The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Free and Accepted
Masons State of New York, is a fraternal organization which embodies
a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by
symbols. The fraternity strives to teach a man the duty he owes to God, his
neighbor, and to himself; but interferes neither with religion nor politics as
it prescribes the practice of virtues in the conduct of its business.
The foundation is Character. Its purpose is Service. Its measure is
Giving. Its foundation is perpetuated by "Making Good Men Better." Its
purpose is service, which is rendered to the people of New York helping
to improve their social, cultural, and economic conditions. Its measure is
giving, an act of unselfish sacrifice for the benefit of others.
