The mission of Livingston Lodge is “To raise intellectual and spiritual consciousness, to promote a way of life that strengthens the family and the human community, to provide a fraternal environment that unites men of every country, sect, and opinion and conciliate true friendship among those who might have otherwise remained at a perpetual distance.

The brethren of Livingston Lodge are men who derive from nearly every walk of life, reside in nearly every financial category, and hold steadfast in the faith of nearly every religious sect. We stand at odds on political views and social distinction, as do Masons around the world. Yet, with all the divisive obstacles built into today’s society, with all the moral, social, financial, and political differences that usually succeed in the division of men, we stand as one. You are your brother’s keeper. And we are brothers, not in blood but in bond and let no man, no distinction, no estrangement, prevent us from standing on a level of absolute equality with our brethren.
