Freemasonry is the world's oldest and largest fraternity. It is comprised of adult men (18+) of good character from every country, religion, race, age, income, education, and opinion. Its body of knowledge and system of ethics is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, his faith, his country, and his fraternity.  Freemasonry is always ready to welcome good men in the Fraternity.  Do you have what it takes to be not just a man... but a Mason?

FREEMASONRY:  Making Good Men Better, Since Time Immemorial

Embrace Brotherhood

You can't un-friend Brotherhood

In today’s world, it is difficult for men to come together in a way that enables them to develop true and lasting connections. Increasing demands from our careers and family makes camaraderie difficult to establish and maintain. Masons develop a connection built on shared beliefs and experiences. This creates a profound bond that transcends ordinary kinship. Brothers support and challenge one another, share knowledge and wisdom, and provide light and hope in times of darkness. As a brother, you will always have a network of peers who care about you, no matter the hardships you may face.

Community Engagement

A difference is the only thing worth making

In this world of plenty, no one should be in need. Freemasons believe that the desire to help others is a natural by-product of our own personal growth and development. When good men come together, this desire (and our ability to put it into action) grows exponentially. From the earliest days of Freemasonry, providing care and resources for others has been one of our most vital activities. In fact, we give over 2 million dollars to national and local charities every single day. More importantly than financial support, however, is that all Masons give generously of both their time and talents.

Self Improvement

The search for truth is its own reward

As Freemasons, we continually seek to better ourselves and the world around us through the pursuit of knowledge. At its core, Freemasonry is about the nature of truth. Together, we pursue wisdom through a system of values. We use symbols and allegory because they are the surest way in which our shared truth may be taught. Through these symbols and our shared traditions, each Mason defines and discovers his own unique path. The opportunities for betterment are immeasurable, whether it’s through helping a brother in need or supporting the community through acts of charity.
