Welcome to Friendship Masonic Lodge No. 160

A Masonic Lodge in North Portland, Oregon.

A Guiding Light

What is Freemasonry? To many of its members, Freemasonry is a guiding light to those who wish to improve themselves — better fathers, better husbands, brothers, and ultimately, better members of society. Its principles and ceremonies inculcate the importance of introspection and manifestation of personal improvement to the world at large.

It’s also a haven for long-lasting and meaningful friendships among those who might otherwise have remained at a distance.

In short, it’s an organization that fosters fraternity, encourages personal improvement, and provides meaningful experiences.

For the Modern Gentleman

Freemasonry has attracted men from many walks of life; those who not only have a sincere wish to be serviceable to society, but also to be a cut above the typical man and be part of the times. It is a haven for the modern gentleman to learn about the ways of the world.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in pursuing, then we invite you to learn more.

From the Secretary

By | General News | No Comments

Two brothers received their Service Award for 60 years service to Masonry.

Douglas H. Parrott made a Master Mason on August 1, 1956.

William A. Anderton made a Master Mason September 15, 1956.

I would love to hear from anybody that knows these brothers, and if you brothers would call me so I can hear stories about Friendship Lodge in the 1950’s would be great.

Brothers there is a few of you that have not paid dues for this Masonic year, please ensure you dues are paid. I will send out notice to each of you next month that may have forgot to pay their dues.

We are Two Brothers

by H. L. Haywood

Give me your hand;
You are rich; I am poor;
Your wealth is your power, and by it you tread
A wide open path; where for me is a door
That is locked; and before it are worry and dread.
We are sundered, are we,
As two men can be
But we are two brothers in Freemasonry
So give me your hand. Read More
