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.

Learn more about the creation of the program in 2011, and its expansion since, both in the California Freemason magazine. Read the MSOS newsletter.

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.

Get Your Lodge Involved

MOS is currently conducting outreach trainings for lodges in all Divisions. We are excited to bring Lodge Outreach meetings to your lodge in several different formats in order to provide vital information about the MOS programs. We recommend that Masons reach out to their lodge leadership if they would like to know who their representative is and to inquire about joining the Lodge Outreach Program as a Lodge Outreach Training Coordinator.

Please call us at (888) 466-3642 or email us at lodgeoutreach@mhcuc.org for outreach guidance, to request an informational presentation at your lodge, and for help using the numerous outreach resources on this website.
