WHAT IS FREEMASONRY
Masonry is a unique institution unlike other organizations, Its
mysteries have been passed down mouth to ears for centuries. It is
not a secret society, but, simply keeps Masonic information within
its society and is not open to the public at large; just as a family
would keep certain tacts from their neighbors.
Freemasonry is an international fraternity or brotherhood of masons,
whose members practice Masonic philosophy. This philosophy was
derived from early stone masons who formed societies and
associations to teach and help one another. Their tools and certain
parts of buildings were given particular meanings. Modem masonry
or speculative masonry is the study and practice of these tools and
principles to build standards of conduct and morality within the
individual. Its principles promote equality, tolerance, cooperation
and mutual assistance among its members.
