What is the purpose of Masonry? One of its most basic purposes is to make good men even better. We try to place emphasis on the individual man by strengthening his character, improving his moral and spiritual outlook, and broadening his mental horizons


We try to impress on the minds of our members the principals of personal responsibility and morality, encouraging each member to practice in his daily life the lesson taught through symbolic ceremonies in the lodge. One of the universal doctrines of Freemasonry is the belief in the "Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God". The importance of this belief is established by each Mason as he practices the three principal tenants of Masonry: Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, promoting a way of life that binds like minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social, and educational differences.
