Freemasonry is the world’s largest, oldest and best-known gentleman’s fraternity. It is based on the medieval stonemason guilds who built the great castles and cathedrals of Europe. Modern Freemasons use the tools, traditions and terminology of those stonemasons as allegories for building temples in the hearts of men. It’s said that we are a secret society. We do indeed have secrets—secrets that each individual man has to discover for and about himself. Maybe it’s for you.

Have you ever considered becoming a Mason?  Many men are surprised that no one ever asked them to become a Mason. Some might even feel unworthy of joining. However, it works another way. Masons may not ask others to join the fraternity.

Masons can talk to friends about Masonry, telling them what Masonry does in general.

Masons can tell others why they find Masonry of value to themselves. To Be One, Ask One. (2B1ASK1!)

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Mason.
