Who Are We?
What is Freemasonry?
We are the neighbour next door, the coworker in the next cubicle, the coach of your child's team, the teacher who educates your child, the plumber you call upon, the law enforcement officer who protects you, the investment adviser you trust, the attorney who defends you, the physician who treats you, the truck driver who moves commerce around your country.
We are you.
We are men dedicated to pursuing moral excellence, developing sterling character, and serving our communities through charitable works. We are men unafraid to be men, declaring and doing what is right, committed to decency. We believe in respecting the liberty and rights of others.
We are Masons.
Masons are good men made better through the principles of Masonry, which admonish us to constantly attend to love of God (however conceived by the individual Mason), love of mankind, and relief of the distressed. These principles are what distinguish us, make us more than men, more than a fraternity, more than a social organization.
Being a Freemason, or Mason for short, is about a Father helping his Son make better decisions; a business leader striving to bring morality to the workplace; a thoughtful Man learning to work through tough issues in his life.
What supports and unifies Masons is not where we come from, or what we do for a living, but rather what we aspire to be.
If you believe yourself to be a good man and you are curious about becoming a better man through Masonry, take a few minutes to explore these pages. You may find that in your heart you are us.
