Freemasonry is the world’s oldest, largest, and most philanthropic fraternal organization. As Freemasons we live by an ethical and moral code that distinguishes us and creates an atmosphere where friendship and understanding can grow among men of every religion, race and culture. This is the public website of the Grand Lodge of Rhode Island.
