Palo Alto Lodge No. 346

Making true friends,
improving ourselves, having an impact

Since 1902

What is Masonry?

Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization.  It is guided by the enduring belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place.  For 300 years, Freemasonry has enhanced and strengthened the character of individual men by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, and the search for truth – within ourselves and the larger world.

Our Mission and Our Lodge

Palo Alto Lodge No. 346 was founded in 1902 and we are committed to attracting men of honor, integrity, dedication, and a pleasant bearing, who strive for self-improvement and the opportunity to make a positive difference in the community, while preserving the history and ritual of the institution.

Join Us

Palo Alto Lodge’s membership is open to men 18 and older who meet the qualifications and standards of character and intention, and who believe in a Supreme Being.  Men of all ethnic and religious backgrounds are welcome.

One of Freemasonry’s customs is not to solicit members – men must seek membership on their own initiative. Anyone is welcome to request information about the fraternity.

If you are interested in applying for membership to our lodge, now is a good time to start.  Please contact us to schedule a visit during an event, or request more information.

Palo Alto Lodge No. 346: Monthly TrestleBoard

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Armin Houshmandi, a master Mason with Golden Rule Lodge No. 479 and the founder of the riding association the Seekers of Light, puts it this way: “The asphalt is unforgiving and physics are unforgiving, and you have to learn to work within the rules and laws of life… Where do you really do that, aside from Masonry?”

The Flame Within a Heart

The Order of DeMolay supports young men in building character and leadership skills that serve them for a lifetime. Its close friendship and enduring values provide vital support, cultivate deep understanding, and nurture emotional intelligence at a pivotal point in life.

Generations Connected

Two Senior DeMolays cross a generational divide and find commonalities through their experience in DeMolay International.

Mentorship is Meaningful

Adult mentors of our youth orders find that not only is mentorship helping the kids thrive and build important skills, it’s also fulfilling for the mentors themselves. Watch this brief video featuring Masons who mentor DeMolay chapters at their lodges.

Coming Together to Give Back

In the 2017-2018 fraternal year, 18 lodges pledged – as Pace Setter donors – to the Let’s Write the Future campaign between $100,000 and $300,000. Learn why three lodges chose to write a better future for California communities.

Welcome Grand Master Wright!

Last Sunday, October 21, Most Worshipful Brother Stuart A. Wright was installed as grand master of Masons in California. We look forward to a year of growth and prosperity under his leadership, inspired by his theme: “Freemasonry… the difference is you.”

Commemorating a Masonic Monument

Earlier this summer, Grand Master Galloway joined the Masons of King David’s Lodge No. 209 for a ceremonial resealing of the Dorn Pyramid, a 23-foot tall granite mausoleum originally constructed in 1905. Robert Sachs, master of King David’s Lodge, shares the history and rumors of the Dorn Pyramid.
