Making Good Men Better

Welcome to

Braden Lodge No. 168

Ancient Free and Accepted Masons

What do Masons do?  That is the question we hope to answer for you here.  Like the blind men and the elephant, Masonry can be different things to different people.  Here at Braden we come together from a wide array of backgrounds to find brotherhood in its many forms

On this site you will find our various activities.  There are the stated meetings and degrees in which brothers will find elegance, beauty, and ritual.  We have our social gatherings in which brothers find fellowship. We have discussion groups in which a brother might pursue knowledge and light.  And we have our charitable activities in which we endeavor to make the world around us a better place.  Through structure, support, instruction, and charity, we aim to make it so that all the men who participate in our lodge are better men for the experience.
