“…we Masons are among the fortunate ones who are taught to meet together with others of opposing or competitive ideas and yet respect each other as Brothers.” – author unknown
By harnessing the desire of many men to do good works, Freemasons help others through their charitable endeavors, both in the local community, within the Commonwealth, and on a national scale.
The Masonic system of symbols and education has influenced leaders, philosophers, and artists for nearly three centuries. Through the application of timeless principles, Freemasonry enables every Brother to learn and grow.
Whether you attend your Lodge regularly, choose to get involved in the greater Masonic fraternity, or quietly enjoy the benefits of your membership, Freemasonry can accommodate you at all stages of life.
The bonds of brotherhood run deep in Freemasonry. The experience of membership creates friends for life through mentoring and social interaction.
Freemasons are members of a worldwide brotherhood, spanning language, class, and continent. Wherever a Freemason goes, he’ll find a Brother.
Our fraternity claims no religious or political creeds. Our members come from a diverse background of faiths, traditions, and life experiences, providing a safe atmosphere for the sharing of ideas and building of relationships.
Pennsylvania Freemasonry wants to grow, and we need you to help! Utilizing the tools provided by our leaders, you can help the Fraternity prosper in the Commonwealth.
Brother Dietz brings a world of experience, both in secular and fraternal life, to the office of Grand Master. Learn more about him and your other Grand Lodge leaders.
Celebrating Our Past, Planning Our Future
Pennsylvania Masons have their roots in the founding of America. Pennsylvania has long been home to Brothers, whether it be the halls of Philadelphia, the timber ranges of northern PA, or the captains of industry in Pittsburgh. Since 1730, the fraternity has bound together men from all walks of life.
Our future is even more exciting! By educating our current members in the values and symbolism taught in our Lodges, Freemasonry provides mentoring and guidance to the next generation of leaders and innovators.
“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”
Bro. Booker T. Washington
Supporting worthy endeavors in our local communities provides a means for Pennsylvania Masons across the Commonwealth to help others in a meaningful way which they can witness and experience every day.
