What is a Freemason?

What does a freemason do?

Freemason – free·ma·son. Definition: Often more commonly called a Mason, a Freemason is a member of one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies, dedicated to a moral and ethical approach to life.

Freemasons come from all faiths and backgrounds. A Freemason believes in a ‘Supreme Being’ and is concerned with moral and spiritual values. A moral and ethical approach to life is at the core of a Freemason: showing thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things. Each Freemason is urged to regard the interests of his family as paramount and practice concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

What does a Freemason Do? A Freemason is taught moral lessons and self-knowledge by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical plays performed within each Lodge. These rituals follow ancient forms, using stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides.
