Masonry is the world's first and largest fraternal organization, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Through our culture of philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our brothers, our families, our communities, and our future.
The mission of the Masons of California, to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others, is carried out through Masonic principles and tradition of Brotherly love, Relief and Truth.
One of the “mysteries” of Masonry is the term we have for our lodges. They are called “blue lodges” – but why?
