People have their own reasons why they enjoy Freemasonry. The following is a sample of some of the reasons given:
Achievement – progressing through the various offices in the Lodge to become Worshipful Master.
Brotherhood – making new friends and acquaintances from all walks of life, every background and age group.
Charity – being able to contribute to deserving causes, both Masonic and non-Masonic.
Education – learning from peers and mentors by practising ritual and making short speeches.
Knowledge – finding out about the history and mysteries of Freemasonry.
Self improvement – making a contribution to your family and society.
Masonry recognises no distinction of religion and emphasises the duties of citizenship. Religious or political discussion is not permitted in Lodge meetings.
