What is a Freemason? Many answers are available but we quote the explanation given by The United Grand Lodge of England on their web site. Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it is about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it is about being able to help deserving causes such as making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry.
Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas - a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge, which follow ancient forms, and use stonemason's customs and tools as allegorical guides. Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: our values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.
From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today. In addition, large sums are given to national and local charities.
