What Do Freemasons Do?

Freemasons endeavor to have a genuine desire for knowledge and a sincere wish to become extensively serviceable to their fellow man. Masonic help is always extended to those, who through unforeseen circumstances, have met with misfortune and require assistance. Freemasons from time to time provide voluntary monetary contributions and/or assistance to various charities or persons in distress.

Freemasons attend regular meetings, which are intended to teach lessons of uprightness, invoke leadership skills and cultivate the mind socially and intellectually.

Freemasons strive for truth and curiosity in all things. Each member takes vows of secrecy with the spirit of honesty, friendship, good moral character and equality by their own will and with their own civil, moral and/or religious convictions

Freemasonry does not solicit new members. Membership is gained by an individual request only. Requests for membership are investigated to ensure only persons of good moral character and judgment are considered.
