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.

Honoring the 70-year commitment of Brother Charles A. Tomassene Jr.

Brothers Chris Chase and Jim Loennig presented Charles A Tomassene, Jr with his 70 year award. You heard of the influx in Masonry after WW2 that is true and Charles was one of the thousands who came back and join a Lodge. It doesnt hurt that he was DeMolay from Friendship also. Charles was raised a Master Mason October 20, 1948 and owned and operated his own Insurance Agency.
