We Enhance Lives

Growing as Individuals

Freemasonry’s mission is: “We Enhance Lives”. The oldest and largest goodwill fraternity globally, Masonry teaches that each man has a duty to make life better, not just for himself, but for everyone. Whether that means helping to clean up the environment, volunteering on civic projects, or helping a child learn how to read – Masons make a difference every day.

Most importantly as a member, Masons are presented with the opportunity to grow as individuals, are provided with the tools to make a difference, and are challenged to leave the world a better place.

Making a Statewide Impact

The Michigan Masons believe that every person can make a difference and impact the lives of others. From the programs and scholarships in place to the services our local Lodges provide, we strive to build upon and strengthen our communities in positive, meaningful ways.

Freemasons meet regularly at their established Lodge (the local organization of Freemasonry) for the transaction of business, fellowship, and the discussion of matters of Masonic interest. Since Masons are pledged to fulfill the demands of good citizenship, each Lodge works to maintain a vibrant, respected, and active role in community life. Lodges also work to forge alliances within the community designed to help the general public while developing the character of Masons.

Leading and Inspiring Men

Masonry is always ready to welcome good men into the fraternity. A man who becomes a Michigan Mason can expect to find the opportunity to learn and to lead; to be inspired and entertained; to be challenged and respected; to be involved with his family, his Brothers and his community; and be proud to be a member of an organization committed to making a difference.

Masonry is a fraternity, so all members are male, and must be at least 18 years of age and maintain a Michigan residency for one year (six months for those in the military). You should believe in helping others, be willing to respect others, and be open to growing and developing as a human being. Learn more about the membership process.
