Welcome to Equity Lodge No. 591 - Free and Accepted Masons

We are a duly constituted Lodge chartered by the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, which describes Freemasonry as
“a fraternity of brothers who share one common goal:
to help each other become better men”.



Freemasonry is a fraternity of brothers who share one common goal: to help each other become better men. We strengthen and improve our character by learning and practicing basic virtues of fraternal love, charity, and truth. Our principles extend far beyond our interactions with each other, and we strive to apply them to our daily lives. All who join Freemasonry must declare their belief in the existence of a Supreme Being, and practice their own personal faith, but the fraternity is neither a religion nor a place to worship. Rather, it is a place where men of all monotheistic creeds can meet and focus on the great truths of peaceful human interaction that are common to all religions.


To qualify for membership, a petitioner must be male, at least 18 years of age, one who believes in the existence of a Supreme Being, of good moral character, motivated to join for reasons unrelated to personal gain or profit, prompted by a favorable opinion of Freemasonry, desirous of earning knowledge and willing to conform to the ancient usages and customs of the fraternity.


Our tradition was to wait for you to seek membership entirely of your own free will and accord. Today, however, we allow our members to selectively invite men of good character, who will be a credit to our Fraternity. But this doesn't mean that you have to wait to be invited to join the Freemasons of Pennsylvania. Your interest is enough, if you meet the qualifications.


Every man has his own reason for wanting to be a part of the greatest fraternity in the world. Regardless of your reason, you will benefit from membership, because Freemasonry makes good men better. Look around this web site and you will find much about our history, purpose, and current day programs of education, character-development and charity.


Bring Your Equity Lodge Passport to Meetings


This passport will be a record of your achievement through the year of 2015. I encourage you to experience fellowship and maintain a record of your accomplishments in this booklet.

A Stewart/Officer will place a date stamp in the appropriate section of the passport every time you attend a meeting, helping you move toward completing your passport.
