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.

Striking Gold: Masonry in the Mother Lode Now

Learn about the new sound coming out of Auburn’s Eureka No. 16, a legendary Nevada County gearhead, and the curious case of a lost Masonic headstone in the latest issue of California Freemason Magazine, this month dedicated to the foothill lodges of California’s Mother Lode.

Rising From the Ashes

In the wake of the 2018 Camp Fire that destroyed his entire hometown of Paradise, Nate Smith—member of Table Mountain Masonic Lodge No. 124—turned to music as an artistic outlet—and found the big break he’d been searching for.

The Pin Code

Every fall, as the Grand Master prepares for the busy year ahead, he’s faced with the task of articulating the theme which will both guide his administration and define its legacy. And it needs to fit on a lapel pin.

Secrets of the Cloth: The Mystery of Masonic Folk Arts

Whether it’s through floor cloths, jewelry, woodwork, or aprons, learn about the stories Masons have been telling through these precious objects of interest. Learn more in the newest issue of California Freemason, Crafting their Legacy.

Tales From the Underground

Whether in underground caves or quarries, Masons have been known to meet in some unusual places. Learn more about how these underground meeting spaces elevated the lodge experience.

Take the #BlueLodgeChallenge

Whether your lodge is funding generous scholarships for local students or clearing trash from the roads or beach, we want the world to know about it with #bluelodgechallenge.

The Forever Pace

For most of the past year, Loren Newman ––member of Prometheus Lodge No. 851–– had a set morning routine: Wake up at 5 a.m. and get ready for an early jog… up and down a 1,000-foot-high mountain… five times.

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 […]

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Armin Houshmandi, a master Mason with Golden Rule Lodge No. 479 and the founder of the riding association the Seekers of Light, puts it this way: “The asphalt is unforgiving and physics are unforgiving, and you have to learn to work within the rules and laws of life… Where do you really do that, aside from Masonry?”

Read the Newest Issue of California Freemason!

The July/August issue of California Freemason magazine is now available on our newly redesigned online edition: californiafreemason.org!

Symbols of Femininity

On aprons and teapots, in the first degrees and the virtues and lessons of Freemasonry, feminine symbols are threaded into the very fabric of Freemasonry.

Of Their Free Will and Accord

Freemasonry’s relationship with women evolved during its long history. How has this relationship changed over time, and why are separate streams of Masonry likely to continue?

The Flame Within a Heart

The Order of DeMolay supports young men in building character and leadership skills that serve them for a lifetime. Its close friendship and enduring values provide vital support, cultivate deep understanding, and nurture emotional intelligence at a pivotal point in life.
