The Order of the Eastern Star is a way to have female relatives of Master Masons to share the benefits of knowledge and self-improvement that Freemasonry made available to men and to have a place in the Masonic Family that would allow men and women to participate together.

About Freemasonry

  • Punta Gorda 115

    On behalf of The Worshipful Master and Punta Gorda Lodge No. 115 we welcome you to our website. Freemasonry has been an integral part of Southwest Florida and Punta Gorda since the late 1800’s. Members of our Lodge have come from a wide variety of occupations and professions; from lawyers and doctors, politicians and business leaders, to artists and chefs; these men have come together in the common bond of Brotherhood and strong moral principle of gentlemen, striving to make Punta Gorda a better place.

  • Beliefs and Tenets

    Masonry is a closed society, not open to the general public, but rather to persons of like persuasions and ideals. While no two people are alike, they can share a common belief in the Brotherhood of man and in ONE who we in Masonry refer to as the Supreme Architect of the Universe. The tenets of Masonry are Brotherhood, Relief and Truth.
  • Equality

    We espouse all men being equal, regardless of their worldly wealth or position, and attempt to relieve our fellow man’s woes and tribulations, again regardless of membership in the Fraternity. We are a fraternity that contributes to society and communities in continued actions of charity. We practice the virtue of Truth. This may be the hardest of all, because it is often easier to tell a little white lie than to confront one with the truth.
