WHAT IS FREEMASONRY?
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. Its roots lie in the traditions and ceremonies of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles. Some rituals are still celebrated today.
WHAT IS THE AIM OF FREEMASONRY?
There is no one single aim of Freemasonry; the only thing which it offers all Freemasons is to enrich their lives for the better. Every single Freemason will tell you a different story about how the organisation has contributed to their daily lives. Through contact with other Freemasons and the teachings and guidance within the Lodge it is always intended to make 'a good man better'. It builds on strong morals and Freemasons are encouraged to speak openly about the organisation.

Freemasonry being universally spread across the earth then the common beliefs bring together a commonality of people without prejudice of race or religion. Through this unification it breaks down many differences that can otherwise separate or come between us as a group.
