Master’s Welcome

A greeting from the Master of the Lodge


Hello; and Welcome!

Thank you for deciding; and choosing to visit St. George’s Lodge #6 of the Free and Accepted Masons’ web page.  We are located at 394 Princetown Rd., in the Rotterdam sector (the 5 corners) of Schenectady County.

On Thursday evening, May 25, 2023, I was acknowledged by a fraternity of peers to be worthy, qualified; and capable of taking on the sacred responsibility, by being installed, as the 160th Worshipful Master of this venerable Colonial Lodge chartered by a Grand Body of competent jurisdiction on September 14, 1774 – now approaching 250 years of service to the Community in which we live, “making good men better”.

The World of Free and Accepted Masons, in which you will experience further personal growth and development, meet and make new friends; and be of service to your community, awaits you.

If you are interested in learning more; and perhaps becoming a member yourself, I cordially invite you to phone me at 518-527-7117.

My goal and plan for this Masonic year; and St. George’s Lodge, together with my TEAM (together each

achieves more) – officers and members, is to continue to build on the foundation and structure which my

predecessors have so creatively built.


Picture yourself one of the family…


Thank You.


Sincerely and Fraternally,

W:. John A. Califano

Worshipful Master

“A man cannot go very far in Freemasonry without discovering that much of it’s past continues to live in it’s present and that we do many things in our Lodges precisely because Masons have been doing them for generations. To learn something about Masonic history, therefore, is to learn something about Masonry as it now exists. Every Mason and every Lodge should recall periodically the history of the craft, review the landmarks and traditions of the fraternity, and be reminded of individual achievements. We are now in the 245th year since the founding of St. George’s Lodge and the establishment of Freemasonry in Schenectady, New York.”
