WHO ARE FREEMASONS?


A Freemason is a member of the world's largest fraternal organization. He not only enjoys the friendship and brotherhood of other Freemasons in his community, but is also welcomed by Freemasons anywhere in the world.

A Freemason is a man of faith, who uses tools of moral and ethical principles to serve mankind. He binds himself to like-binded men in a brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, social, cultural and educational differences. He shows the aspirations and obligations of men of good will who will seek to make themselves better than they are - not better than others.

A Freemason is dedicated - he recognizes his responsibility for justice, truth, charity, honesty and integrity. Working to build his life and character, just as a carpenter works at building a house. He believes that there is such a thing as honour, and that a man has responsibility to act with honour in everythig he does. A Freemason teaches and practices that principle. He believes that a life not founded on honour is hollow and empty and that a man who acts without honour is less than a man.

A Freemanson believes that is only more blessed to give than to receive, it is also more rewarding. He becomes involved with the problems and needs of others because he knows it gives each of us a good feeling to help, a feeling unlike any other. He believes that every person should strive to be a good citizen and that he has a moral duty to be true to the country in which he lives, for loyalty to one's country is essential.

Freemasons and Masonic Family contribute not only their money, but also an incredible amount of time to various charities. Over three million dollars per day are donated to various charitable works. Much of our help is given anonymously. We are not after gratitude. We are more than rewarded by that feeling which comes from knowing that we have helped another person overcome some adversity, so that their lives can go on.
