About Cerrillos Lodge

For over 125 years, Cerrillos Lodge has been a source of light, first in the old mining town of Cerrillos, New Mexico, and later in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Cerrillos Lodge is not the oldest, grandest, or largest Lodge in New Mexico, but it may well be the most unique. Cerrillos Lodge has a diverse membership of brothers from all walks of life, and all corners of the world. A number of the brethren are exceptionally talented operative craftsmen, as well as speculative craftsmen.

Cerrillos Lodge is known for its esoteric disposition, as the brethren have traditionally been inclined to careful study of Masonic symbolism in the quest for knowledge, understanding, and truth. Cerrillos Lodge emphasizes the importance of charity, through volunteering and fundraising. Cerrillos Lodge also has a reputation for excellence in ritual work among the brethren of other Lodges.

If you are interested in Masonry, or are a sojourning brother, we cordially invite you to share in fellowship with us at our monthly dinner, which we share before our regular monthly communication. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month, and dinner begins at 6:30 pm. We hope to see you!
