Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest fraternal organization. As Freemasons we live by an ethical and moral code that distinguishes us and creates an atmosphere where friendship and understanding can grow among men of every religion, race and culture. This is the public website of the Grand Lodge of Rhode Island.

Freemasonry in Rhode Island

"We represent a fraternity which believes in justice and truth and honorable action in your community - Men who are endeavoring to be better citizens [and] to make a great country greater. This is the only institution in the world where we can meet on the level all sorts of people who want to live rightly." ~ Harry S. Truman

Freemasonry helps make good men better by giving them an opportunity to develop their characters and strengthen their communities through participation in the world’s oldest and most philanthropic fraternal organization.
