Mission and Purpose

Mission Statement



The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Texas and Its Jurisdiction is a non-profit organization which embodies an attractive system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. The fraternity, founded upon Christian principles established in the Holy Bible, strives to teach a man the duty he owes to God, his neighbor and to himself; but interferes neither with religion or politics as it prescribes the practice of virtues in the conduct of its business. The foundation is character. Its purpose is service. Its measure is giving. Making “Good Men Better” perpetuates its foundation. Its purpose is service, which is rendered to the people of Texas to improve their social, cultural and economic conditions. Its measure is giving, an act of unselfish sacrifice for the benefit of others.   The Mission Statement is promulgated by the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Texas and the Subordinate Lodges owing obedience to the same and by its Supreme Authority.  The purpose of this Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Texas is to control and regulate the practice of Freemasonry throughout its Jurisdiction, in accordance with immemorial usages of this Ancient and Honorable Craft, and to advance the moral and social interests of its membership’s honesty, industry and upright living.  It cultivates the exercise of charity in its best and broadest sense, to assist the Widows and Orphans of its deceased members, to stimulate friendship, harmony and brotherly love and generally, to promote in its own way, the happiness of mankind. It is a fraternity of good men, linked and bound together by honorable and unbreakable bonds of friendship and virtue, and to accomplish the noble purpose it eschews all interest in fractional politics and sectarian religion and free from the dictation of both.
