WHAT WE DO
Freemasons are a diverse group of men and members of the Order of Eastern Star come from all walks of life, from many religions and many backgrounds. We follow a centuries-old tradition which started with the guilds of stonemasons in medieval times and evolved into an influential modern-day organization. Today Freemasonry is more relevant than ever, giving men support to navigate changing times and become the best they can be.
Charity is a universal characteristic of Masonry. It has been said that “the Masonic Way is to give without remembering and to receive without forgetting.” Charity is at the core of Freemasonry. It has been since the founding of this great fraternity, and continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of society.
