Lodge Outreach Program
In 2011, Masonic Outreach Services (MOS) worked with lodges in the San Diego region to create the Lodge Outreach Program. Through this partnership – which continues to expand statewide – MOS provides support and training to dedicated volunteer Masons in each district, enabling them to collaborate on outreach efforts and build a stronger, more effective outreach network across their area of California.
Thanks to the good work of lodges and outreach volunteers, hundreds of Masonic family members have accessed the services they need to be healthy and safe.
Here's how the program works
- Masonic Outreach Services (MOS) staff train volunteer Masons to be district-level “training coordinators.”
- Training coordinators return to their districts to teach lodge leaders and volunteer Masons from each lodge how to identify members in need, how to access MOS resources, and outreach best practices.
- Assistant grand lecturers, inspectors, and training coordinators meet quarterly to expand their knowledge, collaborate on community outreach efforts, and identify and share best practices.

MOS is currently conducting outreach trainings for lodges in Divisions I, II, VII, VIII, IX, and X. These trainings will expand to Divisions III, IV, V and VI in early 2017.
