Brotherly Love: How a man chooses to practice his personal
religious beliefs is left entirely up to him, but Freemasonry recognizes the strong bond which unites all people under One
Creator. Our members include men from a wide range of religious backgrounds, but each of them shares a commitment to this
Relief: Because of our strong bond of Brotherly Love,
Masons provide Relief to help those who are in need. This includes the notion of charity, and Masons provide much assistance
to worthy charities, but it also means offering a helping hand, in other ways, to people that need assistance.
Truth: As Masons, we are committed to being honest and
truthful with other people. The Masonic Fraternity teaches a man to be faithful to his responsibilities to God, his Country,
his fellow man, his family and himself. The Masonic principle of Truth also teaches a man to search for wisdom and understanding.
For only in this way can he grow and become a better person. The pursuit of knowledge is at the very heart of our purpose.
