What is Masonry?

Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization. It is guided by the enduring belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place. For 300 years, Freemasonry has enhanced and strengthened the character of individual men by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, and the search for truth – within ourselves and the larger world. The traditions and core values of our fraternity are meaningful today and will endure for centuries to come.

Our Lodge

We are a vibrant and diverse group of men coming together to celebrate the shared vision of an oasis of peace, harmony, and fraternal affection.

 

We value our role within an organization which is recognized as being a positive and relevant force of influence in the world.

 

We strive to maintain an environment where all members can go and expect to meet other positive, like-minded men who value family, friendship, spiritual development, self-improvement, and traditional values.

 

We look to emulate the ideals of the Fraternity; and we accomplish this by working to ensure that the deeper implications of Masonic wisdom are explored and cultivated within each member through solemn and sincere degrees coupled with a contemplative approach to education.

 

We always seek to foster friendship, personal growth, and individual success through both formal and informal mentoring, and friendly concern.

Rewards of Being a Freemason

Education

Like secular education, Freemasonry transmits knowledge for the purpose of self improvement and a connection to something higher. It teaches through initiatory rites, deep symbolism, and spiritual tradition. While not a religion, its teachings are in harmony with the essential lessons of the world’s religions and have the effect of enhancing the experience of one’s personal spirituality. The capable student will translate these lessons and experiences into his daily life and actions.

Growth

Our continuing pursuit of truth, knowledge, ethics, and leadership skills makes us better men and brings more meaning to our lives. Learning the tenets of Freemasonry, paired with being an active part of our community, gives us the opportunity to develop leadership and organizational skills, and builds self-discipline through commitment and self-confidence.

Friendship

Masonry is a community of men and their families who share similar beliefs and values. The fraternity finds it important to connect with other men of honor, compassion, love, trust, and knowledge, regardless of their race, color, religious beliefs, political views, sexual orientation, physical ability, citizenship, or national origin. We are friends and brothers, and are connected through this vital and uplifting organization of moral men.

Join Us

We are a  universal fraternity of like-minded brothers becoming better men through esoteric knowledge for the purpose of serving our families and community.

 

Membership is open to men 18 and older who meet the qualifications and standards of character and intention, and who believe in a Supreme Being.  Men of all ethnic and religious backgrounds are welcome.

 

One of Freemasonry’s customs is not to solicit members – men must seek membership on their own initiative. Anyone is welcome to request information about the fraternity.

“We Take Good Lodges and Make Them Better”: A Master’s Manifesto

There is an implication that a lodge, being made up of masons who are “good, and becoming better” has by extension the same duty- to be good, and to work to be better. So how can we each contribute to the improvement of the lodge as a whole? That is the focus of this manifesto.

Memorable Moments

At Orange Grove Lodge No. 293 in Southern California, fraternity, and family are deeply intertwined with Freemasonry. Learn more about what inspires these brothers and their fun-filled Masonic experience – from luaus to support for California public schools.

Welcome Grand Master Wright!

Last Sunday, October 21, Most Worshipful Brother Stuart A. Wright was installed as grand master of Masons in California. We look forward to a year of growth and prosperity under his leadership, inspired by his theme: “Freemasonry… the difference is you.”

Commemorating a Masonic Monument

Earlier this summer, Grand Master Galloway joined the Masons of King David’s Lodge No. 209 for a ceremonial resealing of the Dorn Pyramid, a 23-foot tall granite mausoleum originally constructed in 1905. Robert Sachs, master of King David’s Lodge, shares the history and rumors of the Dorn Pyramid.

Masonic Formation: From the Quarry to the Heavens

Masonry professes to “make good men better”. This implies that a good man is the only kind that we should allow through our doors; but even then he must realize that he can become better still- if he will make himself a vessel for the teachings and experiences that “make a mason”.

Initiation in Freemasonry

So what’s all this “initiation” stuff about, anyway?

Initiation is not a word one often hears in everyday conversation. Other than a certain gym which calls the first installment of their monthly dues an “initiation fee”, it’s just not used very much. So just what does it refer to and why are Freemasons always using it?…
