Not Just A Man. A Mason.

Now more than ever, the world needs men of honor and integrity. Men that unite and not those who divide. That seek truth and share Brotherly Love with all, no matter their race, religion, gender or creed. Men that live with virtue and character, always striving to be even better.

The world needs more than just men. The world needs Masons.

Grand Master's Message

Welcome to the Grand Lodge of Connecticut Website!

Here you will find information regarding the world’s oldest fraternal organization, Freemasonry. The first Grand Lodge was founded in England in 1717 and quickly spread around the world. The first Lodge in Connecticut was founded in New Haven in 1750 and has been in continuous operation for 272 years!

Freemasonry is an organization of men from all walks of life who have banded together for mutual improvement. We seek not to be better than others, but to help each other grow spiritually, morally, and intellectually, while enjoying outstanding opportunities for fellowship and perform charitable activities. Wherever you travel, you will find Freemasons working in soup kitchens, battered women’s shelters, food banks, and numerous other areas to serve our communities. Our services for seniors through our great Connecticut institution, Masonicare, is a model of eldercare second to none.

Please enjoy our website. If you would like more information regarding Freemasonry, please use the links above to contact us. We would be pleased to hear from you!

BRING YOUR BLUE BOOK! We will read along to go over the open, close and then degree points. We will also go over ways in which your middle chamber lecture can be memorable for the candidate.
