Cerrillos Lodge No. 19, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, is the first (and only) recognized Traditional Observance Lodge within the Grand Jurisdiction of New Mexico. Cerrillos Lodge’s recognition as a Traditional Observance Lodge is a testament to the Cerrillos Lodge brethren’s commitment to the fundamental values of our noble Craft. Whether you are already a brother or are simply interested in Masonry, we hope you will be able to learn more about our Lodge, our brothers, and our work through this website.
Cerrillos Lodge is one of the most unique lodges in New Mexico. We have over forty members, ranging in age from early twenties to mid-nineties, representing different countries, faiths, creeds, political beliefs, and races. Our brothers take pride in the cultivation of unity, our cultural differences notwithstanding. We also pride ourselves on our ritual work, having received the Ron Brinkman “Master Builder” award for ritual excellence for five consecutive years. At any given communication you will find the Cerrillos Lodge brethren engaged in philosophical discussions on the history and symbolism of our fraternity, planning our philanthropic work, or practicing for our next degree conferral.
Throughout our 126 year history, the brothers of Cerrillos Lodge have worked together to make New Mexico a better place. In furtherance of this mission, we have a monthly meeting on the second Wednesday of the month at the Montezuma Masonic Lodge located at 431 Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our meetings start at 7:30 p.m., and we welcome visitors to join us for a meal before the meeting, starting at 6:30 p.m.
