Together we make a profound difference

169th Annual Communication: A Weekend in San Francisco
October 19-21, 2018

As golden fall sunshine sweeps the colorful hills of San Francisco and gleams upon its bay, California’s Masonic community will convene at the California Masonic Memorial Temple to mark another year of Freemasonry in the Golden State. Our annual homecoming is a chance to come together, to reconnect with dear friends, and to share the joy of fraternity with treasured brothers near and far. Whether it is your first Annual Communication or your 50th, you’ll return home with a deep sense of appreciation for California Masonry, connections to brothers you’ll call upon for years to come, and a renewed perspective of what we are capable of achieving, together.

Advanced registration is only required for those who are reserving a hotel room or special events tickets. Early purchase is recommended, as special events and discounted hotel rates are limited and will sell out.
