About Us


Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world. With around 4 million members worldwide, it is truly a fellowship of men without boundaries.

The stated goal of Masonry or ' The Craft ' as it is known among members is to take good men and make them better. Better for themselves, for their families, and for their communities. When a man joins a Masonic Lodge, he discovers a brotherhood of like minded men, dedicated to improving themselves. In an age long ago, Masons were responsible for the construction of the most magnificent buildings mankind has ever known. In the modern age, Freemasons are occupied in the construction of a much more important structure. We build character in ourselves and in each other. By providing the new member with countless opportunities to improve himself through social interaction, we hope to build a better man, and ultimately a better world. Masonry is not a religion, but does require a belief in a Supreme Being. Beyond that one requirement, it teaches toleration and respect of all the religous beliefs of mankind. In this sense, Freemasonry is a uniter and not a divider. We seek to teach the timeless truths of Brotherhood, Tolerance, and Charity.
