Our Message to the Public: Welcome!
Palm Springs Lodge 693 is our area's home to the world's largest and oldest fraternity. We are a group of men who, through Freemasonry, enjoy friendship, personal growth, and spirituality without dogmatism.
Who are we? Our Lodge includes Brothers working in law enforcement, building trades, medicine, finance, real estate, media, law, pool maintenance, retail, aviation...even guys enjoying retirement. Every age group is represented in our membership. We have Lodge members in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!
Masons meet "on the level." No matter your social rank, professional status, or the size of your bank account, when Lodge is meeting, we're equals - brought together in a centuries-old tradition of fellowship.
What's Freemasonry all about? It's often said that one of its purposes is "making good men better." True, but there's a lot more to the vast tapestry of our Craft. Learn more here.
Masons do not solicit new members. Interested men must approach of their own initiative. For someone interested in Masonry, 2B1ASK1.
Don't know a Mason? No problem. Lodge 693 and all Masonic Lodges welcome inquiries! Contact us here
