What is a Masonic lodge?
Freemasonry began when stonemasons formed local organizations, called lodges, to take care of sick and injured members, as well as the families of those who were killed on the job. The masons also used the lodges as places to meet, receive their pay, plan their work, train new apprentices, and socialize. Today, this term refers both to a unit of Masons and the room or building in which they meet. There are nearly 400 lodges in Indiana and approximately 13,000 in the United States.

Did you know that ...you DO NOT have to be a Mason to attend our social nights? That's true, and if you're interested in Masonry, or becoming a Mason you are fully welcome to attend any of of social nights (or for our dinners, 6pm to 7pm, held before any meetings at our lodge each Thurs) and meet our awesome Masons. No notice is necessary, but if you want to RSVP, just send a note to our lodge Secretary via our lodge contact form.
To see when our next lodge social is, check out our lodge calendar (aka "Trestle Board") to see our activity schedule.
Welcome to Carmel Masonic Lodge #421, where Freemasons gather for fellowship, charity, and personal growth. We're excited to share that our lodge is growing stronger each year, with enthusiastic new members joining our community.
If you're not familiar with Freemasonry, we encourage you to learn more about it. Come and visit us at our lodge on Thursday evenings from 6pm to 7pm, and we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can also view our Trestle Board to see upcoming events.
At 421, we pride ourselves on being an open and welcoming lodge, with a friendly and active atmosphere. Many of our members who haven't been attending regularly find themselves drawn back in by the positive energy of our community. Whether you want to participate in degree work or simply socialize with us, we welcome you with open arms.
We're constantly improving our communication with members through our website, email, and social media outreach, so you can stay informed about everything that's happening at our lodge.
Finally, we're thrilled to see the continued success of our vibrant Job's Daughters group, which provides positive activities for female teens and benefits both our members and the community.
We invite you to become a part of our growing community of Freemasons at Carmel 421 Masonic Lodge. Contact us today to learn more and get involved!
We have the year planned out and encourage anyone who has time, to view the Trestleboard for upcoming events.
