What is Freemasonry

For centuries, millions of men of every race, color, creed, and political persuasion throughout the world have found in the Symbolic Lodges of Freemasonry the light to guide their search for answers to eternal questions:

What is the meaning of life?

What is the nature of God and man?

Freemasonry is a system of morality, veiled in allegory, illustrated by symbols. Not a religion; but religious in character, it is a philosophy of ethical conduct which imparts moral and social virtues and fosters brotherly love. Its tenets have endured since man turned the first pages of civilization. They embody the understanding by which man can transcend ordinary experience and build a “house not made with hands” in harmony with the Great Architect of the universe.

Yet Freemasonry can never conflict with a man’s relationship to God or fellow man. Sectarian religious or partisan political discussion in a lodge is strictly prohibited. Every Mason stands equal among his brothers, regardless of walk of life, and none is turned away for financial need.

The purpose of the Ancient Craft of Freemasonry is to unfold a message where “truth abides in fullness”, invoking greater understanding of the inward life and a spirit of fellowship in which every Mason can also lead a better outward life.

Freemasonry is a fraternity. In fact, it is the world’s oldest fraternal organization. Freemasonry encourages its members to practice the faith of their personal acceptance. Masonry teaches that each person, through self-improvement and helping others, has an obligation to make a difference for good in the world.

What does Freemasonry do for society in the present time?

In North America alone, Freemasonry contributes over two million dollars a day to charitable causes through its various concordant bodies. Most of that assistance goes to people who are not Masons. Some of these charities are vast projects.

The Shrine Masons, known as Shriners, operate the largest network of hospitals for burned and orthopedically impaired children in the country, and there is never a fee for treatment.

The Scottish Rite Masons maintain a nationwide network of over 150 Childhood Language Disorder Clinics, Centers and Programs.

The York Rite continues its philanthropy in a variety of charities, including scholarship programs for students, and perform public service activities in their communities.
