Most Worshipful Grand Master of California
Assisted by the Grand Lodge Officers
San Marino Lodge U.D.F.&A.M. is the first Masonic Lodge to be instituted in the City of San Marino. It takes its name from that of the city. San Marino Marno was founded April 25, 1913. It was named after the Republic of San Marino, the oldest and smallest Republic in the world. The founder members of San Marino Lodge 408. recognize their duty to pay the craft their wages, if any be due, that none may go away dissatisfied, harmony being the strength and support of all society, especially of ours. They therefore pay to the Grand Lodge Officers who take part in the institution of the lodge, their wages in coin of the Republic of San Marino. These coins bear on their face the same coat of arms as does the official seal of the City of San Marino.
We bring the best in every men.
The mission of the Masons of California is to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others.
Our mission is guided by the enduring and relevant principles of our fraternity:

Relief. We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.
Truth. We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics - honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge
We are committed to engaging and retaining members and their families through an enhanced, sustaining, and relevant membership experience.
