Lodge No. 57

Freemasonry for Women | HFAF

Friendship | Inspiration | Empowerment



The first regular Freemasons lodge for Women in the United States.

America Lodge No. 57 is a fraternal society for women, organized by women, to promote brotherly love, self-knowledge, and charity under the tenets of Universal Freemasonry.

Freemasonry is one of the oldest and largest initiatic societies in the world. It involves transformative work; building wiser, stronger, more beautiful selves for the betterment of society.

The Masonic Lodge is a sacred space for women to pursue their own individual paths of enlightenment; emotional, intellectual and spiritual. Through mindful study and contemplation on the working tools/symbols of architecture, women work towards building a better self, to further enable the building of a better family, community, a better nation, and world!

By finding the light from within, the Freemason commits to always doing their best, to radiate love, kindness and joy into the world.

America Lodge No. 57 admits women of all races and faiths who are believers in a Supreme Being, are aged 18 or over, and of good

moral character.

Members strive to be honest, trustworthy, hardworking and charitable, with a strong focus on family and community. Lodge Members must promise to abide by the laws of the land, and to be good citizens. In addition, Lodge Members are encouraged to donate to charities for the benefit of humanity. The Lodge generally supports causes that benefit the local community, including, but not limited to schools, hospitals, and disaster relief funds.

Our Motto is: Friendship, Inspiration and Empowerment

We are seekers of knowledge, both spiritual and intellectual, We are forward-thinking while preserving the past, We promote wisdom, strength, beauty, compassion, and active citizenship, We respect the powers of nature and nurture peace, joy and love among mankind.

Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth

As women of this generation, it is our duty to carry forward the wisdom of the ages: to bring light to the feminine spirit, to have the moral courage to build a more ethical and just world, to educate, inspire, empower, and shape the future by integrating women more equally into society. The light of Freemasonry for Women is now more important than ever, to bring equilibrium to the scales of life and to enable humanity to live in harmony with the Universe.
