Together we make a profound difference


A man who strives to improve himself can also improve his community and the world at large. This is the mission of the Masons of California. Through Masonic principles and tradition, we foster personal growth and improve the lives of others.


Masonry in California is a relevant and respected organization - both inside and outside of the fraternity. We make a profound difference in the lives of our members and in California communities. We are engaged in the worldwide principles and fellowship of Freemasonry.


Our mission is guided by the enduring and relevant principles of our fraternity:

  • Brotherly love. We value respect, freedom, kindness, tolerance, and our differences - religious, ethnic, cultural, social, generational, and educational - and strive for harmony in our individual lives, in our lodges, and in the global community.
  • Relief. We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.
  • Truth. We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics - honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.
