The Purpose of Freemasonry...

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 History of Livingston Lodge

In the early months of 1858, eleven men joined together to establish a Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons in the town of Springfield, Louisiana. With the belief in God and aiming towards a better moral station in themselves, these men laid the foundation for Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth that exists in Livingston Lodge to this day. Over the span of 160 years, Livingston Lodge has initiated men into the degrees of Freemasonry through a course of moral instruction which uses both allegories and symbols to teach its lessons.

Becoming a Freemason

The values a Mason should live by:
Belief in a Supreme Being
Remain open-minded to learn and stay on Masonry’s path to moral goodness
Relate to other Masons on an equal basis, i.e., on the level
Avoid belittling others to enhance your own stature
Avoid contention and arguments
Strive for honesty, fidelity, integrity, tolerance, fair dealing, and charity
Respect for labor – craftsmanship, dedication, skill, and intelligence
These values are basic to the lasting harmony of our lodges and our Masonic fraternity.
