FRIEND TO FRIEND

WHY YOUR FRIEND ASK YOU TO READ THIS

    Your friend is proud of Freemasonry and the fine character of its members. He believes that you have the qualities for Membership and that you deserve the opportunity to know more about it. The following will explain what Freemasonry is, who Freemasons are, what they believe in and what they do

WHAT FREEMASONRY IS

    Freemasonry is the world's oldest and largest Fraternity. Its history and tradition date to antiquity. Its singular purpose is to make good men better. Its bonds of friendship, compassion and brotherly love have survived even the most divisive political, military and religious conflicts through the centuries. Freemasonry is neither a forum nor a place of worship. Instead, it is a friend of all religions which are based on the belief in one God

WHO FREEMASONS ARE

    Many of our nation's early patriots were Freemasons, as well as thirteen signers of the Constitution and fourteen Presidents of the United States, beginning with George Washington. Today, the more than four million freemasons around the world come from virtually every occupation and profession. Within the Fraternity, however, they all meet as equals. They come from diverse political ideologies, but they meet as friends. They come from virtually every religious belief, but they all believe in one God. One of the most fascinating aspects of Freemasonry has always been: how so many men, from so many different walks of life, can meet together in peace, never have any political or religious debates, always conduct their affairs in harmony and friendship, and call each other "Brother!"

WHAT FREEMASONS BELIEVE IN

    All Freemasons believe in one God and in respect for each other

WHAT FREEMASONS DO

    Freemasons are respectable citizens who are taught to conform to the moral laws of society and to abide by the laws of the government under which they live. They are men of charity and good works. They remain unchallenged as "the world's greatest philanthropy!" The Freemasons of America contribute more than one million dollars every day to charitable causes which they, alone, have established. These services to mankind represent an unparalleled example of the humanitarian commitment and concern of this unique and honorable Fraternity

QUALIFICATIONS

    Freemasonry is proud of its philosophy and practice of "making good men better." Only individuals believed to be of the finest character are favorably considered for Membership. Every applicant must advocate his belief in the existence of a Supreme Being (atheist are not accepted into the Fraternity)

THOSE WHO SEEK MEMBERSHIP

    Anyone seeking Membership in Freemasonry  MUST ASK

THE MASONIC LODGE

    The Masonic Lodge meets one evening per month to conduct its regular business and vote upon petitions for Membership. It is here where the bonds of friendship and fellowship are strengthened
