Grand Lodge of New Mexico Ancient Free & Accepted Masons

Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Orient of New Mexico
Often referred to as the "University of Freemasonry", the Scottish Rite is twenty nine degrees that continue the teachings of the Lodge Degrees. These degrees focus on the development of the individual as a part of society and building the principles of honor, service, and justice within themselves. The Scottish Rite consists of four bodies including the Lodge of Perfection, the Chapter Rose Croix, the Council of Kadosh, and the Consistory.
New Mexico Grand York Rite of Freemasonry
The York Rite is actually the "Blue Lodge" (Masonic Lodge) and three other cooperative groups offering a total of ten degrees and orders to continue both the allegorical references and lessons learned in the Blue Lodge Degrees. The Chapter confers four "Royal Arch" degrees, the Council three "Cryptic Masonry" degrees, and the Commandary gives three Christian Chivalric Orders culminating in the Order of the Knight of the Temple (Knight Templar). Though the York Rite is often considered the Christian branch of Masonry, the Commandery is the only group which requires a commitment to defend the Christian faith. The Chapter and Council are encouraged courses of study and ritual for members of all faiths.
New Mexico Shriners
Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth. Shriners International supports Shriners Hospitals for Children®, a health care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals. Children up to age 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.
The Lodge of Research of NM
The Lodge of Research of New Mexico was Chartered to promote, encourage, conduct and foster Masonic research and study, for the purpose of spreading Masonic Light and knowledge. Instead of conferring degrees, coaching, and local charity work; we author, publish, present, and encourage all Masons to do the same. We also welcome Masons and non-Masons (including ladies) to attend most meetings and participate (though "tyled" information and the open Lodge is still limited to Master Masons in good standing).
NM Grand Assembly of Rainbow Girls
Rainbow is an organization designed to teach girls leadership, public speaking, project management, teamwork and interpersonal communication -- all vital skills for a young woman in today's world. We help develop poise, confidence and self-esteem. We also offer our members the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and the opportunity to travel and develop lasting friendships with young women just like themselves all over our state and country.

Members have fun together at activities such as swimming parties, dances, family picnics, slumber parties, miniature golf, marching in parades and so much more.

Grand Chapter of New Mexico, Order of the Eastern Star
The Order of the Eastern Star, predominately for women with Masonic heritage, is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both women and men may belong. It is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values, and its appeal rests in the true beauty and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. Eastern Star strives to take good people and through uplifting and elevating associations of love and service, build an Order which is truly dedicated to charity, truth and loving kindness.
