"Friendship, Integrity, Charity, Respect are four words which neatly sum up our approach to daily living. Socially, we learn to be sympathetic towards others and focus on benevolence and charity, the finding-out and relief of misfortune."
What is it and what does it mean?
Freemasonry is one of the worlds oldest and largest organisations. It teaches self-knowledge and members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry.
Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For Some, it is about making new friends and acquaintance's, for other it's about being able to help deserved causes, contributing to family and society. For most it is an enjoyable hobby that can make a difference.
Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life. its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family.
Every freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding.
Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community, by charitable giving, voluntary efforts and work as individuals.
Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.
