Downey United Lodge No. 220

The Sensation of The Nation

What is Masonry?

Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization.  It is guided by the enduring belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place.  For 300 years, Freemasonry has enhanced and strengthened the character of individual men by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, and the search for truth – within ourselves and the larger world.

Our Mission and Our Lodge

Downey United Lodge’s mission is to promote personal growth and improve the lives of others.  We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole.  We value respect, kindness, tolerance, and our differences – religious, ethnic, cultural, generational, and educational, and strive for harmony in our individual lives, in our lodge, and in the global community.

As a lodge, we strive to be an active member of our community, and have various events throughout the year, from charitable and educational events, to social events with members-only as well as our families.

Rewards of Being a Freemason

Making True Friends

Masonry is a community of men and their families who share similar beliefs and values. The fraternity finds it important to connect with other men of honor, compassion, love, trust, and knowledge, regardless of their race, color, religious beliefs, political views, sexual orientation, physical ability, citizenship or national origin. We are friends and brothers, and are connected through this vital and uplifting organization of moral men.

Improving Ourselves

Our continuing pursuit of truth, knowledge, ethics and leadership skills makes us better men and brings more meaning to our lives. Learning the tenets of Freemasonry, paired with being an active part of our community give us the opportunity to develop leadership and organizational skills, builds self-discipline through commitment and self-confidence.

Having an Impact

As a member of the Freemasons, The Grand Lodge of California, and Downey United Lodge No. 220, we are a part of a worldwide organization that values tradition, history, and timeless wisdom. The traditions and core values of our fraternity are meaningful today and will endure for centuries to come because of our direct impact in our community, through our charities, and on a personal level.

Join Us

Downey United Lodge membership is open to men 18 and older who meet the qualifications and standards of character and intention, and who believe in a Supreme Being.  Men of all ethnic and religious backgrounds are welcome.

One of Freemasonry’s customs is not to solicit members – men must seek membership on their own initiative. Anyone is welcome to request information about the fraternity.

If you are interested in applying for membership to our lodge, now is a good time to start.  Please contact us to schedule a visit during an event, or request more information.

Masonic news

Worth the Trip

As master of his not-so-nearby lodge, Barstow Boron Lodge 682, Miguel Vazquez makes the long trip into the Inland Empire numerous times each week to sit in the East. Still, you won’t hear him complain. Neither will the other 122 members of the Masonic lodge.

Eye of the Beholder

Could a hiding-in-plain-sight Masonic icon change the way we understand a Diego Rivera masterpiece?

Spanning the Divide

For many lodge leaders, navigating the tangles of intralodge conflicts and beefs isn’t just challenging—it can feel totally outside their skill set. Yet a lodge master’s greatest responsibility isn’t just balancing the books or organizing events; it’s maintaining lodge harmony.

Past Present

When Bob Sachs first peered inside the vault in the basement of his lodge hall, he wasn’t totally sure what he was looking at, but there, wrapped in canvas, was a five-foot-tall painting of George Washington dressed in a Masonic apron.

Pyramid Scheme

What started as an idea to turn a quick buck on a national holiday morphed into a million-dollar idea for North Bay Mason Jim McCullough.

Trust Fall

During lockdown, the usually reserved Rio Santonil was compelled by an urge for action. And so, in September, he resolved to fulfill a lifetime goal and go skydiving. And then he did it again. And again. And again.

A Second Home

Fraternal organizations played a historic and civic role within Filipino American communities. Learn more about the rapid growth of Fil-Am Freemasonry.

California Freemason: The Filipino Issue

In the latest issue of California Freemason, we explore that special bond and celebrate the many ways Filipino American Masons have and continue to strengthen the fraternity.

An Absolute Corker

Shrouded in equal parts mystery and merriment, Ye Antient Order of Noble Corks is a bit of an outlier even within the sometimes bewildering world of Freemasonry.

At Refreshment

A curious thing happens at the close of many Masonic lodges. Drinks are poured. Glasses clink. Mirth swells. The lodge is “at refreshment,” an important if unofficial custom that encapsulates so much of what #Freemasonry is all about.

The Spring Refresh

Belly up to the bar and pour yourself a drink: It’s California Freemason magazine’s Spring Drinks issue, our libatious celebration of the spirit-raising power of a good drink shared with good friends.

Strength in Numbers

In a year without lodge, California Freemasons made their presence felt like never before.

Lodge Open House Event

The Masons of Downey United Lodge # 220 are pleased to invite everyone to our Open House which will take place on Saturday September 28th, 2019 between 1 pm and 5 pm. Our Open House has been planned to allow the community an opportunity to tour our Lodge and see who we are and what […]
