Masonic ritual is designed around the symbolic story of the building of a great, spiritual temple, as represented by the Temple of Solomon. The three Masonic degrees are designed to represent three stages of life: youth, manhood, and age. These three steps are based on the Journeyman System of Education used by the medieval Lodges of stonemasons, which was divided into three levels: Apprentice, Journeyman and Master Craftsman.



Masonry - What it is:
  • It is a voluntary association of men.
  • It is a system of moral conduct.
  • It is a way of life.
  • It is a fraternal society.
  • It is religious in its character.
  • It seeks to make good men better.
  • It uses rites and ceremonies to instruct its members.
  • It is based on a firm belief in the Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of Man, and the Immortality of the Soul.
  Masonry - What it is not:
  • It does not solicit members.
  • It is not an insurance or benefit society.
  • It is neither a religion nor a creed, nor a religious order.
  • It is not a charity organization but makes charity a duty.
  • It is not organized for profit.
  • It is not a secret society as it does not conceal its existence or purposes.
Our Ceremonies:
  • While not generally discussed in public, our ceremonies are used to convey our tenets to our members. Candidates for initiation, participating in these ceremonies learn solemn and serious truths about what we stand for. Candidates can be assured that at no time during the initiation process will a candidate be hurt, frightened or embarrassed
  What does it take for me to join?
  • Any man who is 19 years of age or older and of good moral character, who comes well-recommended, and who believes in a Supreme Being may petition to become a Freemason
  How do I learn more?
  • Talk to a friend who is a Mason, contact one of our officers, or e-mail our Webmaster. Each will be happy to talk about who we are and what we do
