in his heart for many years before Entering, he quickly embraced the Tenants of Freemasonry and engaged in several Lodge support activities while learning what he could about the Craft. Brother John steadily progressed through the Symbolic Degrees, earned his White Lambskin Apron and proceeded to support Lodge Degree activities. Immediately following his initial experiences of the Junior Warden’s chair, he found himself migrating toward providing Music for Lodge Communications and Degrees along with providing continuing Masonic Education as his expressed Masonic passions. His offerings were favorably noticed and because he provided a wide variety of Masonic Education pieces, his Lodge Brothers encouraged him to consolidate his Work into a book that could be shared with Brothers around the world. That effort was eventually named “Building Hiram – Uncommon Catechism for Uncommon Masonic Education – Volume 1.” With its successful creation, publication and distribution, Volumes 2, 3 and 4, quickly followed Volume 1. Those volumes are now collectively referred to as “The Building Series.”
In between his research, writing and publication of these books, John also co-authored another book, “Lifting the Veil – Esoteric Masonic Thought”, a collection of esoteric Masonic writings by Masonic authors from around the world. Additionally, Brother Nagy has published numerous Masonic Education articles that have appeared in “Further Light Magazine”, Lodgeroom International Magazine, The Working Tools Magazine and on his Masonic Web-log, “Building Builders.” He has been interviewed live on several webcasts (Masonic Central, Freemason Information) on his Works. He is currently featured as one of the Intenders on the “Worldwide Exemplification of Freemasonry” project supported by the Grand Lodge of Indiana. That feature is called “The Coaches Coach: Building Builders” and it is based on the research behind his Building Series of books.
Brother John is a North American Freemason who practices Freemasonry within the Jurisdiction of the State of Florida in the South-Eastern United States. He is a perpetual member of Tampa Bay Lodge No. 252 and a lifetime member of the Florida Lodge of Research No. 999. He continues to provide Music to his two Lodges as their Lodge Musician and provides occasional Masonic Education to a select group of other Lodges as time permits. Upon request, Brother Nagy also facilitates Masonic Education Workshops based upon his research and writings.
