About Us

These are the ideals of Freemasonry.

The Masonic Renewal Committee is composed of dedicated Freemasons from across North America. Like you, we believe the values and ideas of Freemasonry are needed in this complex and dynamic world.

We work with Grand Lodges to provide tools which the thousands of lodges throughout North American use for growth and development of their members. We gather and distribute information from state and provincial level as well as grassroots sources. We do this so the innovative efforts of lodges and Grand Lodges may swiftly and efficiently implement these tools for their betterment.
