Welcome to Groveland Masonic Lodge 190:

The Masonic fraternity is the oldest, largest and most widely known fraternal organization in the world. Our members come from virtually every occupation and profession known to mankind. Our members come from all stations in life, yet in the Lodge they are all treated as equals. We meet on an equal basis as friends, regardless of income, political ideology, or religious belief. All of us are patriotic citizens believing in a Supreme Being.

Masons do not recruit new members. Interested individuals must ask a Mason for a petition for membership. When a man petitions a Lodge it is entirely of his own free will and accord. Yet, his petition is accepted with the understanding that he has a belief in a Supreme Being, is of good moral character, and will be accepted only by unanimous ballot of the Lodge members present when the vote is taken.

If as a new candidate you seek a more meaningful quality of life, the spirit of charity and the good fellowship which flows from it, then Freemasonry has much to offer to you. On the other hand, if the nature of manís existence and your obligations to God, your family, and yourself are of little interest to you then you will gain very little benefit from the teachings of the Craft.

We want you to know what we believe, how we act, and what we do. Then, should you become a Mason, you should be proud to be our Brother and to participate in our work. Only those individuals who desire membership because of their favorable impression of us should ask for a petition.

Freemasonry is characterized as a fraternity devoted to high ideals and admirable benevolence. Community service and charitable work are principal Masonic activities. Masonry was founded on the principles of brotherly love, relief, and truth, and takes seriously its responsibility to help others. Masonic organizations support a wide range of charities, some of which are statewide and others which are national foundations. These include areas of research, teaching, and treatment or rehabilitation services for children with learning or speech disorders, cancer, visual problems, dental needs, orthopedic needs, and burn patients.

Groveland Masonic Lodge 190 meets on the second and fourth Thursday of every month. Dinner starts at 6:30 PM. If you would like to stop by our Lodge, join us for dinner, and meet some of our members, please free to do so. Rest assured you will always be welcome!
