Palestine Lodge No. 189

Ancient Free & Accepted Masons - Catonsville, Maryland - Since 1891

Greetings

Welcome to Palestine Lodge No. 189, a Lodge of Maryland Freemasons, their families, and friends located in Catonsville, Maryland, USA.  Freemasons endeavor to follow the principles of brotherly love, charity for all, and the pursuit of truth to build their character and grow as human beings.  The motto of the fraternity is, “We make good men better.”

Our Lodge was founded in 1891 and named after the founder’s hometown of Palestine, Texas.  Since 1903 we have occupied the beautiful stone Masonic Temple located at 837 Frederick Road at the corner of Newburg Ave. (Main Street, Catonsville). Our membership reflects the Masonic principle of equality.  They come from diverse economic backgrounds, occupations, religions, races, and origins.  We meet “On the Level.”  Our foundation is a common belief in God.

This website contains information about the Freemason fraternity in general and our Lodge in particular.  We hope you will find it interesting.  Please contact us if you have any questions.
