Introducing The 2019 - 2020 
Grand Master of Masons in Arizona​​
Most Worshipful Grand Master,
Gregory A. Vasquez

Achieving a goal can be a long monumental journey but achieving the office of Grand Master is a goal and journey like no other. I am truly honored, proud, and humbled to have been elected to serve as the 138th Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Arizona. 

Throughout this next Masonic year, I will strive to maintain open communications between the Grand Lodge, its officers, the lodges and appendant bodies.  We are all of a like mind, that of providing Charity for those in need, Brotherly Love to those in our Masonic family and Truth in our dealings with our brethren, our sisters, our youth and those who are not a part of our family but who look to us for guidance and acceptance into our family. 

Most Worshipful Grand Master,
Gregory A. Vasquez

Second, I will work to attend as many the important functions, like installations, communications, conclaves, etc., as possible, or send an official representative, for our Masonic youth groups as well as the adult concordant and appendant bodies.  As Masons it is important that we support those in need but specially to support our brothers and sisters and our youth. 
Third, I want to continue our tradition of celebrating Christmas with a party held in the Phoenix area and expand this family activity to include a spring picnic again in the Phoenix area for the purpose of promoting the Masonic Family. 

Finally, I want to say “thank you” again for the privilege and honor of electing me to serve as Grand Master for the ensuing Masonic year.  I pledge to serve to the best of my abilities.

Save the date!

  Come one, come all!  Mark your calendar!  Save the Date!

This year the Grand Lodge of Arizona is having its Christmas Party on December 7th.

The place will be at the El Zaribah Shrine Auditorium, 552 N 40th St, Phoenix, AZ 85008.

The 2019 - 2020 Grand Master's Pin

This year, 2019-2020, the Grand Master’s pin features the state of Arizona overlaid with the Square and Compasses, the Sun, the Moon and All-Seeing Eye.  The significance being that as the Sun governs the day and the Moon rules the night so should the Master, with equal regularity, rule and govern his lodge. 

So, my brothers, as we wear the Grand Masters pin, we are reminded to act and govern ourselves as a Freemason in all our doings, keeping our passions within due bounds and remembering to look well to our tenents- Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

WHAT IS FREEMASONRY?

The Mission of Freemasonry​​​

The mission of Freemasonry is to promote a way of life that binds like minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences; by teaching the great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth: and, by the outward expression of these, through its fellowship, its compassion and its concern, to find ways in which to serve God, family, country, neighbors and self.
