The Beaches Lodge meets on the 1st Thursday of every month except July and August. The Lodge will typically open its doors at 7:30pm and host visitors after. Our Official Visit is in March and the Installation is in May. We invite all traveling brethren to visit our Lodge, which meets in The York Temple in Toronto.
What we Do
What is Freemasonry?
Making Good Men Even Better
Freemasonry is the oldest and largest world wide fraternity dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of a Supreme Being. Although of a religious nature, Freemasonry is not a religion. It urges its members, however, to be faithful and devoted to their own religious beliefs.
The organization of Freemasonry is based on a system of Grand Lodges, each sovereign within its own territory. There is no central authority governing all Grand Lodges. However, to be acknowledged by others, acceptable traditions, standards and practices must be maintained.
In our Province the governing body is called the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. It is under the leadership of a Grand Master. He presides over the 57,664 Masons who belong to one or more of the 611 lodges in our jurisdiction. Each of these lodges is under the direction of a Master.
Any man who becomes a Mason is taught a pattern for living – reverence, morality, kindness, honesty, dependability and compassion. He must be prepared to honour his country, uphold its laws and respect those in authority. He must be prepared to maintain honourable relations with others and be willing to share in Masonic activities.
