We embrace social progress and diversity. All human beings are equal members. We work together in harmony and peace to better ourselves. We practice charity providing support to local charities, orphanages in Togo, and a local scholarship.
Our Lodge was founded almost 95 years ago in Baltimore, Maryland.
Social Progress and Diversity
Orpheus Lodge works under the auspices of the Supreme Council of the International Order of Freemasonry for Men and Women LE DROIT HUMAIN, which admits all human beings alike of all races, faiths, or philosophical beliefs.
Following the example of our illustrious predecessors, we Freemasons of both hemispheres declare ourselves fraternally united in the love of humanity.
Liberty, Equality, Fraternity
We wish fully to realize both in masonry and in the outer world the motto of “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.” We strive to elevate our thoughts, to speak the truth, to do well, to be tolerant to others, to practice liberty under law, fraternal equality, justice, and solidarity, to ensure the harmony between human beings and nature as a whole, essential for our life and that of our descendants.
