This is the official website for our Lodge and we welcome all who visit here. You will find a great deal of information about this lodge as you search our pages.
While the Grand Lodge of Connecticut was chartered in 1789, we are one of the youngest Masonic Lodges in Connecticut, as we are currently celebrating our 50th anniversary year (2015). We are proud to lay claim to being the only “fifth generation” Lodge in the state. We currently have a membership of about 200 members. While many members are from the Manchester area, we have members throughout Central Connecticut and across a variety of vocations.
We are well known as a “Traveling” Lodge. Each year the Master of the Lodge selects a destination outside the boundaries of our state and a host lodge in that area for a visitation. While there, we portray one of the several degrees of Freemasonry using Connecticut ritual. There are memories that will exist within the walls of our Lodge forever and friendships that will stand just as long. Past visitations include Bermuda, Montreal, Nantucket RI, Philadelphia PA, Washington D.C. and many cities in between.
As are all Masons, we are dedicated to making our communities better places for our neighbors in need. Our charitable contributions include the local Food Pantry, College Scholarships, Masonic Foundation and other worthy causes. We host an Annual Pancake Festival open to the community on Palm Sunday. Our members are also active in the support of the Manchester Brotherhood in Action Breakfast that contributes proceeds to children with life-threatening needs.
We practice the tenets of Friendship, Morality and Brotherly Love that are practiced by Masons everywhere in this Global Fraternity.
