welcome to the Onondaga County Masonic District

Welcome to the Onondaga District Masonic Web Site. There are 60 Districts comprising The Grand Lodge of New York. The Onondaga District has 14 Lodges and over 1,500 members with more joining all the time.

Masonry is the oldest fraternal organization in the world counting among it's past and current members presidents, entertainers, writers, philosophers, astronauts and scholars. Masonry's core beliefs are truth, charity, love of country and Brotherly love. With the help of our Brothers we take good men and make them better by building on these core beliefs. Freemasons live these principles on a daily basis and strive to show others through our actions what a group of people united by common beliefs can achieve.

Freemasonry does not discriminate against any race, religion or creed - we all live as Brothers bound by the love we share for each other as equals. If you wish to explore joining Freemasonry please contact us at the website and we will put you in touch with a Lodge so you can meet with several Brothers, ask questions and decide if Freemasonry is right for you.

We hope that you find this site informative and interesting. Thank you for visiting and please share your thoughts about the website with us any time.
