Are tarot cards just a European card game or are they mystic tools for seeing the future? What is their connection to Freemasonry, if any? What is the mystery surrounding them? Bro. Michael M. Hughes is a fiction and non-fiction author and lecturer on the paranormal. He is also a member of the Maryland College of Masonic Rosicrucians. On April 25 he will tell the story of tarot cards and their connection to the Craft. An informal meal will be served at 6:30.
