Discover Freemasonry (scroll down)

Be a Mason. Be a Brother.

The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it. It cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted. It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity. Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone. — William Howard Taft

Freemasonry was founded by men who shared a commitment to supporting each other in friendship, fellowship and service to mankind.

In order to become a Freemason, it is necessary to meet these requirements:

  1. Be a man.
  2. Have a sound reputation, and be well-recommended by your peers.
  3. Believe in a Supreme Being, regardless of your religion.
  4. Be over the age of 18 years.

Build Your Character

The Freemason motto is "better men make a better world." Freemasonry stresses honor, personal responsibility and personal integrity, and offers the following to its members:

  1. Teachings on the philosophy and history of Freemasonry.
  2. Encouragement to live for the good of all mankind, and ideas for practicing good citizenship and acting with charity and love.
  3. An invitation to participate in the ancient rites of Freemasonry, including a handshake, the rituals of initiation, and freedom to use the Masonic square and compass symbol.
