Universal Friendship Lodge No. 9759

What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with spiritual and social values. Masons are taught moral lessons and self-knowledge. A series of ritual dramas which each mason learns by heart and performed within each Lodge is how a freemason learns these lessons. For many centuries our ancient brethren have been learning these rituals which are still in practice today. While performing these ritual dramas Masons wear regalia which represent rank within the lodge. This regalia is made up of an apron (different depending on rank)  and at times, collar and jewels (depending on their position in office)

A Freemason is taught many things but none more important than having a moral and ethical approach to life. Freemasonry seeks to reminds that there are those who are not as fortunate and that we should help those in need where possible. Freemasonry also promotes honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount.

All members are free to be open about their membership. Its constitutions, rules and ritual are in the public domain and there is no secret about its aims and principles.
