The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons State of New York is a non-profit organization which embodies a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.
The fraternity, founded upon faith-based principles established in the Holy Bible, 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.
Fraternally and always yours,
Most Worshipful Larry Mitchell
