“Freemasonry embraces the highest moral laws and will bear the test of any system of ethics or philosophy ever promulgated for the uplift of man.”

~General Douglas MacArthur


Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world. The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts was established in 1733 and is the third oldest Grand Lodge in the world. Today, there are over 50,000 Freemasons in Massachusetts that meet in more than 275 individual Lodges in cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth. Grand Master Roger Willaim Pageaur  is the latest in a succession of distinguished Massachusetts Freemasons to hold that office. Previous Grand Masters include Revolutionary War patriots Paul Revere and General Joseph Warren.

Freemasons in North America contribute more than $2,000,000 each day to charity. Freemasons operate the Shriners Burns Hospital in Boston where more than 750 severely burned children are admitted each year and treated at no charge. Some 3,700 children are treated each year in the hospital’s clinic, again at no charge. Freemasons also operate the Shriners Orthopedic Hospital in Springfield where children are treated at no charge. Freemasons are responsible for collecting more than 80% of the blood collected by the Red Cross in Massachusetts—more than 20,000 pints annually. They also provide more than $200,000 in scholarship assistance annually.
