Making true friends, improving ourselves, having an impact
Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization. It is guided by the enduring belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place. For 300 years, Freemasonry has enhanced and strengthened the character of individual men by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, and the search for truth – within ourselves and the larger world.
Burlingame Lodge’s mission is to engage and inspire good men who believe in a Supreme Being and to live according to the Masonic tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
We meet the first Tuesday of every month at 145 Park Road in Burlingame. As a lodge, we strive to be active in the community and support educational and youth group programs. Burlingame Lodge is a place where men of all races and beliefs gather to share in fellowship, and self-improvement. It’s members come from all walks of life and share a common goal of helping each other become better men. It’s body of knowledge and system of ethics is based on the premise that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, faith, country, and fraternity.
Masonry is a community of men and their families who share similar beliefs and values. The fraternity finds it important to connect with other men of honor, compassion, love, trust, and knowledge, regardless of their race, color, religious beliefs, political views, sexual orientation, physical ability, citizenship, or national origin. We are friends and brothers, and are connected through this vital and uplifting organization of moral men.
Our continuing pursuit of truth, knowledge, ethics, and leadership skills makes us better men and brings more meaning to our lives. Learning the tenets of Freemasonry, paired with being an active part of our community, gives us the opportunity to develop leadership and organizational skills, and builds self-discipline through commitment and self-confidence.
As a member of the Freemasons, the Grand Lodge of California, and Burlingame Lodge No. 400, we are a part of a worldwide organization that values tradition, history, and timeless wisdom. The traditions and core values of our fraternity are meaningful today and will endure for centuries to come because of our direct impact in our community, through our charities, and on a personal level.
