Our Mission:

To promote a way of life that brings together like-minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences; by teaching the great principle of Brotherly Love, relief and truth.

Our Masonic Trestleboard:

A Masonic Trestleboard is a design board for the Master Workman (Architect) to draw his plans and designs upon to give the workmen an outline of the work to be performed. In today’s terms, we might call it a blueprint. We publish our Trestleboard monthly and this is where you'll find all our Meeting Dates and Special Events.

  • Traveling Gavel
  • January MM Degree
  • Entered Apprentice

    This Degree is intended as an introduction to Masonry.  The candidate is a voluntary applicant for membership into the Lodge. He must come to the door of the Lodge of his own free will with a belief in a Supreme Being.  Here the Candidate is welcomed and receives instruction and light about the Fraternity.  Instruction includes the definition of Entered Apprentice, Operative and Speculative Masons, why Masonry teaches in symbolism, and that the Candidate is a symbol of man living in the world, searching for education and truth.

    When the candidate proves his proficiency in the work of the Entered Apprentice, the Candidate will be ready to be passed to the Fellowcraft Degree or Second Degree.

  • Fellowcraft

    The Second Degree or Fellowcraft Degree is a more advanced search for Masonic light, hence, in Freemasonry the emphasis is on philosophy, intellectual enlightenment and wisdom.  The vows and obligation of the Fellowcraft Degree are more advanced and extensive than the First Degree.

    The pledge to secrecy is strongly re-enforced.  The Candidate is ready to advance to the Degree of Master Mason when he becomes proficient in the lessons of the Fellowcraft Degree.

  • Master Mason

    The whole system of craft Masonry is intended to represent man’s life on earth. The First Degree is representative of youth, a period of learning. The Second Degree is that of manhood or adult life, increased and expanded learning and work. The Third Degree is that of the mature life or age, an increase in knowledge and wisdom. But foremost of all, the Third Degree is emphasizing the immortality of man’s soul and the certainty of the resurrection of his body to eternal life.

    Upon completion of this Third Degree, the Brother is entitled to all the rights and privileges and is obliged to abide by the constitutions, laws and edicts of the Grand Lodge and the By-Laws of his own Lodge. He will then be known as a Master Mason.
