Freemasonry teaches man to practice charity and benevolence, to protect chastity, to respect the ties of blood and friendship, to adopt the principles and revere the tenets of religion, to assist the feeble, guide the blind, raise up the downtrodden, shelter the orphan, guard the alter, support the Government, inculcate morality, promote learning, love man, fear God, implore His mercy and hope for happiness.
Warren Lodge No. 8, F.&A.M. P.H.A. was duly chartered and constituted by the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia on December 27, 1871. We are recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England, and thus, are considered regular Masons.
In addition to being one of the oldest Fraternal Orders in the nation, we are also a federally recognized non-profit organization that actively engages in community outreach. Our charitable endeavors include providing food and clothing to those who are in need through partnerships with The Salvation Army, The American Red Cross, the SHARE Food Network, and various DC Homeless Shelters. We also provide aid to many widows and orphans who reside in the metropolitan area, as well as scholarships to DC high school seniors.
