About Us

GWU is a North-American Freemasonic Obedience, with Lodges in the USA and Canada, practicing traditional continental Freemasonry for people of all origins who share the common values of:

  • Mutual Tolerance;
  • Respect of self and others;
  • Absolute liberty of conscience.

GWU members are committed to a quest for spiritual progress—the "Know Thyself" of the philosopher Socrates—while working towards the progress of humanity.

GWU is member of the international lcontinental Freemasonic organization CLIPSAS, which assembles together non-dogmatic Lodges from all corners of the world.

Our motto is:

Liberty, equality, fraternity,

Harminy, Unity, Diversity.
